I had a request recently for Farmyard Cupcakes. I’ve been wanting to do these for sometime, so was quite excited when this order came in. My client wanted Cows, Tractors, Pineapples and a Farmer’s Hat.
All fairly easy to make out of Sugarpaste. I pictured gorgeous Black/white cows with pink noses – until she told me that they had to be Brangus/Angus Cows ie brown ones, not Friesland (dairy cows). Now by looking at a black/white cow on a cupcake it is fairly easy to see what it is. Not so with a brown cow! Is it a teddy bear? A dinosaur? A horse? Anyway, after a bit of fiddling i got my cows right. The rest were a breeze. John Deere Green Tractors. So cute. Yellow pineapples. And Brown Farmer’s Hats. I did a mix of chocolate cupcakes, togethe with vanilla caramel cupcakes.
My client absolutely adored them – as did her father (they were his birthday cake). And obviously my cows don’t look too bad – because I’ve had orders for more!
