Blackened Catfish and Shrimp Scampi in a Spicy Red Sauce

Don't forget that Alexandria's Creations is here for all of your dinner party and hors d'oeuvres needs as well as baked goodies! I have been on a seafood kick lately so blackened catfish seasoned with Cajun spices and fresh cracked black pepper is always an excellent choice! On the spicier side we have the shrimp scampi pasta which is enhanced with sriracha and crushed red peppers to add a little edge to the traditional scampi pasta; both of these options are excellent for small dinner parties that Alexandria's Creations would love to cater for you!

Holiday Cupcakes

It has been too long since my last post, my apologies! Over Thanksgiving break I was able to really take it easy and spend time with my family and relax! I did have a few goodie orders for Oreo cupcakes, carrot cake cupcake (with fresh grated carrots, raisins and walnuts) and red velvet cupcakes (not pictured, I feel like you have seen enough of my red velvet beauties). Hope you enjoy the pictures and contact Alexandria's Creations for all of your baked and cooked good needs!

How Cute are these?

Chaminade Julienne HS STEM Fair Cupcake Display

I am so proud of my Alma Mater for developing a STEM program and sharing various STEM opportunities with the community! Being an engineer myself I wish that more kids, especially young ladies, would pursue STEM fields so I was all about the opportunity to get the name of Alexandria's Creations out while promoting an excellent cause! I was asked to provide 150 cupcakes for the event and the proceeds of the sales went to 'Cupcakes for Congo' mission through the school. Win for everyone, people enjoyed the cupcakes and it was all for a great cause!

Let Alexandria's Creations set up a cupcake or sweets bar at your next event!

Disney Cars 2 Birthday Party

Alexandria's Creations had the pleasure of creating cupcakes and party favor cake pops for two very special little boys Kaden, age 2 and Jaxon, age 1, celebrating birthdays over the weekend! They love Disney Cars 2 so I thought they needed extra special 'smash' cupcakes! They really enjoyed them, who doesn't enjoy Alexandria's Creations' Red Velvet Cupcakes!!!

Boxed up and ready for delivery

Red velvet is always and excellent choice

Cupcakes and Lettuce Wraps

I have been neglecting you all but Alexandria's Creations has had a busy weekend {yay}!!! Saturday started off with 20 chocolate covered strawberries infused with peach vodka, 20 regular chocolate covered strawberries and lettuce wraps for a group of 20 (sorry no pictures, I think you saw enough around sweetest day)! Both items were crowd favorites! 
The evening ended with 2 dozen red velvet cupcakes and 2 dozen French vanilla cupcakes for an adult birthday party!
Blame the hubby for taking the camera so I had to get these shots with my cell phone camera (not great quality)...
Enjoy!!! Sunday was busy too so hang tight and you will see tomorrow (I have to keep you coming back)!

I'm ready for my close up

Soccer Goodies

Yay for soccer and the goodies that come along with them! I had the pleasure to make 3 dozen cupcakes for a local high school soccer team and from what I hear they were a hit, I know... go figure!!!  Red velvet, Oreo and hot chocolate (for all of those cold days on the soccer field, parents know exactly what I mean).

Contact Alexandria's Creations for all of your special events!!!

Oreo cupcakes with real Oreo pieces baked into the cupcake

One beautiful dozen

One dozen red velvet 

Sugar crystals really make for a classy cupcake

As do candy pearls (in a dressed up classy way)


I associate most things I love with food/drink so why not pay tribute to those cold times out on the field with a nice hot chocolate cupcake topped with marshmallows

And the soccer balls... gotta have the soccer balls

3 dozen of Alexandria's Creations ready for delivery

Love it! Contact Alexandria's Creations for your upcoming events

Cupcake Craze -- Pineapple Upside Down and Peach Cobbler Cupcakes

Alexandria's appreciates the 'traditional' cupcake but lets face it the more wild the more appealing! Pineapple upside down cake is a classic favorite so why not make it into a cupcake! What can I say about peach cobbler... {currently salivating} this is a wonderful down home treat with the right touch of spices and fresh peaches!

Why stick with the 'traditional' pies for the holidays??? Contact Alexandria's Creations to place an order; if you can dream it, Alexandria's can develop it!

Cupcake Kits are also available!
