I didn’t take part as a wedding planner, but I dropped off 6 dozen cupcakes of all kinds for the attendees to taste test!
There were coffee flavoured cupcakes with mini koeksister secret centres, chocolate cupcakes with strawberry secret centres. There were strawberry cupcakes, vanilla cupcakes with creme-caramel secret centres and red velvet cupcakes. I did vanilla butter icing, cream cheese icing and chocolate butter icing. And I used all sorts of different decorations including fondant flowers, fresh raspberries and cherries.
I’m hoping the brides and wedding planners who are taking part in the speed-date-a-wedding-planner day will all be future customers!
He’s dinosaur mad and his mommy asked if we could do his cupcakes with dinosaurs on as well! They’re vanilla cupcakes with vanilla butter icing coloured bright green to look like grass. The dinosaurs are made of fondant.
I did these gawjiss little things for a friend’s little boy, who was turning one. At the time he loved all things marine, so she asked for “under the sea” themed cupcakes to fit the party theme.
The animals were made with coloured fondant (aka pettinice), and they took me a good week or so to finish. The cakes were vanilla, and the icing was a plain butter icing coloured with blue and white. I then piped it onto the cakes in a two-tone pattern to look like water!
