Watermelon Cupcakes for Charlotte's 1st Birthday!

My friends Dan & Megan Woolf are the best couple.
They are the kind of husband & wife that when you hang out with them...you can just feel that they are meant for each other.  A great match.  To top it off, a year ago....Megan & Dan's baby Charlotte was born.


This photo of Charlotte was taken by Dan Woolf!

To celebrate, I made *the best* of the best cupcakes and cake for their little Charlotte's 1st birthday.


The theme of the party was watermelon everything!  I made a giant watermelon cupcake cake for Charlotte to play with..and of course I made a "photo frame" topper of her dad's photography work!


....smaller versions of the bigger watermelon cupcake cake for the grown ups!



Watermelon seeds fresh from the Amanda Cupcake garden...my watermelon seeds are made out of chocolate!


Chocolate Dipped Melon Gummies with Disco Dust Sprinkled on Top. Not what you see in your everyday candy shoppe!



This one reminds me of those special HUGE watermelons you see in the garden.  The big momma watermelon.

A quote from a party go-er, "I love that they are all so different from each other."


  






The kids and I were debating over what kind of melon is a blue melon? Well, it looks good and tastes yummy..and is chocolate glitter coated. That's what matters. Not everything has to make sense!

Swirls and swirls of endless happy fun.






"It was bigger than her head and even though she was covered in frosting, I think the cupcake still won! Great job Amanda! And the smaller ones were super yummy also!" ~quote from Eric, a partygoer. 

The green cupcake liner is edible!

I thought "Birthday Girl" would be more fun than spelling out Charlotte's name. After all, we can see who the birthday girl is framed on top of the cake!



Charlotte playfully sits on top of the frosting swirls! 




The final display. ♥
Welcome to another wonderful year of life, Charlotte!

  3. Amanda,
    The cupcakes were a joy to look at and to eat too!! Charlotte LOVED smushing your delicious frosting all over - especially in her hair and on her tummy! You made her birthday party so beautiful - we are blessed that you were a part of her special day :)
