Nursery Rhymes Baby Shower Cupcakes

A great friend asked us to make baby shower cupcakes, we were a bit nervous at first since she works in design! We came up with a nursery rhymes theme and got to work. The expecting mom loves chocolate and caramel, so we made chocolate cupcakes, filled with caramel, iced with chocolate ganache and decorated with fondant. As always, become a fan on our facebook page and see our flickr account for more photos! Our previous cupcake projects can be found on the right side-bar, archived monthly (or scroll down to go to the next page).

Pat-a-cake, pat-a-cake, baker's man!
Bake me a cake as fast as you can.
Pat it, and roll it, and mark it with "B."
And put it in the oven for Baby and me.

Hickory, dickory, dock,
The mouse ran up the clock;
The clock struck one.
The mouse ran down,
Hickory, dickory, dock.

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall.
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
All the king's horses and all the king's men
Couldn't put Humpty together again.

Jack be nimble,
Jack be quick,
Jack jump over the candlestick.

Jack jumped high,
Jack jumped low,
Jack jumped over and burned his toe.

Little Bo Peep has lost her sheep,
And can't tell where to find them;
Leave them alone, and they'll come home,
Wagging their tails behind them.

Three blind mice. Three blind mice.
See how they run. See how they run.
They all ran after the farmer's wife
She cut off their tails with a carving knife.
Did you ever see such a thing in your life?
As three blind mice.

Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are!
Up above the world so high,
Like a diamond in the sky!

This little piggy went to market.
This little piggy stayed at home.
This little piggy had roast beef,
This little piggy had none.
And this little piggy went "Wee! Wee! Wee!" all the way home.

Hey diddle diddle,
The cat played the fiddle,
The cow jumped over the moon.
The little dog laughed to see such sport,
And the dish ran away with the spoon.

Baa, baa, black sheep,
Have you any wool?
Yes sir, yes sir,
Three bags full.

One for the master,
One for the dame,
And one for the little boy
Who lives down the lane.

Old Mother Goose,
When she wanted to wander,
Would ride through the air
On a very fine gander.

Good night, sleep tight,
Don't let the bed bugs bite.
Wake up bright,
In the morning light,
To do what's right.
With all your might.
