Firetruck themed cupcakes

I was doing a cake and cupcakes for a firetruck themed party. So I will post these, and then post the cake in another post. We wanted to have a variety of different things on the cupcakes. So here are some with cute little fireman hats. (The number 4 because that's how old the birthday boy was turning.)
I hand cut these little fire hydrants
Of course you have to have some little fire trucks.
And the fire man's best friend, the firehouse dalmatian.
I loved the way these turned out, it was fun. The cupcakes were my from scratch chocolate recipe, with vanilla almond cream cheese frosting. The decorations were all mmf.

Brave themed Cake

This cake is themed after Disney's Brave. Which features Merida. (She's the one with all the curly red hair.)
 In the movie, Merida gives her mom a magic cake which changes her into a bear. They frequent this area with the stones quite a bit, and in the end she is able to turn her mom back into a human. My Reese  thinks it's very funny that the mom is naked, and it was her request that the mom be naked, (with the blanket covering her.) So I left out a little shoulder and a tiny bit of knee.
 Merida is very talented at archery, and so that is why we have the bullseye's with the arrows. Just thought I'd give you a close up of those.
 Here's a top view, it was a fun cake to make.
 By request, this cake was strawberry, with strawberry frosting, which was not so much because of the flavor, but that it would make the inside pink. Because I think it was just killing her that nothing on the outside was pink.

Bridal Shower Cupcakes

For a bridal shower, I whipped up 48 of these little cuties. She didn't care about the colors or what was on them, so I chose turquoise and coral, because I think that is such a pretty combination.
Some of the flowers had edible pearls in the center, just for a cute touch.
 These cupcakes were Red Velvet, with White Cream Cheese frosting.

 And the other half was moist white cake, with orange creamcicle frosting.
I think they turned out great!
