‘Fantastical’ Bug Cupcakes

Cute Bug Cupcakes

I am not sure if this post is about keeping it all in the cupcake family or keeping the family in cupcakes, as Michelle trusted me with yet another order for a family celebration. This time it was Cute Bug Cupcakes or as Michelle nicknamed them, ‘Fantastical’ Bug Cupcakes for her granddaughter’s first birthday party. Ava is as cute as a button and deserved to be surprised with her fantasy sugar paste butterflies, ladybugs, dragonflies, worms and bees all in soft shades of pastel pink, blue, yellow and green.

As usual, I was so touched by Michelle’s thank you message to me….

“Ava couldn’t stop squealing with delight when she saw her ‘fantastical’ bug birthday cupcakes . . . one very happy tiny customer! Once again a huge thank you from our family for adding the ‘sparkle’ to yet another of our gatherings. No celebration would be the same without your creative talent setting the theme and adding just the right amount of whimsy. A flutter of butterfly thank you kisses from all of us.”

Two ‘bees in a pod’ below resting sweetly on their fantasy leaves, cute pink and yellow butterflies with their embossed wings and cheeky snails completed this array of baby insects for Ava’s cupcakes.

“I just wanted to thank you for making the most incredible cupcakes for Ava’s first birthday. You really are phenomenal and they added ‘sparkle’ to a very special day! Thanks again, love Candy and Ava”

Giraffes and Parrots for Cupcakes

Cuteness with more than a dash of naughtiness and loads of character are the only way to describe these little Sugar Paste Parrots and Giraffes, an order from Wayne. These tropical coloured cheeky characters were such fun to create and I am so chuffed they found a soft perch on fluffy iced cupcakes.

Giraffes in all their tall elegant beauty are my favourite land animals as they grace the African planes with their serene nature and of course always have a view second to none. These Sugar Paste Giraffes I created with a slight twist to their natural elegance, as each one had its own sugar character. The dudes and dudettes with toothbrushes were a tongue in cheek acknowledgement to the recipient of the cupcake gift as he is a dentist. The cheeky dude giraffes are nonchalantly chewing on sugar branches while some of the more demure dudettes flutter their eyelashes at all their admirers. Thanks Wayne for throwing another fun challenge but totally fun cupcake topper order my way!
