It has been fun to watch over the years how my blog posts are being followed by people all over the world and I have had a few interesting requests including supplying cupcakes for a hotel in London and delivering cupcakes to a wedding in Kensington in the UK. This is a trifle tricky if your are based as I am in Johannesburg, South Africa. There are times, however, that I have been able to help an international client from Australia and London and this order was one of them.
Tendai contacted me from the UK and asked if I could make Succulent Cupcakes for a friend celebrating their birthday in South Africa. It was such an orginal gesture of hers and a fun surprise to do for her friend. As her friend is a bit of a succulent guru and has a garden full of them I made sugar paste succulents as true to nature as I could and popped them on “potted cupcakes” topped with crushed Oreos for soil. I was able to deliver a beautiful tray of cupcakes to an awesome young guy and Tendai you really made his day remembering his passion for succulents and surprising him with this sweet gift!
