I hope everyone had a great Easter weekend! I definitely had a busy one. I made 72 cupcakes and a 3 layer cake for a variety of things. I am not going to say much in this post. Just a few pictures and I promise that there will be a little crafty post next week.
The first set of cupcakes I did were for a bridal celebration. I cannot wait to go to Newfoundland for that wedding!
My mum and I (mostly my mum – she’s the jewelry maker) worked hard on the cupcake toppers.
I learned a few new icing techniques from this video here. I had an easier time with the blue than the pink.
You can see that the blue turned out way better! To be fair, I was fighting a mean migraine (I’m prone to almost daily migraines) while I was icing.
And then I made gelatin bubbles (not edible) to make these cupcakes for a twin boy baby shower.
The bubbles were surprisingly easy to make! I also added some cute little baby blocks to the other cupcakes.
It was an overall enjoyable experience. I have to learn better consistency though with colour and icing thickness. That will come in time I am sure. The cupcakes were delicious, I promise!
The next day I used the remainder of my chocolate cake batter to make a 3 layer Swiss Chocolate cake. I surrounded it with Kit Kats and topped it with a bunch of M & M’s. I’m sure you’ve seen these cakes before.
So there we go. I wrote a little more than I thought I would. As my techniques get better and my experience gets broader, I will post more pictures of my lovely cupcake and cake decorating.
