We are often asked if we can put a complete logo or photo on a cupcake. Due to the time involved in hand detailing certain logos, we have to decline some of the more complicated designs. Yes…I’m sure you have all seen those sheet cakes with pictures on them. Maybe for a graduation cake or a child’s favorite cartoon character. Those images are printed on “edible paper” that basically bleeds into the icing it is placed on to create an edible image on a cake. The taste and texture can sometimes be unpleasant, and the cost of the imaging system and upkeep are not very pleasant either, so we declined to install that little ball of trouble too.
Now, when a client brought me her own personalized M&M’s with baby pictures to put on mini cupcakes for a 40th birthday party, I thought I just gotta share this one. You can get your very own personalized M&M candies at www.mymms.com and add words, logos, faces, etc. and choose your own candy colors. I think they’d be great on a candy “buffet” table for a theme party, wrapped up in favors, or just as a gift in and of itself (they offer a gift box online). Or…of course…you can put them on cupcakes.
