There’s been a spate of birthdays recently, so I’m on cupcake overdrive! Sometimes people ask me to make decorations to order in a certain colour scheme, but often I just make up whatever I fancy or think the recipient will like. At the moment I’m favouring round sugarpaste disks sprinkled with edible glitter, and have been churning them out like a one-woman-glitter-machine! I use them as decorative toppers for letters or numbers – I think they make much more of an impact than just placing the letters or numbers directly on top of piped icing, as they can get a bit lost in the swirls otherwise.
Unfortunately I haven’t had time to photograph them all and the quick snaps I’ve taken are pretty poor, but hey ho. I especially liked the red cupcakes, as they tied in with a little red polka dot heart gift I bought for my lovely line manager at work. (I do love a theme!) The red spot muffin cases came from Lambs Cook Shop in Stamford – they are so sturdy and hold their shape really well. Its a fab little cook shop and well worth a visit if you’re ever in Stamford!
