A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of collaborating with Carmen from Little and Lively for her sweet daughter’s birthday.

Carmen came to me with a lovely vision: a Swan Lake ballerina party! The soft color palette she chose and the inspiration she shared couldn’t have been more perfect.

So off I went to design some soft pink meringues, swan shaped sugar cookies, a darling doll cake with a frilly white dress and cupcakes.

For the mini cupcakes, I used a 1M tip. Some may think it’s too big for such a small cupcake but I love the big swirl it gives! I finished them off with gold sanding crystals for that touch of sparkle.

I used a heart shaped cookie cutter for the swans and then used edible marker to draw the swan onto the cookie before I began piping. I also used the brush embroidery technique to get a feathered look on the wings. Don’t they look adorable!

For the meringues I used my trusty 1E star piping tip to achieve those whimsical puffs of deliciousness!

Finally, to decorate the doll cake, I used Wilton’s 104 petal tip to create the ruffles in buttercream. 

The birthday girl looked like she had a wonderful time and I hope the guests enjoyed the treats!

Special thanks to Jayme Anne Photography for the darling photos!
