Birthday Cupcakes

This was a fun creation. I was given the choice to create 12 birthday cupcakes with my choice of toppers. So I decided to use my new cutters given to me by the relative from the USA - the primrose and petunia cutters. I had left over purple and pink fondant so I used that as my colour theme.

I love these because they are nice and bright and my new favourite "top view" shots of the cupcakes captures it well.

Christening Cupcake Tower

This cupcake tower was created for a christening last weekend. Simple two toned fondant daisy toppers and a cutting cake with a cross and booties.

To create the booties, I created a pattern on paper then cut out the fondant and glued them together using sugar glue. The cross was quite fiddly, I cut out the cross shape, embossed it with the swirl pattern and then using a sugarcraft gun I added the detailed edging.

Fairy Garden Birthday Cake

I am sorry that its been a while since I've written in my blog. I have been busy with orders and I am now finally free for a week, so it's catch up time.

This cake was created for a beautiful little girl named Avaleigh who is turning 1. Her mum requested a fairy cake in pink and purple theme.

I wanted to create a garden setting and I feel the end result was good. I really enjoyed creating this one. I also made 20 mini cupcakes to go along with the cake.

The cake is chocolate mud cake and iced with buttercream frosting - I find this frosting is the only frosting that can withstand the heat and humidity we are experiencing at the moment in Sydney.
