Art and Rainbow Colors Bday Party

8 Sep

As many of you might know I am obsessed with rainbow tie dye stuff.

This year we celebrated my daughter’s first year and my oldest son 4th year birthday party.

He is an artist, there is nothing that he enjoys more than to paint, draw, create, decorate.

and my little princess Amelie is my rainbow, she is all happy and smiles every single minute of the day.

Since they were born in the same month I created a rainbow-art birthday party for both of them.

I love loveee everything how it came out. Including my masterpiece the rainbow tie dye gluten-free cake…

Enjoy!

 

 

 

 

 

We are alive!

21 Jul

Yes, We are! … I have been trying to get something up in the past months … but course there was no even a minute extra to do anything else but kids, cakes, cupcakes and deliveries,

because we are growing, we are busy and sometimes overwhelmed. So if you are our friend, family, new customer please understand that we love you all but we are going to very busy times with our babies, company, and work and we are learning how to manage our day efficiently.

Anyways, here are our past 3 months, enjoy them <3

And these cupcakes where for a party where our pregnant friend was going to find out the sex of the baby. The filling either ( blue or pink ) was going to be the surprise... I love this idea <3

And I love this pic taken at 3 AM after a bottle of champagne and wine to celebrate that one of my best friends was in town after 2 years... I love this pic and this girl <3

Busy

29 Apr

And yes I am B U S Y… and if I though February was our busiest month, I have no idea of what was coming.
I started this year with my regular with 3 wholesale accounts, as of today I have 10, and many new clients and customers that have become part of our Bunnie Cakes family and personal friends.
So now my mornings look something like this everyday,

From making 200-300 cupcakes a week, our production grew to 300-400 cupcakes a day,

With that said, I got some new help; a wonderful intern who is graduating to be pastry chef and of course my children, specially Noah who always proceed to make his quality control checks ups on the cupcakes,

We celebrate St Patrick’s Day with our drunk green cupcake,

And our favorite food truck Dolci Pecatti, sold many cupcakes and the best gelato in Miami period ( please go and try them, I guarantee you will like every single flavor in their menu… ask for sorbets if you want a vegan option! )

Some cute cakes flew out our doors,

And our daughter became Miss little Bunnie Cakes, because I just can’t stop buying cupcake or bunny related outfits ( She is herself a mini cupcake … delicious!)

And back to our cupcakes … We just loved doing this birthday display for one of our customers… and who said that because is vegan have to look “healthy” or “not kid friendly” … think again! (everything below is vegan!)

And we also celebrate Earth’s Day with many vegan cupcakes at the Epic Hotel Residences in Brickell,

And our great new intern Angela,

I am busy, and when people ask how do I do it, I just don’t know what to say… I just do it !… thinking about them, my inspiration

:) And for all of you who ask… yes I do it all, I am the one that answer the phones, send you the invoices, bake, decorate and sometimes make deliveries and take care of those beautiful babies you see on the pictures,

So everytime you think you cannot take any other thing on your workload …just find your true inspiration I guarantee you that will keep you going,

PD – Please place your Mother’s Day orders with time. We are going to have a beautiful flower-cupcake display for that day.

Pics follow soon!

February

1 Mar

And it’s gone, February it’s gone… so fast, and so many things that happened,

New faces, new friends, new places, new customers… one of the busiest months so far since I started this company.

I am thankful  for that, I am still struggling with the problems of a small business owner, but with hope, dreaming of a new and better future for us and for this … my fourth baby… Bunnie Cakes,

Here is February, in images …

We received the month with a visit from Grandpa, he came all the way from Tampa to see us, and we spent a beautiful sunday afternoon together.

And while the boys were playing Amelie was loved…. oh so much loved,

we couldn’t stop looking at her,

And daddy came back home from his trip, (and his heart melted with Amelie and her bear outfit)

And that day we hit the food truck scene, a new culture of street food vendors and family gatherings that we found very welcoming.

And we placed our cupcakes inside Dolci Pecatti, met some wonderful new friends and sold tons of cupcakes and gelato.

While the boys were desperate to get out of their double stroller ..

And Valentine’s day came and we were booked and full with orders,

I baked day and night, made deliveries, answered phone calls, etc etc… but along with the stress I  met wonderful new customers, and baked some beautiful cupcakes that I am sure made some people very happy.

And my daughter dressed accordingly to the festivity with her red hearted thighs,

Next day Noah taught her about the colors and sounds of the bouncing toy,

And while they were playing, mommy made some Toy Story vegan Cupcakes,

And vegan cupcakes with princesses …

And a Rainbow Brite allergy free cake for a girl that never had a cake on her birthday,

And Superbowl Cupcakes…

And many other cakes and cupcakes….

And after working so hard, we went to the kite festival at Halouver beach,

where Amelie wore her swimsuit for the first time ( along with her sunglasses)

And the boys enjoyed the kites ( …and the ipad when they got bored of the kites)

And Amelie went on board the gelato food truck to help our friend Nati and her twin Stefani to sell more gelato :)

And as the day was gone, we watched the sunset and headed home, thankful for having great friends, and a beautiful weather.

And to finish this month we celebrated Noah’s second birthday,

And our vegan cake pops made their debut… ( and were very successful!)

and here we were, blowing the candles for Noah’s second birthday, with our family and friends, sharing the end of this month… a short one, but very busy and full of good surprises…

And we are BACK!

22 Jan

 

” To live with things and not in front of them, to no longer watch, but to realize that we are part of everything we see – this is the love that keep us moving back into wholeness when divided”

Mark Nepo

And I am back.

I feel it has been sooooooo long since I wrote last time, I don’t even know where to start.

I have been through so much these past months. Today after debating myself between laying in bed while Amelie sleeps or sitting down in front of the computer …. I sat and downloaded my past two and a half months in pictures,

And as Mark Nepo beautifully narrates in his book … I realized I was not longer watching but growing with every experience to the wholeness of this family,

So were you wondering what we were doing all this time, let my camera and my pics narrate that to you…

I fell in love with my daughter every morning…

 

And stared at her while she discovered new colors, shapes and sounds…

And our big boy started a new school …

And we had a great School Xmas Party 

Where Amelie found a new boyfriend ( who was completely in love with her outfit that day)

And we made some gingerbread men puppets…

In the meanwhile, we also decorated our house, and added the third boot this year for princess Amelie

And we added Amelie’s ornament to our tree 

    We opened presents that Santa brought us 

    And spent Christmas day watching Xmas movies 

    And Noah learned how to introduce his sister.. “A N E L E E E ” 

    And she became a delicious chunky baby 

    And somehow I managed to make some homemade applesauce for her…

    that she loved <3

     

    And many many many cupcakes… (even tough this little guy swiped tons of them)

    And a beautiful wedding display…

    And many many many cakes … (here are a few)

    And as I see my life these past months I know I have become a better and a more human person. I am busy, but I accept this busy time in life with love. Today while talking to my husband (who btw has been away for 2 weeks for work) … I realized that everything that I dreamed have come in the right moment and will come in the right moment. Meanwhile I will keep living with things and not in front of them…

    La llegada de Amelie. (Amelie’s arrival)

    26 Oct

    ["Breathing in I calm my body, breathing out I smile, dwelling on the present moment, I know this is a wonderful moment]“

    ["Respiro y calmo mi cuerpo, exhalo y sonrio, reteniendo el momento presente, se que este momemnto es maravilloso"]

    Del libro Living Buddha, Living Christ… Thich Nhat Hanh

    Estas aqui conmigo, estas aqui en mi corazon. Solo con levantarme y verte a mi lado se que tome la mejor decision, mi Amelie… Bienvenida.

    Nunca espere estar embarazada por tercera vez. Pero estoy aqui para ti, estoy segura que naci para aprender de ti, para aprender a ser madre. No hemos tenido el modelo de familia perfecto,  pero eso en mi mundo no es lo importante. Nada importa excepto el estar aqui. Dios esta conmigo, y estamos en esta situacion porque es la mejor. Aprendo de ti dia a dia, gracias por llegar a mi lado. Gracias por llegar a mi vida. Bienvenida.
