Long time no see everyone! I intended to have these posted back in February for all of you (hence the hearts), but unfortunately due to a few computer issues and mesh complications, I could not get these up until now. But despite all of that, ta da! I always like adding new baked goods to my sim bakeries and so I decided to do something cute that tied into Valentines Day. These two plates of festive cupcakes are what I came up with Even though it is past the holiday now, these are still a cute item for your bakeries! Just like my Pizza Casserole, the wonderful AriesFlare has given me special permission to recolor her original Rainbow Cupcakes mesh, and so it is thanks to her permission and my random spurts of free time that I can present these to you today!

Red Velvet Cupcake: The first cupcake I created was the red velvet cupcake. It has pink cream cheese frosting as well as a pink wrapper.

Chocolate Cupcake: The second cupcake I created was a rich chocolate cupcake. It has a light red vanilla frosting and a wrapper with hearts all over it.





Final Thoughts...
I love all of AriesFlare's meshes and so I really enjoy having many recolors of her meshes. I hope you guys enjoy my two sets of cupcakes as well as your sim bakeries! Feel free to leave feedback, suggestions, comments, and thanks. See you guys soon!

Curious about my request policy or what I am working on next? I keep a brief and updated segment dedicated to this on my profile page.
