Cupcakes & Cocktails
my inspiration for the party circles came from a candy mold for gems that I picked up at Hobby Lobby in Kansas City. I couldn't stop making pink gems, so I decided to pair it with one of my favorite patterns, damask.
I decided on two types of cupcakes with matching cocktails...and in my world, the cupcakes come first!
Kahlua martini cupcakes with cream cheese frosting and edible gems (paired with a Kahlua martini)
and champagne cupcakes with strawberry whipped cream (paired with a champagne cocktail)
Normally, the unanimous drink of choice is wine but the ladies seemed to enjoy the champagne cocktail and Kahlua martini for a change. I say that because only one bottle of wine out of 8 was opened!
the munchies menu consisted of an assorted cheese platter, sausage stuffed mushrooms, asparagus wrapped in prosciutto, spanakopita, some kettle corn and a cupcake fondue recipe I found on Pintsize Social
we all ended the night with a cupcake pop (really just a marshmallow dressed up as a cupcake)
One last and final picture I just MUST throw in....
my 'sometimes' supportive husband making the fondue for the cupcake fondue station
I got a lot of heat for writing that under the about me section of this blog so this one is for my husband, who was incredibly helpful that night... Thank you John!
