Autumn Cupcakes for a Cause...

Those were the cupcakes I made for Cupcakes for a Cause. It was a Bake Sale at Brooklyn Flea Market organized by Cupcakes Take The Cake. I hope we got to sell all cupcakes the volunteers took. I made them in Autumn Theme.

Coconut cupcakes decorated with marshmallow fondant and chocolate icing and coconut filling (Beijinho in Brazil):

Wedding Cake Course with Brazilian Cake Designer

In the picture, it's me receveing the certificate from Flavia Millas, a very famous Cake Designer in Brazil who came for a 3-day class in Stamford, CT last weekend.
It was great!! She gave us really important tips and taught us her techniques and recipes. Everything delicious and beautiful!! She's been working with sugar for 21 years. And she is a very sweet person :) in both meaning lol.

PS: I did finish Wilton Course 3 and 4, just forgot to take pictures of the certificate which I'll do soon.
