My cute little baby grew into a naughty gorgeous 18 year-old before I knew what had happened! Myf had her birthday party on Saturday and I wanted to do some special cupcakes.
She decided she didn’t want a traditional style of birthday cake ( I was so hoping she would still want me to make her a ladybug or a ballerina, like the good-old-days *wistful sigh*) Now she’s all grown up she decided that cupcakes were the way to go.
The cakes are all vanilla sponge with chocolate buttercream.
The rose decorations are gorgeous wafer roses from a special friend in Singapore – I love her for sending them to me – so, so pretty 🙂
I had some chocolate transfer sheets that I used to make the chocolate shape decorations for the other cakes. I bought quite a selection of transfers in different patterns and colours from a lady in the US. The result is so spectacular, and they are very easy to use.
The cakes at the front are decorated using crumbled sugared violets and roses + candy pebbles.
Miffy looked radiant and beautiful on her special night. It was a lovely party, something very special to remember.
I was wishing I had a cupcake stand to display them on at the party. I might invest in one if I see a decent priced version around. I have seen the stands used for wedding cupcakes and the effect is quite lovely.
Well, I hope I don’t leave it too long until I post again. I’ve got plenty of things to show and tell you when we catch-up again 😉
