Margarita Cupcakes

My birthday is coming up!
It's not till next week but I'm going out tonight to the local bars to celebrate with a few of my friends
I only thought it appropriate to make cupcakes!
I love margaritas so I decided to make margarita cupcakes, with actual tequila in them.
you defiantly can taste the tequila its amazing!

First start pipe the frosting.
This is my first time using an actual Wilton piping kit.
So much easier than I thought it was going to be!

Swirl design

Slice the lime

Place it on top where you think it looks good.

Add sprinkles to make it look like colored salt that margaritas usually have.

Next add a straw for a little of bit of humor and looks ;)

You're ready to eat/drink up!

Bar is ready ;)

Rough Sketches for Cupcake Logo

I am working on creating a cupcake logo for an up and coming bakery.
Not sure of the feel I want to give the logo so first I'm trying nail down a style.
My first cupcake is a creamy playful cupcake.
This is a more full and plump cupcake.
I would add more fullness with color

More boxy cupcake design. More classical and fresh.

Fun, Tip-Top cupcake. I like the balance this one is portraying.

This is a modern cupcake.
I wanted to make one that was abstract.

This is my cartoon cupcake.
Fluffy and fun!
