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.
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.
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.
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.
