This cupcake order couldn't have been filled with more love and adoration. A good friend of mine, had contacted me wanting to surprise her husband with some cupcakes as a 'We love you' and 'Welcome home' gift. Unfortunately, over the Christmas holidays, a medical emergency arose, and a lengthy stay in the hospital was necessary. While recovering, she thought it would be a great idea to surprise him by presenting him with cupcakes at their sons first birthday party. He had no idea that...Covert Operation - "We Love Papa" was in FULL effect!!!!

After discussing a few different flavor options, OK...maybe more than a few ;) I was given the 'ok' to pick what flavors I thought would work - eeek!!! After much deliberation, I decided that the Guinness Cupcakes topped with a Peanut Butter Buttercream, and the Lemon Berry-Licious would be the lucky two winning flavors!

These cupcakes were then made even more special by the addition of personalized cupcake flags. I decided to go with a more mature silver/grey/blue colour scheme. I wanted the cupcakes to stand on their own and not blend in. However, it was also important that they didn't interrupt the main celebration of their sons first birthday. The tags were a mixture of 'Welcome Home Papa', 'We Missed You', 'We Love You', some flags were patterned, and others plain. I also added flags with all family members names on them.

I felt honoured to be part of such a special occasion. I look forward to being a part of more, and wish you all Love, Health and Happiness!
