Christmas Giftboxes 2010

This year we offered two different designs of Christmas 6-pack giftboxes available for pre-order for Christmas: our reindeers/trees pack (which was available in either pink or aqua) and our red & silver pack decorated with stars and holly.

Both included 3 x vanilla cupcakes and 3 x chocolate cupcakes.

I'm sure there were a lot of happy sweet tooths who received these as gifts this festive season!

Christmas Tree & Present Cupcakes

These chocolate mini cupcakes ordered for a Christmas party were topped with christmas trees and presents and sprinkled with silver edible glitter.

Christmas Metallic Embossed Cupcakes

Cupcakes ordered for a Christmas party - chocolate (with gold embossed christmas trees), caramel mud (with silver embossed stars) and raspberry & white chocolate (with gold embossed gingerbread men shapes), all sprinkled with gold and silver edible glitter to add more sparkle.

Glamorous Bow Cupcakes

These regular-sized vanilla cupcakes were ordered for a lady's 40th birthday celebrations. They were decorated in mint-green buttercream and topped with a handmade fondant bow*.

This cupcake tower was created for a purple themed wedding - cookies & cream cupcakes (with upright hearts stamped with the couple's initials), raspberry & white chocolate cupcakes (with royal purple embossed fondant and silver & ivory hearts) and musk cupcakes (with frilly frosting and embossed hearts). The cutting cake was a fondant covered strawberry cake which was topped with fresh flowers.

Blossoms & Embossing Wedding Cupcakes

A selection of the cupcake tower created for a black & white themed wedding. The flavours included vanilla and chocolate cupcakes baked in black cupcake wrappers topped with embossed white fondant and topped with a black blossom, and a chocolate cutting cake covered in fondant.

Fitzy's 'Colour of Change' Breast Cancer Fundraiser

During October we were proud to collaborate with Fitzy's On Church to provide take-home gifts for the guests at their inaugural Colour of Change Breast Cancer Luncheon to raise funds for the Toowoomba Breast Screen Clinic. Cupcake flavours included (from left to right) raspberry & white chocolate, vanilla and chocolate all decorated in a spring theme in pink, yellow and orange. By all reports the luncheon was a huge success and raised many much-needed funds!
