Personalised Birthday Cupcakes

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!

A 21st Birthday Cake to Remember…

Sisters are one of those things in life that can one minute drive you crazy and the next fill you with love (trust me I have three of them!).  Well I am pretty sure that when the sister of this birthday girl got in touch to ask me to make her sister a surprise birthday cake for her 21st it was all about the love…

Sometimes when your making someone a cake they give you complete creative freedom except maybe a colour theme or a favourite flower and this was one of those occasions the only word I was given was pink…and we all know I can happily work with that!  The other request was that the birthday wishes were to read ‘Happy 21st Ickle Pickle’ something I am sure is an inside joke that only sisters can have!

I chose to keep to two shades; a deep hot pink and a baby pink complemented playfully by the gentle soft green used in the leaves, swirls and lettering.  I added tiny sugar pearls to the cake for that added touch of girlie glamour. And finally a few tiny butterflies gently landing on the flowers collecting sweet sugar nectar.  Creating sugarcraft flowers this way and in this quantity may seem like a nightmare job for most but for me, somehow I get a sense of tranquility and peace as I work and this transcends into the cakes I create, or, at least I hope it does.

This cake was genuinely beautiful, each individual flower sparkled as the light hit the petals; roses, petunia’s and hydrangea’s.  Perfect for a weekend when the Spring sunshine is high in the sky.

The final picture? The two sisters at the moment the birthday girl received her surprise cakey goodness; I mean that’s what Rosy Cheeks is all about; Love & Cake…and of course a sprinkle of glamour!
