Funky Pink Zebra Cupcakes
These cupcakes were for a little girl who was turning 4 and as you can tell she is a pretty fabulous little chicka! Her mom wanted pink and zebra striped cupcakes with a few different designs and these are what I came up with.
Some of the cupcakes were white cake with vanilla buttercream while others were chocolate cake with vanilla buttercream. Both classic combinations and both were sure to appease someone's taste in the crowd! There were no fondant on these cupcakes so everything you see here was buttercream with the exception of the gumball on top of the all pink cupcakes!
There were 3 dozens of these puppies, each dozen with a different design. The zebra print on these cupcakes was hand piped. Then it was outlined in pink just to keep the whole theme together. The zebra print cupcakes were the only ones that would sit in pink cupcake liners.
These cupcakes were topped with a pink buttercream swirl that was textured. At the peak was a single pink gumball... sure to please any child! These pink pretties were inside of a zebra print cupcake liner.
Last but not least, this cupcake design was the hubby's favorite! (He always has a say in my designs which I always appreciate!) It was a simple piped rose in vanilla buttercream. Then to set it off hot pink sprinkles were used to tie it to the other cupcakes. These cupcakes were also set in zebra print cupcake liners.
I love the way these cupcakes turned out and so did the birthday girl's mom! Judging by her response I think I have a cupcake customer for life her daughter and future son-on-the-way! I hope to do more cupcakes in the future because they are so fun and cute, so if you need some little cuppies... I'm your gal!
