Helen celebrated her birthday on the 1st May and I made these cupcakes for her to celebrate again with her scrapbooking friends this morning. I had delivered cupcakes for another customer 2 weeks earlier and Helen fell in love with the cream and red decorations on those cappuccino cupcakes. She asked me to do the same cupcakes for her which I did but with a different play on the red and cream flowers. Helen is a very beautiful elegant woman and I wanted the cupcakes to portray a little of her and her personality. I made cream sugarpaste butterflies with a small red blossom accent and then small sugar paste roses and embossed cream flowers with an embossed centre.
I embossed a 5 petal blossom and then made a rolled rose with a mixture of cream and red for a contrasting and different centre.
As all scrapbookers love pattern I added miniature red blossoms to a larger cream blossom and pressed them into the sugar paste, adding a rolled rose for the centre. For the last contrasting flower I pressed a medium red daisy into a larger cream blossom and then added a small cream daisy for added dimension.
I hope you had fun celebrating with all your friends Helen and as usual it was a pleasure to make these cupcakes for you.
