As I now had my very own handmade owl mould I experimented with different coloured sugar paste owls for different cupcake orders and celebrations. These vibrant coral and yellow owls with their small flower detail I used for a Cupcakes in a Jar order. To tie in the colour theme of the owls I first added a layer of buttercream to the jar and sprinkled yellow and white sugar pearls onto the buttercream before adding the chocolate cupcakes. These I then iced and proudly added the owls to sit comfortable on their buttercream perch.
Hayley loves owls so again it was a great opportunity to use my mould again. I used a bright and pale blue paste for these owls and added painted detail to them. They were an added treat for Hayley at her scrapbooking birthday celebration.
Bright Pink and Blue Owl Cupcakes were the order of the day for my contribution to the Cupcakes4Kids With Cancer Fundraising Day at Fourways Mall. I loved making these cupcakes to be sold in aid of this amazing organisation and was so extremely touched to be presented with a certificate of contribution by Vimala who along with other volunteers puts so much of her time and ethusiasm to this cause. Their facebook page is so worth a visit to see all the young lives to whom these volunteers make a difference.
Wendy celebrated her birthday and as a small gift I made her rich chocolate cupcakes in a jar with Pastel Pink and Blue Owls. Wendy also has a passion for owls and a lovely collection of different owls so these cute decorations were the obvious choice for her cupcakes. I added a set of stamped and hand coloured owl cards to her gifts as card making is another passion of mine, one which I don’t often get time to spend too much time on. It was a pleasure to celebrate Wendy’s birthday and to see her delight in receiving her gifts. Thanks Wendy for your amazing support of and delight in Cupcakes2Delite.
