Pink, white and grey baby-themed cupcakes.
This is one of my favourite colour schemes, and for this baby shower I did
vanilla cupcakes with a fudge secret centre, and topped them with a pink and white two-tone
vanilla butter icing swirl, and little ready-made sugar paste decorations.
These red velvet and vanilla marble cupcakes were topped with brightly-coloured,
handmade, sugar paste cupcake toppers – sugar paste domes with decorations,
completely covering the butter icing – little
teapots, toadstools, pocket watches, hearts, and top hats.
I also made several separate sugar pieces and cupcakes for this
Alice in Wonderland bridal shower – Mad Hatter top hats, a slightly crazy-looking mouse
that was to sit in a teacup, white rabbits in waistcoats diving down rabbit holes,
and Alice’s legs in the air with her petticoats billowing!
The cupcakes were Oreo (an Oreo in the bottom of a chocolate cupcake with
dark chocolate covered butter icing), and refreshingly lemony G&T cupcakes!
These sugar pieces were made to go on an Alice in Wonderland-themed cake (baked by someoneelse).
A bottle with a “drink me” label, a Cheshire cat smile, colourful toadstools,
and the white rabbit’s pocket watch.
There were three white roses too, painted in a few places with red “paint”.
I was especially pleased with the pocket watch!
Ages and ages ago, I saw a cake artist’s tutorial where she used
isomalt to make a “glass” face on a pocket watch
and I have been dying to try it myself and I finally had the chance!
