These cupcakes were made for a 21st birthday celebration. The birthday girl already had some large cakes for her party but wanted some cupcakes for the dessert table to offer as an alternative. I decorated some of the cupcakes with a ’21′ made out of fondant and added some sugar pearls to jazz (I like that word) them up a bit.
The flavours were chocolate cupcakes with white chocolate buttercream frosting:
Another Giant Cupcake, this time for a friend of mine. She wanted a cake for her husband’s Nameday.
A Nameday, is very similar to a birthday, insofar as it involves gifts and cake. The main difference being that, instead of celebrating the day you were born, you celebrate……you guessed it – your name! It is a really popular tradition in Poland (and a few other countries I’m told). My question is, why do we not have it here in the UK???
This giant cupcake is a red velvet cake with vanilla buttercream frosting. The idea, was to make it look like an actual oversized cupcake – hence the giant buttercream swirl and the sprinkles. I am really pleased with how it turned out and so glad that they both loved it too.
Just over a week left til the big V-Day! Have you found your sweetheart yet? I know that it falls in the middle of the working week, which isn’t very romantic, but I still decided to whip up some of the cupcakes that will be on offer for those of you feeling the lurrrrveee. Because what better way to say I love you, than with baked goods?
Obviously all cupcakes shown below went through rigorous taste testing controls….and my family, friends and I are pleased to confirm that these cupcakes are delicious nom nom nom!
First up is a classic vanilla cupcake with vanilla buttercream, in these cute heart-patterened cupcake cases. They can be ordered plain or topped with a sugarpaste heart as seen in the second image.
Next are these rich chocolate cupcakes with a chocolate buttercream swirl. Shown here with and without the sugarpaste heart topper.
Finally, no Valentines Day would be complete without Red Velvet cupcakes, topped with a cool, creamy, Cream cheese frosting.
The above are just some examples of what’s on offer this Valentines. There are loads more flavours, sprinkles, glitters and designs available. I’m happy to discuss any ideas you might have. So what are you waiting for, get in touch!!
