Christmas Cupcake Selection 2009

A selection of Christmas cupcakes ordered for Christmas parties and as gifts, all decorated in the colour palette chosen for this Christmas of aqua, brown and silver. The flavours included raspberry & white chocolate (with silver/aqua holly and silver edible glitter), gingerbread (with aqua vanilla buttercream and handmade gingerbread boy decorations), white rocky road (drizzled with aqua and brown), caramel mud (with aqua Christmas tree cutout and silver glitter) and chocolate (with silver lustred presents). Wishing all my customers a merry & sweet festive season and a safe new year!

Christmas Cutie Cupcakes

These Christmas cuties were ordered especially for the children (and the kids at heart I'm sure!) at a Christmas celebration . The flavours included vanilla (snowmen), chocolate (reindeer) and gingerbread (gingerbread boys).

Yellow & White Dessert Buffet Table

For something a little different to my usual orders, a dessert table was created for a 21st birthday with an all-white theme. The yellow accents were added to the various sweets to match the birthday girl's cocktail dress for the occasion. The buffet included a raspberry & white chocolate cutting cake (covered in white fondant over ganache), vanilla mini cupcakes (with yellow frilly frosting and fondant blossoms), meringues, caramel truffles, passionfruit lamingtons, choc-vanilla mini cupcakes (with yellow striped disc decoration) and vanilla bean sugar cookies (piped with royal icing accents). The backdrop to the display was an assortment of yellow & white lolly jars including banana lollies, jelly beans & chocolate baubles, marshmallows, sherbet lemons and milk bottles. From all reports the dessert display provided an impressive showstopper centrepiece for the party!

Dusty Pink 70th Birthday Cupcakes

Large raspberry & white chocolate and chocolate cupcakes decorated with dusty pink to match the invitations for a 70th birthday party. The cupcakes were adorned with handmade discs piped with 70s and mini fondant flowers, with the raspberry cupcakes also featuring a dusting of edible silver glitter for extra sparkle.
