This post is short and sweet, well, everything here at RosyCheeks Bakery is sweet but you get the drift…
More Personalised Birthday Cupcakes to brighten your start to the weekend!
You may remember me mentioning I was working on a very special cake that remained top secret to ensure the Birthday Girl did not find out – well that cake has now been revealed (and devoured) so I can finally showcase the Secret Garden Cake. The cake was for a 60th birthday celebration and I wanted to make it extra special as Caroline deserves only the best!
Caroline has an absolutely beautiful garden which blossoms with lots of bright colours and really lets you know when Spring has arrived and Summer is on its way. With it being an April birthday a Spring Garden themed cake seemed entirely appropriate but I wanted the cake to have that overgrown, enchanted feel about it. The birdhouse was suspended on the cake using a wooden skewer and then the edible vines entwined their way up on to it finished with beautiful little pink flowers and a carefully piped number 60. The characters; A Snail, Caterpillar and happy little ladybirds are happily sitting amongst the green buttercream grass and the terracotta plant pots are overspilling with bright spring blooms.
The cake itself was a very rich dark chocolate cake (by rich I mean 12 eggs and over 600g of dark chocolate!) filled with a gooey chocolate fudge buttercream.
There are a lot of photographs of this cake because there are so many details I want you all to see! Enjoy…
Easter is a time of indulgence with lots of foods involving the word chocolate, in fact, who am I kidding? not so much lots of foods but more lots of chocolate!
These Easter cupcakes are a little something different – a simple vanilla sponge that is light and delicious with a vanilla buttercream coloured and piped to look like grass, then finished with chocolate mini eggs (tradition is tradition) and beautiful little spring flowers.
Happy Easter Everyone enjoy the long weekend Claire x
It’s been a while since I have had a chance to post – what with my day job and the numerous cake orders its been crazy hectic busy! Now it is the Easter Hols and I have time to breath I am going to catch up with a bit of blogging.
This blog post is dedictated to some personalised birthday cupcakes for a young lady called Bronte who loves making cakes almost as much as she does eating them! Her lovely mum ordered a dozen cakes with me and asked for them to be girlie and pink…and we all know that is a Rosy Cheeks speciality!
The cakes are a mixture of chocolate and vanilla all filled with a gooey rich toffee caramel centre which oozes out as you bite in…
No sooner had this order come in – another two popped up as well so I am afraid my blog is going to be a little cupcake orientated for the next couple of posts! However there is a very special birthday cake I have been working on over the past couple of weeks I will be posting up soon…I just have to wait as the recipient reads the blog so its all a little hush hush!
