Lucky Themed Cupcakes!

I was asked to make cupcakes for an organization called Daybreak. It's a non-profit organization dedicated to providing activities to individuals with disabilities and/or mental illness.

The group is having a lucky themed party tomorrow afternoon, so all the cupcakes I made have a story behind them.


Elephant:
Feng Shui and the Ganeshsa is the Hindu God of Luck. The elephant has also made its way into British, Canadian and United States cultures as a good luck charm in the 1930s.

Frog:
The Frog has been a symbol of prosperity, wealth, friendship and abundance in many cultures and a symbol of fertility in others. Frogs are also said to be effective in speeding up recovery from disease.

Butterfly:
Many people have found, through personal experience that butterflies are omens of good luck. It is thought that the gentle fluttering of a butterfly is a manifestation of evasive good fortune. A butterfly is a symbol of freedom and perfection in nature.
