This past weekend I had the honour of making the wedding cupcakes and cake for an old coworker. They chose turquoise and yellow as their colours, and everything in the hall looked AMAZING! We had a few hiccups and made on-the-fly decisions during the process but it ended up really complemented the decor.
Everything is coconut cake with coconut buttercream. All of the decorations are handmade out of fondant (50 large flowers, 8 small and the "ribbon" band) except the cake topper (isn't it ADORABLE?!) and the tree stand. I added the flower vase to fill table space and some glass rocks to cover up a few scratches on the rental stand.
Haven't posted in awhile and am just gonna make this a quick one.
The last few custom orders I've had have been 'adult' oriented: a pirate penis bachelorette cake, boobie cupcakes and now these. I also made a Cars 2 themed set of cupcakes for a boy's birthday but I'll post those separately later. This girl requested "Dirty 30" cupcakes for her friend's birthday. They were Martha Stewart's marble recipe with just a standard chocolate buttercream and fondant/sprinkle decorations. I'm loving the cute wrappers I got at Michaels! Just going to post the best shot.
This is a totally new thing for me!! It was a request from a friend. The cupcakes were a bit drier than I expected and I only baked them for 16 minutes... I would probably add more banana and/or milk next time. Other than that, delish!
I made these Pumpkin Cupcakes the other day and they are probably my second favourite all time after these chocolate ones I make. They're based on the ingredients in pumpkin pie so they are a little sweet and spicy, not savoury. EVERYONE loved them; they went so fast!! And check out the cute leopard liners
