Hair Style Themed Cupcakes

WOW! This weekend was BUSY BUSY with baking!!!

I had an order for 30 sugar cookies decorated in panties and bras for a bridal shower.

So, Friday right after work, I made my cookie dough, rolled it out, cut them and baked them.

I had this new glaze recipe I wanted to try that made the glaze really shiny...worked wonderfully! But I was up until 3:00am decorating those babies!!! Im a bit of a perfectionist

when it comes to decorating and I am also the type that ideas started brewing as I am in the moment, so I really got into it!! My feet and back paid for it in the end...but they turned out soooo cute!! OH and stupid me, FORGOT to take pics of all my hard work!!!

That order was picked up Saturday at 1:30pm.

In addition to the cookies I baked a birthday cake for my step father's bday...

Scooby Doo theme (YES he LOVES Scooby Doo!!)

So, I baked the cake Friday night and got up at 8:00am to decorate on Saturday morning because my mom wanted to have an early lunch at 11:30am.

So off I was to lunch and the Scooby Doo cake but I had to be back by 12:45pm to put the

cookies in their little individual bags and tie off with ribbons before the pick up time of 1:30pm.

WHEW!!!! I made both deadlines and after the cookies were picked up....I proceeded straight to

my bed for a MUCH NEEDED NAP!!! :)

I then woke up and proceeded to bake 45 cupcakes for an order that was being picked up

Sunday at 10:00am. This was for a hair stylists bday she wanted a theme to fit the hair stylist. I initially started cutting out little hair dryers and scissors in fondant, but I didnt like the way the fondant looked so dull. So, I decided to do them in melted chocolate....YUMMY! Well, I did all of the chocolates Saturday night so they could set in the refridgerator overnight and then I woke up at 7:30am on Sunday and made chocolate buttercreme and vanilla buttercreme and started frosting away!!

They came out FANTASTIC and she loved them when she came to pick them up!!!

As soon as my order was picked up, off we went to a nice lunch in San Francisco with my hubby, mom, niece and auntie....GREAT way to end my busy weekend!!!
