It was so exciting when a cupcake customer from last year called me and gave me my first order of the year for 2012. It could not have been more appropriate as her order was for cupcakes for a baby shower. Last year I made gorgeous “hen” party cupcakes for a client and it was such a compliment when this order came through for baby shower cupcakes for the new-mom-to-be. Wow my cupcakes are becoming a part of different peoples life celebrations and that makes me feel so privileged and excited. It was also great to eventually meet Sue, who ordered the cupcakes, as she was as excited about the delightful blue and white baby boy sugar art decorations as I was.
I made baby prams, baby-gros, babies feet, bottles and rattles using baby blue and white sugar paste. The little sugared balls are now available in nearly every colour you can dream of and I sprinkled a few on to complete the cupcakes.
These little feet just make these cupcakes perfect for a baby shower and I wish the new mom all the joy in the world as she gets to know and love her new baby boy, may she have many happy moments watching and gently kissing his precious toes. May her baby’s feet grow strong and take her little boy on many brilliant adventures in his life!
