Summer cupcakes

The summer holidays are here and the sun is shinning. So a little batch of yummy summer cupcakes is what we will enjoy today. I have used royal icing which gives a nice crunchy frosting. It is also, in my opinion, the best frosting to use on warm and sunny days.

Today is also a big day for us, because we are leaving Copenhagen next week, moving into our very first house. The kitchen is much bigger and I will get my own little place, where I can sit with all my cake decoration tools. I cant wait……

Happy Caking!



  1. I like the colors. Very summery and fresh. I think pastel colors never run out of style for any occasion. As much as I would want to serve it during summer, i would also want to have this types of cupcakes on every occasion.

    BTW, Congratulations on your new house.

  2. Thank you all so much for the whishes. Its really wonderful here but those of you with houses and a garden properly know how much time you can spend just weeding. I know that I have spend too much time outside instead of beeing in the kitchen but I am just so happy to finally have a garden. Right now its time for replacing to old windows with new ones and then the walls will need a little fresh up. When my work spot is ready I will make sure to take some photos.

    Ruby A: Royal icing taste sweet of powdered sugar. I keep my RI cupcakes in a airthight box, not the refrigerator.

  3. Best wishes in your new home!
    *What does royal icing sugar taste like? Is it like powdered sugar with milk?
    *Also, if I’m frosting cupcakes, how long will it sit, does it need to be refrigerated?

    Thanks in advance!

  4. These look so cute. Congratulations on the new house. We are building at the moment and I cannot wait until the house is ready so I can bake and cook in my own big kitchen.

  8. Ooooow… your cupcakes are so cute! Especially the little butterflies on top. Did you make them with fondant?

    Congrats with your new house, and the bigger kitchen! Hopefully you’ll bring new recipes with that 😉 ‘Cause if you did beautiful things with a smaller kitchen, I can’t imagine what are you going to do now!

    Good Luck.-

  20. Hej Louise!
    Underbara cupcakes. Du inspirerar alltid!!

    Tänkte fråga dig om vilka butiker i Köpenhamn som har de bästa tårt- och baktillbehören. Vad får jag helt enkelt inte missa när jag åker dit i sommar?

    Lycka till med nya huset! Vore skoj att få se bilder på ditt nya kök…

    Kram Camilla
