First event debut for Piwicakes!!

Hello everyone!!

After a very exhausting weekend I don't have a review ready for today, but instead I've decided to share some photos from the first event that my little cupcakes have been part of!

This Saturday was one of my best friend's wedding and she asked me if I could do a few mini-cupcakes for the candy bar she was setting up. We decided on 4 different flavours: Mango Lassi, Green Tea, Red Velvet and Chocolate Guinnes & Baileys.

Even if I'm not sure if I'm gonna do this as a side job, continue as just a hobbie and do it for friends and family, I decided I needed a name and logo and here it is! What do you think guys?



I have to give mad props and all the THANK YOU's in the world to Deb from On Cupcake Moon that made this logo for me, it's SO perfect!

And now, a few cupcake photos! Pictures taken of the candy bar table as it was just set up, before the mob got hint of the cupcakes and a stampede ensued! And I was worried about what to do if there were any cupcakes left... HA! Not even the crumbs!













I'm super pumped to continue baking after this successful event! And if you want more cupcakes, don't forget I'll have new book inspired cupcakes in this week's edition of Ink & Batter!

      I'm gonna be thinking of doing a few things for friends and family first to streamline my process and then I'm gonna start accepting small comissions here and there! =D

      I'm thinking of doing a few more events only for friends and family for a lil and start getting feedback and word of mouth spreading of the cupcakes... But I think I'm gonna try it as a side job!
      The green tea ones are really yummy, btw!

  5. I don't think I have any praises left for your cupcakes (my vocabulary is limited :P). Your friend is so lucky to have you! It was so incredibly nice of you to do that for her and I am not the least bit surprised there weren't any crumbs left, HAD I been there, I am sure most people wouldn't have gotten a cupcake.. :D

  8. What a great idea Pili, you have a real knack for it so doing it as a catering hobby on the side sounds like a great idea! I love your Piwicakes logo and name, it is so cute and really suits you.

  9. Pili, I've always known you had a knack for making super customized and personalized cupcakes, and have always thought you'd be succeessful if you were going to make it a business. I'm so happy to see you're taking that path. It's what you're really good at, and it makes other people happy (just looking at it makes me happy kay?? XDD), so it's the perfect fit! Super happy for you, hon >:D< >:D< >:D<
