This week I made cupcakes for a baby shower. The glowing mum to be is expecting a baby boy and wanted a mixture of chocolate and vanilla cupcakes with various shades of blue icing. The colour theme of the day was shades of blue with a little silver and white. We therefore chose to go with two blue shades and a silver in cupcake cases. The mum to be was not keen on the traditional baby decorations and preferred the cakes be decorated with silver and white cashous. The end result were some great little baby boy cupcakes. Hope your day was perfect Cindy and can’t wait to meet the little fella when he arrives! x
Here we have two awesomely yummy petite cuppies for a baby shower in a mixture of green, blue and pink cases. First we have banana and macadamia cuppies with chocolate buttercream frosting and topped with a macadamia nut. Second we have vanilla cuppies with passionfruit vanilla frosting and topped with a gold cashous. Both these cakes tasted devine!! (Of course I had to sample them first to make sure they were good! :P)
The mum to be loved them, just what she had asked for and were apparently a hit at the shower. Can’t wait to meet the little bubba when he or she arrives!!
I’m a bit behind with keeping the website up to date! Last week was Jayson’s 15th Birthday and I decided to give the topsy turvey cake a go. Jayson is a Titan’s supporter and loves his footy so combining his love of footy and my urge to try out the topsy turvey cake, we came up with a pretty cool cake.
I made a smaller version of the cake using square cakes. I started with two 20cm square caramel mud cakes (Jayson’s favourite!!) and cut to get four tiers in descending sizes. This cake is covered in a vanilla buttercream, however I feel it would look a lot better covered in ganache and fondant! I then used coloured fondant (in Titan’s colours of course!) to decorate each tier with a different pattern. The top tier was topped with a hand modelled Titan’s football! Jayson was happy with his cake and it went down well with the family also. Hope you had a great day Jays!! xx
