Cacti Cupcakes

I typically don’t accept cupcake orders for my cacti cupcakes, but when the request came in for them to be sent to one of my favorite fashion designers this week – I ecstatically took on the job.  Yesterday, I recreated my cacti cupcakes for the amazing Mara Hoffman to celebrate her incredible (seriously, INCREDIBLE) New York Fashion Week spring 2015 collection…which also had some strong cacti vibes.  And while these cupcakes are beautiful on their own, I decided to hand-paint the cake box for an added personalized touch. I was so honored to be thought of for this job – Mara’s designs have always been such a huge source of inspiration for me and it was just so dang awesome getting to make these for her.

Unfortunately I didn’t get to take any photos with my real camera, but here’s a few lo-res iPhone shots from the delivery box.
