We love cupcakes!!

This was, probably, one of the posts I enjoyed the most working on. Mainly, because every time I work on a post, I am really focused on perfection.  During a normal photoshoot, I want to get the right angle of the cake, I arrange the nicest setting so it looks "inviting", I want the whites to be spotless... In short, it's kind of a task.

But this time, it was all about the kids, and having fun with sugar!!... oh Lord, did they have fun... They took me on a ride... And I just let go!!


Cupcakes up for grabs!!... The kids went bananas when they saw this tray full of cupcakes!!

I gave each one a piping bag with colored buttercream, and they loved making their own decorations, as well as they loved the fact that there were no limits or boundaries; they could do whatever they wanted to do with the cream; they could combine, and sometimes even check the taste of it...

What is a cupcake without sprinkles??... We had different sorts of sprinkles, so they could be creative and have fun decorating.

Tadaaaa!!... So this is the final product!!... Isn't it just beautiful??... The cupcakes ended up so colorful... just by seeing the photo makes me smile. The kids definitely knew what they were doing, I didn't need to give any direction, they just went with the flow, and the result speaks for itself!!

Needless to say, the best part of the whole "cupcake playdate" was actually eating the cupcakes. The kids had so much sugar, that I needed to take them to the park afterwards for them to release some energy, but it was well deserved... They worked really hard to get the "task" done...

The two very special guests that we had this week are Giorgia & Beatrice. They have been friends of my kids since so long, and now their whole family is moving to Italy due to their father's job. I only want to say that I am sure that this new chapter in their life is going to be filled with blessings... I will miss you guys!!

And talking about goodbyes, I would like to announce that I am taking a few weeks off, before I start my very own adventure. At the end of August I will begin a cake designing course at "The French Pastry School" in Chicago... {so excited!!!}

I'll keep you posted!!

Have a sweet week,
