Vintage + Cupcakes = Love!

There are two things in this world I love  – 1. Anything Vintage 2. Cupcakes.  So I was super excited to combine these two things together and create this collection of Vintage inspired Cupcakes.  I was given a button mould for Christmas (lucky me!) and couldn’t wait to use it, there is something so satisfying about pushing a tiny piece of sugar paste into the mould and being given in return the cutest little perfectly formed buttons.

I decided to use a colour scheme of blue, pink and yellow adding a touch of Caramel/Ivory Sugarflair to each ball of sugar paste as I mixed the base colour as this adds a beautiful vintage hue.

As I would be using the button mould to create some of my decorations I decided to also include a simple yet delicate quilt like stitching on some of the cupcakes helping bring the theme perfectly together.  Finally each and every single detail on each cupcake was lavishly covered in a shimmering edible pearl dust so that they sparkle elegantly as soon as the light catches them.

I think these cupcakes would suit many a different occasion; Wedding, Baby Shower, Birthday, or even just because you think you deserve a treat…am I right?

Christmas Sugary Fun!

It has been a little while since I had chance to post, and at the moment I am in the middle of lots of projects so there will be loads to come in the next couple of weeks so keep your eyes peeled!

I am in the middle of making a beautiful Chrismas cake, it is currently in that stage of being fed lots of delicious rich spiced rum but this weekend I will be icing and decorating it.  I spent the previous weekend making some of the cutest sugarcraft figures to sit atop the cake…little choir boys singing their hearts out with songs of Christmas cheer.  Here is a little sneak peak…

Only 17 sleeps left until Christmas….

Tretherras Christmas Gift and Craft Fair – 19th November 2011

Saturday was RosyCheeks Bakery’s first ever Christmas Fair!  It seemed only right to include some special limited edition Christmas flavours that are only brought out at this time of year these were:

Christmas Cupcakes – A cupcake filled with Christmas Spices such as warming cinnamon and all spice, as well as sticky raisins, sultanas and dried apricots, topped with a vanilla brandy buttercream and for that extra special festive touch – edible holly berries.

Gingerbread & Caramel Cupcakes – A vanilla and ginger sponge decorated with vanilla buttercream, mini gingerbread men and a swirl of rich toffee caramel sauce.

Simply Snowflake – For the purists! A light moist vanilla sponge topped with a vanilla buttercream and finished with a sparkling edible snowflake.

Chocolate Twinkle Cupcakes – A moist chocolate sponge topped with a gooey chocolate custard and a swirl of chocolate buttercream sprinkled with edible gold stars for that final lavish touch!

As well as the limited edition cupcakes I also served up a choice of double stuffed Oreo Brownies and Chocolate Gooey Brownies.  Doggy treats were also on offer as there should always be a choice for the best friend in our families!
