A Day to Celebrate – Wedding Anniversary

on Valentine's DayFEB 14 – Valentine’s Day.

My friend starts to ask if I will have any cupcakes for sale on this Special event.  I was so busy with CNY celebration which I do not intend to stretch myself for Valentine’s Day.

A week before Valentine’s Day,  I had some left over cupcakes from CNY and I started to decorate with   –  I ♥ U so that I can post something for my blog.  Right after I posted the picture at Facebook-tweethomemade , friends started to ask if they could place order?  hmm… why not?

One of my high school friend would like to prepare her celebration for Wedding Anniversary that falls on Valentine’s Day and she asked for my recommendation.  So I immediately look at her facebook photo and get all related information and proposed a family cupcakes include herself – Evian, hubby and her new born – Annabel, and not to forgot to place their wedding date on this mini cake.  A White cake box is rather boring, so I gave a simple touch on the box. (The complete package is still with me, i do hope that i can put a smile on her face when i deliver to her this evening!)

Happy Valentine’s Day and Happy Anniversary to Evian & WC
