i'm still alive...

...but so exhausted!

I only got a few pictures of the cupcakes once they were set up on site, but here they are! I'm so relieved that it's all over. The couple was so pleased with the cupcakes and the display so that made me happy! The selection was: blue velvet with vanilla cream cheese frosting, chocolate devil's food with peanut butter buttercream frosting, chocolate devil's food with mint chocolate chip frosting, banana with honey cinnamon frosting, and strawberry with fresh strawberry buttercream frosting. All the regular size cupcakes had beautiful wrappers around them (that I found here).

A big thanks to my mom and the boyfriend for keeping me sane the last 48 hours!

Yesterday was also my Mom's birthday! After finishing up the cupcake display, we all headed to Paradise Cove Beach Cafe in Malibu. This is one of our favorite restaurants! It's right on the beach and the view is just gorgeous. It was wonderful to relax and just breathe. Of course we had to tell the server that there was a birthday, and they brought Mom the biggest slice of chocolate cake we'd ever seen!!

Today we are off to eat lunch and get massages! After all, we deserve it :)
Have a great weekend my lovelies!!
