50 Shades of Grey Cupcakes

1 Comment »

I was asked to create 24 cupcakes for a Bachelorette Party earlier this year – and the theme? 50 Shades of Grey.

Hmmmmm ….

Here is what I came up with.

40th Anniversary Cake

1 Comment »

One of my regular clients approached me to make a cake for her parent’s 40th Wedding Anniversary, and this is what we came up with.

YM 40th Anniversary Cake
She wanted similar colours to her parent’s wedding day, and of course flowers.

The cake was red velvet on top, with the bottom tier being carrot. Both had cream cheese frosting.

I loved making this cake, and loved the look of delight on my client’s face when she saw it.

And the sms I received from her mom ” Thank you sooooo much for the beautiful cake you baked for our 40th Wedding Anniversary! It tasted so yummy too!

Wedding Cupcakes

1 Comment »

A couple of weeks ago I met up with a Bride to discuss her wedding cake requirements with her. She had a picture of the cake she wanted, but was unsure of what flavours to have in the three tiers.

So what better way to help her decide than to take with a selection of cupcakes in assorted flavours, including carrot cake with cream cheese frosting, chocolate with mocha frosting, vanilla caramel with vanilla frosting, red velvet with cream cheese frosting and chocolate with chocolate frosting.

Her colours are blue and silver, and she loves butterflies, so I tried to incorporate all of those elements into the design of the decor for the cupcakes. Clusters of mini roses, pearlised butterflies and dainty daisies. I really think that they came out beautifully and look so dainty!

Cupcakes are definately the trend for ‘wedding cakes’ at the moment – a tower of cuppies with a small 10cm diameter cake at the top is definately the way to go. Very little wastage and a good way to incorporate more than one flavour. And who doesn’t love a beautifully decorated cupcake?
