Yellowbird's Is In Business

So, since losing my job several months ago,
the idea of me starting
a cupcake/bakery business
has been thrown around.

And yesterday,
I got my first official order!

I am SOOO excited!

I went home and tested a recipe
the flower design.

Here it is:

Vanilla Cupcakes
w/ a Super Yummy Buttercream Frosting
AND...Marshmallow Flowers (which I will be perfecting over the next 2 weeks)


  1. How exciting! I love those marshmallow flowers, they look just like orchids :)

    Happy baking!

  2. awwww The flower is so precious! Paul likes to call anything that is made of marshmellow "mallows" and while he doesn't eat them, he loves them? He's a weird kid.. I'm kind of rambling here aren't I? haha!

    I had to give up my job to move here with the hubs and I'm STILL trying to get back up on my feet with my purpose -- I'm so flipping stoked you found out what you would LOVE to do and are doing it! Whoohooo! Congrats on your first order! and Bake your buns off darling! <3

  8. Thanks so much ladies!!! :D I'm still so so excited! Cannot wait to get it done!

  9. So exciting!! I've tossed the idea around for awhile too and last year it really took off from word of mouth and FB! I actually got too many orders and burnt out, but I'm slowly starting to get back into it again! I've posted some of my cakes if you wanted to take a look but I have a lot more I have to get up yet! Great job on your cupcakes!

  10. Burnt out? That exists in the baking world...ah! So scary! :D

    Congrats to you! I hope to follow in your shoes!
