A Cupcake Birthday Party

Sebolelo ordered cupcakes from me earlier last week for her daughter to take to school for her 12th birthday.

On the weekend, she had a birthday party with family and friends and Sebolelo really wanted her to be able to have a cupcake party. Since my weekend was fully booked already I couldn’t host the party for her, but I supplied piping bags with butter icing in them, sprinkles, flowers, sugar paste teddies and a box of 6 cupcakes for each child!

Sebolelo also ordered a red velvet cake, chocolate hi-hat cupcakes, red velvet and vanilla marble cupcakes and vanilla cupcakes with creme caramel secret centres!

red velvet cake, cream cheese icing, purple sugarpaste flowers and pearls

chocolate hi-hat cupcakes, purple marshmallow icing covered in chocolate

vanilla cupcakes, creme caramel secret centres, purple and white vanilla butter icing

red velvet and vanilla marble cupcakes, cream cheese icing

cupcake party boxes all packed for each child

*the window boxes are available on special request and will cost an extra R20 per order of 12 cupcakes

Chocolate! Chocolate! Chocolate!

Jonathan celebrated his birthday and decided to spoil his colleagues with cake and cupcakes! Don’t you wish you were one of his colleagues!?

He ordered a monster chocolate cake like this one and an assortment of cupcakes.

Chocolate cupcakes with chocolate butter icing and  hi-hat cupcakes- towers of marshmallow icing covered in dark chocolate!

My Dad’s Birthday Cake

We celebrated my daddy darling’s birthday this weekend past and I told him I’d bake a chocolate cake for him.
This is it! A four layer chocolate cake! One layer sandwiched with strawberry jam, one with caramel and one with chocolate cream cheese icing! The whole cake was then covered with chocolate butter icing and I topped it with a dark chocolate ganache and a ring of glace cherries!
Seriously decadent and incredibly rich- but we finished it! We had this monster chocolate cake as dessert after our birthday braai!

Pineapple Upside-Down Cake “Beater Test”

When I put this up as a beta-testing option a while ago, nobody opted for it so my hubby said that he would be happy to test it for me! I decided that since today is our first anniversary I would bake it for him and for our guests.

Its delicious. Its moist. Its rich. It is recommended that it be eaten warm so I am very curious to see what it will taste like tomorrow!
