I have been very busy with cupcake orders recently. We've had valentines day which I thought was busy but then Mothers day came and I found myself having to make 92 cupcakes and a two tier Birthday cake over a weekend.
Here are just a couple of the Mothers day cakes I made
Both of these where Lemon flavour cupcakes with the bottom set decorated with hand made Lillies. These were my first attempt at flowers like this and I definitely want to get better and develop a wider range.
As i said earlier I also made a two tier Birthday cake over Mothers day weekend too. This was for my friend Alex. Last year I made her the pink princess birthday cake topped with feathers that can be seen in this post
and this year I wanted to make something even bigger and better. My friend is renowned for loving anything leopard print as well as anything with a bit of sparkle so I came up with this :
To get the leopard effect I used icing sheets round the side and a disc cut for the top and then I covered the joins on the top with piped icing. The sheets gave a really great effect and were easy enough to work with.
The lettering around the cake reads "Happy Birthday Lady Alex" as me and a friend also bought her a Lady ship title as a gift (hehe) Any way she loved it and didn't even want to cut the leopard print tier at first.
Lastly today I have been getting ready this week for another busy cupcake making weekend with lots of Easter orders to be made. This week I have been practicing some designs ready and I think these ones are really cute:
Any way that's all for today, no recipe this time but lots of pictures that I hope will inspire you.
Bye for now
