I was so happy to do these!
Chocolate and pink, was the spec.
So I went with the chocolate malt again, as they’re just alarmingly nice, and strawberry cupcakes sprayed with the pink sparkly spray.
I would like to spray my life in the pink sparkly edible spray.
And Celebration candles.
A friend kindly asked me to do cakes for her fortieth, so I had my first attempts at fondant icing, with help from Youtube (GREAT resource).
The cake came out wobblier than I’d hoped, mostly due to oven trouble, hence lateness. But an overall good impression.
Sadly, a small niece poked it, I was told, so it didn’t make the big night :(
My baking at Christmas went a bit weird this year. I had great intentions for beautifully wrapped home baked presents, but it didn’t come together. I made LOADS of chocolate cookies, that kept going wrong, and I ate most of them myself :(
However, I was very happy with these. Chai latte and spice cupcakes, with white chocolate frosting, and topped with sprinkles and silver balls and Christmas spice cookies. They were so good!
How gorgeous are these? I think there needs to be a new word for the drooling over cakes and cupcakes I do online. It’s like cake porn, but not as messy as that expression implies!
Seriosy, check out the malted milk ball one – the one on the page that leads into the cakes has light and dark malt balls on top, and it’s so beautiful! These are my kind of cakes! Now I just need to practise some more.
