Richelle and Gary - 10/22/10

A big LP congratulations to our favorite newlyweds, Richelle and Gary! The wedding was so great and unique, and the bride looked BEAUTIFUL! 

It was a sweet tooth's dream! A chocolate fountain, candy bar, and all the cake and cupcakes you could want! We were so honored to make the cupcakes for them. We used our signature red velvet cakes throughout their engagement (via "cosmo "cupcakes and her pink tiered cake)  topped with cream cheese frosting. To make it extra special, we created wrappers for around the cakes, to add some beautiful jewel-toned color!!

Check out the pictures from the event!

Ask LP question of the day: CHOCOLATE

You ask! We answer!! 

Question: What is the difference between "unsweetened cocoa" and "sweet baking chocolate"?? 
Answer: SUGAR! (Believe it or not!)  Sweet baking chocolate has added cocoa butter and sugar, while unsweetened chocolate is pure (100% cacao) chocolate, without added sugar. I like to use the sweetened baking chocolate for my brownies!

Have a baking question?? Email! 

Happy baking!

Love to Etsy!

Introducing one of our favorite vendors, The Bakers Confections!! It's a great idea to coordinate your cupcake liners with the theme of your party. They have everything from solid colored mini liners in multiple colors to gingham or polka dots!

What is also so great about these ladies is that they donate a portion of their sales to the Maine Children’s Cancer Program. 

From their bio: "The Maine Children's Cancer Program was created to meet the needs of children with cancer and their families. Based in Scarborough, the program's treatment center is a special place where children with cancer, and their families from across Maine and New Hampshire, find the highest quality medical care, along with support, love and hope. Our goal is to help keep cancer from getting in the way of letting kids be kids. For our part we will be donating 20% of all sales of any cookies & rice crispy pops both on our website and in our etsy shop."

Take a look at some of their adorable liners!!
Halloween liners - BOO!
Standard - Zebra Print
Mini - Polka Dots

Celebrity post! My Oreo birthday cake!

When my dear friend Erin offered to bake me a cake for my birthday this year, it didn't take long to come up with my dream combination: OREO + CHOCOLATE! I lent her my 9 inch pans, and told her to include my two favorite flavors, and make me proud..... 

She sure did!! Take a look at this beauty! 

I just loved it!! It was so delicious and so perfect, I couldn't ask for anything more! She used chocolate cake mix, layered with no bake Oreo filling, covered in vanilla frosting (mixed with the no-bake Oreo crust)! Such a great recipe, so delicious!! THANK YOU AGAIN, LOVEBUG!! xoxoxo

Lola Pearl bakes lemon meringue pie birthday cupcakes!

These cupcakes were a birthday present to myself with love. A delicious, moist lemon cake is filled with homemade lemon curd, and then topped with a traditional french meringue. (Toasted for 5 minutes in the oven for that authentic lemon meringue pie experience!)

I couldn't resist taking this picture of my pup, eyeing the cupcake as I stuffed my face ;)
