Wendy asked me to do these cupcakes for her friend’s 50th birthday. She wanted me to include Tracy’s name and the caption ‘on the ‘move’ as well as some 50’s. Her friend Tracy has a passion for travelling and she was about to embark on another adventure after celebrating her 50th birthday. I made some cute sugar paste suitcases by joining two oval pieces of sugar paste together and adding straps and handles to each suitcase. I added an orange letter to each green suitcase and a flower to the 2 yellow suitcases leaving the yellow ones slightly open while they dried. I added a 50 to the cupcakes with the yellow suitcase in the matching lime green and a funky orange blossom with green centre to tie in with the green, yellow and orange colour scheme. Of course no suitcase is complete without a tag on it so the tags were a perfect way to include the ‘on the move’ caption. I made the 3 orange tags and added a yellow sugar paste ribbon and tiny green blossom to each one. The perfect way to photograph these cupcakes was on an old map I had and a few odd coins from my own travels.
