Vintage Iced-Coffee Cupcakes

Vintage Iced Coffee Cupcakes

In Good Company http://www.ingoodcompany.co.za/ opened their new store in Parkhurst, Johannesburg and I took time off baking to visit this new delightful treasure trove of a shop.  I came home with my goodie bag of treasure into which had found its way a pack of vintage cupcake cases (Cake cases for tempting treats).  At the time I fell in love with these cases but wasn’t sure where or when I would use them.  The perfect opportunity came when Michelle asked me to do birthday cupcakes for her friend Pat. Knowing both Michelle and Pat, both ardent scrapbookers, I knew that these beautiful cases would delight them both.

The cupcakes I baked were iced coffee flavour.  I added a cup of Woolworths Iced-Coffee to my vanilla mixture for a different flavour and then added espresso powder to the icing for a rich coffee flavour and colour.  The sugar paste roses I made from a dusty pink sugar paste and I finished them with a dusting of Rolkem’s Cerise Sparkles. They complemented the cupcake cases perfectly nestled in the coffee icing and the cream sugar pearls add to the vintage appeal of these cupcakes.
