Brae Howard Photography

Brae is a talented photographer that shot Kendra & Alex's wedding, for which I made the cake and cupcakes. She was kind enough to pass along some shots that included the treats!

Turtle cupcakes!

These things are killing it. I swear I find a new favorite every month. My friend and aerial student Nyssa wanted to order a treat for her Mom, who loved turtle candies. We came up with this concoction - chocolate cake filled with caramel. The clincher for this is the frosting. I candied pecans and used them to top the 'cakes, along with finely chopping them up and adding them to that browned butter cream cheese frosting I love so much. Unreal.
Oh and some chocolate shavings and caramel on top too. of course. 

Fall Baby Shower

One of my dear friends, Kelly, was arranging a baby shower for her cousin and wanted to include some fall themed cupcakes. They decided on pumpkin with browned butter cream cheese frosting and vanilla with spiced frosting - great choices! That browned butter frosting is my absolute favorite thing right now! I matched the green/blue/brown color scheme and Kelly made the acorns out of Hershey kisses and mini Nutter Butters (my sister originally saw this great idea on Pinterest - thank you!)

The Junior League of Philadelphia - Taste of Fall Event 2012

I was honored to be a part of the Taste of Fall Event this October which benefitted the Junior League's efforts to bring food education throughout the city. That handsome man above is Billy, my boyfriend, who happily stayed to represent Nutmeg when I had to leave for work. The event seemed to be a succes, both for the Junior League and Nutmeg! Not a cupcake was left in sight (we should have brought more) and many people had their first Nutmeg treat. Flavors included: Chocolate PB, Pumpkin Spice, Spiced Vanilla Bean and Double Chocolate - all in mini form! Angela from even included us in a great article about the day:
