Christmas Cupcakes

Last minute cupcakes for a Christmas concert.
Since they were for my lovely niece I just couldn't say no!
The cupcakes were half red velvet and half chocolate with chocolate and vanilla buttercream.
Topped off with sprinkles, gumpaste snowflakes, ornaments, stars, and some edible paint.

Suprise Birthday Cake

So happy to receive a call from the proud owner of the Ferrari cake, to do a suprise birthday cake for his wife, since he wouldn't be here to celebrate with her.
I got to deliver this one personally, and I just loved being part of the surprise.
The cake was lemon with lemon buttercream.
Happy Birthday Sharmini!

Christmas Cupcake Tree

I was so excited when I got a call from a good friend to make a cupcake -'cake' for their family Christmas party.
The cupcakes are an assortment of red velvet, gingerbread, vanilla and chocolate with buttercream icing.
All of the 'ornaments' and 'bows' are made with white chocolate fondant and gumpaste, decorated with edible metallic paint.
And next time I will remember to remove the toothpicks before the photo 'shoot'.

Christmas Cookies

Christmas trees, snowflakes, doves, and leaves with messages for the holidays!
Sugar cookies with a non-traditional Christmas theme all boxed up for their recipients.
What a nice idea for client gifts!

Faking It!

Just for practice and a bit of fun, here's a 'fake cake' (using styrofoam drums)- however its all real fondant icing & fondant roses.
I'm happy with how it turned out- next time I think I'll make it chocolate so I can eat it!
