Gaby celebrated her 18th birthday yesterday with family and friends and as she has the most gorgeously warm and sunny personality and just because yellow happens to be her favourite colour, I made an array of Yellow Flower Cupcakes for her. Ceire mentioned that she loves sunflowers so I added a couple of 2 toned sunflowers with chocolatey brown centres and then I made sugar paste ruffled flowers in shades of valencia, sunflower and mimosa. The final flowers were the 5-petaled flowers. I made these with daisy embossed flower paste in the same shades and added mixed pastel non-pareils and then bright yellow embossed centres. To seal the deal on the yellow theme for the day I made passion fruit and white chocolate cupcakes and added a creamy swirl of pale yellow buttercream before adding the bright yellow array of flowers.
To our beautiful Gaby, it has been so great watching you grow all these years into the beautiful young woman you are today. May your sunny disposition take you into many more hearts and wonderful memories as you start on a new adventure in your life.
