BUNCO Cupcakes & Baby Shower Cupcakes

by Christa on November 16, 2009

Post image for BUNCO Cupcakes & Baby Shower Cupcakes
Thursday is BUNCO night for the ladies of Carlsbad. Mini Baker was asked to provide dessert for November’s Bunco night.
They orderedRed Velvet Cupcakes and Mini Baker Toffee. I decided to add a special touch to the cupcakes, and to hopefully spread some luck! Don’t they remind you of the 40’s/50’s?!

This weekend was full of lots of baking for a baby shower in LA for Actress Laura Ramsey! Baby showers are my favorite because making desserts CUTE is just so much fun! On the list?….
  • Mini Lemon Cream Cupcakes with Lemon Buttercream
  • Mini Red Velvet Cupcakes with Vanilla Buttercream
  • and a 6″ Carrot cake with CREAM CHEESE FROSTING!

They did such a good job displaying everything!!

Mini Lemon Cream Cupcakes with Lemon Butter Cream and fondant flowers.

How cute is that name?!

One thing these orders had in common was CREAM CHEESE FROSTING! So here’s the recipe, so you all can make some ultra rich desserts!

Woops….guess I didn’t scan down far enough. Thanks for the answer at the end of these comments.


Marsha Zimmerman December 7, 2012 at 5:23 pm

Hello, I just happened to stumble onto your page. You have beautiful baked goods. Can you tell me how you made the dice, please? I really enjoyed looking at all of your creations!




Christa December 8, 2012 at 12:24 pm

Hi Marsha,
Thanks for the sweet comment! The fondant dice are very easy to make. Simply take a grape size piece of white fondant and roll in the palm of your hand to get all of the creases out. Next, squeeze between your thumb and pointer finger to start to create 6 even sides. You can keep doing it this way, or gently tap on a solid flat surface to create nice squared edges. If the fondant gets sticky, dust your hands with a little powdered sugar.
Once your dice have 6 square sides, use a non-toxic black marker to create the dots! And you’re done!
Happy Baking,


Marsha December 9, 2012 at 9:19 am

Thank you very much. I am just getting into baking for others, even though I’ve always enjoyed this hobby. I need to become more comfortable with fondant and it’s many uses.
Have a sweet day!
