Cupcakes galore!

We held our RSPCA cupcake morning tea at work today. It was a great success. I think we raised about $80 which is fantastic. Two other staff members contributed and when I arrived at work Tammy had a tablecloth on and two bowls of beautiful camelias.

She had made these yummy chocolate and cream butterfly cakes with some mini m & m's for decoration. They didn't last long.

She also made these Lemon Diva cupcakes, inspired by the first season of Masterchef. I was lucky enough to enjoy one of these.

Tammy has made these before so when they appeared they were in great demand, butterfly cakes with jelly and cream.

Bob had his daughter home on the weekend so she made 'frog' and 'pig' cupcakes for him to bring in.

I made two plates of these cupcakes with sparkly sprinkles and the cupcake toppers that I had made.

These are my flowerpots that I think were my favorite. They were so easy but the end result was great.

How cute are these 'beach babes'???? I just love them!

I also made these clown faces, perhaps my least favorite but still cute and popular.

I was able to bring home a few cupcakes but it was amazing that out of 10 dozen cupcakes there were not a lot left. A few Mums took some home with them at the end of the day, what an easy dessert!!!

Gret effort for the RSPCA love the flower pots. I can't beleive that you sat outside in Warrnambool on aturday. I was a t Modewarre watching a grndson play footy , watching from inside the car I sounded the horn when a goal was kicked and that was my participation. It's a wonder you thawed out.

All so pretty!!! What a fun thing to do (even though I know you were exhausted!). I like the flower pot cakes too.. I may borrow that idea very soon.

A table full of cupcakes? Now that's my idea of heaven!! lol!

I might try some of these ideas with the day care kids, during the next lot of school holidays - they would love trying them out!
The problem is, if they make something, they feel they're entitled to take it all home... so I guess I'll have to do some for myself as well. ;)
