A Dude’s Birthday

These were ordered for a guy’s birthday. He’s a Twitter user, so the fact that his ID fitted perfectly on 12 cupcakes made the order ideal!

I baked chocolate cupcakes in black paper cups, and then- after slicing off a little bit of the top to make them flat- I covered them with a thick layer of chocolate fudge icing. Doing one letter at a time, I wrote his Twitter name onto the cupcakes using cream cheese icing.

A Christmas Order

These were ordered by someone who has had lots of my cupcakes, and these are her favourites!

They’re the strawberry cupcakes- the ones with fresh strawberry pulp in them- topped with cream cheese icing, moulded fondant Christmas themed decorations and gold dragees.

They survived a car trip to Durban after being refrigerated overnight, and once there her brothers were doing everything in their power to take them off each other!

Some feedback from Sheena on her order: “I’ve been a long-time fan of Angel’s cupcakes and whenever I can, I indulge! I’ve never tasted a bad cup-cake and in December I decided to show the rest of my family what I was always harping on about by taking a batch down with me to Durban.  The cupcakes survived a 7 hour drive, and my brothers took to betting, bribing and trading each other for cup cakes.  I don’t think they lasted 24 hours with them around.  Strawberry cheesecake flavour is my absolute best, and I say so whenever recommending Angel’s cupcakes to my friends.

Yummy!”

Baby Shower Cupcakes

I baked these for a friend’s baby shower, and took them with me when I went to Cape Town for the party!

To make sure they survived the trip, I baked “plain” chocolate cupcakes in silver cups, and then decorated them with blue and white two-tone butter icing, and moulded fondant baby shower themed decorations.
