The missing cupcakes

Cupcakes

As you all remember I forgot to take photos of the cupcakes that I had made for my brother and SIL wedding reception. I felt so bad about it, so when the kids and I was in the mood for cupcakes yesterday I decorated three of them. ¨

I did the decoration like I had done it for the reception, with some left over gum paste flowers. So here they are…… well these are all chocolate ones as I did three different flavours: White vanilla mud chocolate, dark chocolate mud and banana. They were all decorated like here with a spread of royal icing and decorated with gum paste flowers and sprinkles.

My fist idea was to make some with fondant tops, but the heat that day made me change my mind to make a more safe and non-sticky decoration, as royal icing stays the same when dry even though the banan cupakes are so good with chocolate frosting I went with chocolate royal icing wich is also nice on banana cupcakes.

I made in total around 60 and only three came back :-)

Happy Caking

    Hi Louise! Congratulations for all your creations! I’m Brazilian and here we don’t have a strong culture of confections like these. Our sweets are amazingly delicious in flavor, but they’re not that beauty and delicate… you inspire me! Thank you!

    Hello my dear readers,

    Thnak you all for all the sweet comments that you have left me in the preperation for the weddingcake. Many of you have asked for the strawberry mousse recipe and the cupcake ones I will look into that when school starts again and I have a little more time on my hand and not two kids ;-)

    Mrsstix: blossom Sugar Art stock the metallic cashous but you can get ivory cashous from Completecakedec.com.au

    CakeBreak: What I have heard then if very hot then shortning bc is the only way. My IMBC did act strange when I used it on the weddingcake and it was not a heat compared to Florida. The cakecentral gals or Sharon from sugared Lagniappe know more about this than I do I think. But in Australia where it also is hot they use chocolate ganache store their cakes in A/C rooms but I do not know how they behave when taken out from there.

    Wow, those cupcakes are too cute! I bet everyone just loved them all. I love the designs as well, they are simple but elegant. I see that sometimes less is more :-) I have to remember that, lol. Great work.
