Okay, I will admit it. I have jumped on the cupcake bandwagon and boy do I love it!!!
Thankfully I’m not a sweet tooth and so the cupcakes are finding their way onto the hips of friends and family :)
It all started in January when my Goddaughter’s first birthday rolled around and on a wet day (yes last summer was the wettest summer EVER!!!) I decided to have a crack at them for her party. This was how they turned out…
From there it moved to a plea on Facebook to make rainbow cupcakes…CHALLENGE ACCEPTED: How could I pass up the chance to play with rainbow candy strips and Persian fairy floss (although I don’t recommend the fairy floss…its super fine and so it wilts after 2 seconds)
After that it just grew and grew to my friend birthday with these little ones. I will admit my mum made the roses (they were left over from a wedding cake she decorated).
Then my sisters 20th birthday came around and by then I was a pro with Coffee and Pecan cupcakes being added to my repertoire. (Click the link for a delish coffee pecan cupcake recipe)
Finally, my last project…I graduated to NAUGHTY cupcakes for my friend’s boyfriend. I have to admit (yes even at 21 years of age) I had a wee giggle whilst crafting these little boobs and bums :P (I had to do both as I didn’t know his preference haha)
Thank goodness there have been no more birthdays. I’m rather concerned for what comes after bums and boobs on a cupcake :/ . In all seriousness though these are so fun to make and actually so easy. Fondant icing is fun and easy to use and it means that the decorating possibilities are endless.
Until next time x
