Once again I was given free sugar rein with this cupcake order. Sarah just said anything pretty for Kayla’s 17th Birthday. These cupcakes had to hold just a tad extra charm as Dom, Sarah’s daughter, her chief baker, is away and couldn’t bake her sister’s cupcakes this year. I have heard Dom bakes and decorates with passion and wild abandon & I knew that she would be making sure I did these cupcakes perfectly for her sister.
I chose shades of coral and went big with bold embossed butterflies that I shimmered with Crystal Candy Diamond Lustre (Starburst) and centred with tiny beads of colour. The flowers I made by first embossing my paste with Crystal Candy Midnight Garden Lace Mould and then cutting out larger and smaller flowers. The centres are adorned with larger pearls in gorgeous contrasting colours. All the butterflies and flowers were added to generous swirls of white chocolate buttercream before their photographic debut!
Have a fantastic celebration tonight Kayla and the best compliment was that the first thing you wanted to do when you saw your cupcakes was to send these photos to your sister!
