My philosophy is “If you don’t try you will never know and always wonder, what if”. I told myself I would give myself one year in the cupcake world and if its not working, then I would have to go out a find a job. Its coming up close to a year that I started Serendipity Cupcakes and I believe I am on the right path, so I will keep plugging along. I am going to attach a picture of an event I participated in this past Saturday. My friend Lori Hartwell founder of Renal Support Network co-hosted a celebrity poker tournament along with Leyna Nguyen from Love Across The Ocean. Lori asked if I would like to do a display of cupcakes and of course I said “YES”. The best part of baking cupcakes is how to decorate them. Since this was a poker event, I went with a poker theme. I purchased a 5 tier cupcake stand, spray painted it white to give it a nice finished look and bought a ribbon that I thought resembled a spade and placed it around the raw edges. I found a little table cloth that was poker themed to place under the stand and then found poker themed cupcake liners, along with red and black riboon to drape down the tiers. I was lucky enough to find a mold of aces, hearts, spades and diamonds and made red and chocolate pieces. One thing I do not recommend is trying to write a name on a small cupcake. There were close to 60 celebrities and I wrote a celebrity name on each cupcake. I hope you like my poker display and the pictures I attach of Jack Black and myself with his Serendipity Cupcake.
