More Than Meets The Eye.

A few months ago, I was a cupcake sponsor for the ALS Benefit Ride here in Waupaca.


I made some tattoo inspired cupcakes. Rebellious and soft at the same time ♥


This one was dedicated to my friend's mom who suffered from ALS. ♥ My friend is the one who asked me to donate the cupcakes to the event.

Of course I said yes to the donation.  My mom has recently been diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. A really big reason California was just too far for me to live from my mom here in Wisconsin.

Even though ALS & Parkinson's aren't the same thing.. I know what it is like to want to do something to make a difference in someone's life that you love deeply. So I was more than honored to donate.


I like that Mom says Wow upside down. ♥


And out of this event..came even more cupcakes!
I donated a gift certificate - more and more and more cupcakes for the lucky raffle winner.


Transformer Cupcakes for Connor.
Requested with love by his mom. ♥



She even made this her profile picture on Facebook! That made me feel all warm and fuzzy.


I made the faces out of candy melts, so they are 100% edible. I printed the faces out on printer paper, and used parchment paper to trace.  I used piping bags to trace candy melt faces on the parchment paper. ♥ And this is how they turned out!


This monster cupcake sandwich was inspired by the hood of a car opening up. Inside the hood of this cupcake transformer are peanut butter cups. Yummmmm!




And of course..you can't have Transformer Cupcakes without *real* Transformers on top!




Fun to eat.. and Fun to play with too!



I think he wants a hug ♥


It looks like this order came full circle.. for daughters to give love to their moms.
And for a mom to give a dream come true in cupcakes to her son!

*More Than Meets The Eye*.I hope you loved them, Connor. ♥
