Soft pastel blue and pink sugar paste moulded into adorable baby-gros, baby feet, framed baby portraits, tiny cute teddies and rabbits and more were what my students added to their Baby Themed Cupcakes in this fun class at Kelly Jayne’s. They all took home 6 beautifully decorated cupcakes and knowledge gained in this class, working with fondant and moulds.
It was a pleasure working with such a fun and enthusiastic group of students and great to teach again in the Kelly Jayne environment.
Pink happiness must be in the air as this is another post on tickled pink sugar pieces! It is so exciting when I have a new client who loves something they have seen on my website and asks me to recreate it for them. In this case it was these cute Baby Girl Cupcake Toppers that I had made for Baby Shower Cupcakes for a Girl. Shantelle was baking special cupcakes to celebrate the birth of twin girls in her family and was going to add these toppers to her cupcakes. Thank you Shantelle for your enthusiasm and willingness to travel to collect your toppers. I couldn’t resist photographing these tiny pink sugar delights.
Loretta had spotted my Pink Baby Cupcakes in my Cupcake Gallery and asked me to do similar ones for the baby shower celebration she was having for her daughter in Johannesburg. As always these baby girl decorations are loads of dainty fun in the making, but what made this project all the more exciting was having Carmen share the creative hours with me. With a quick lesson in the making of pastel baby feet and tiny pink teddies, Carmen enthusiastically got stuck in to help me. I couldn’t resist adding this picture of Carmen, pleased as punch with her sugar paste work!
From pretty pink toes, Carmen went on to help me with the itsy ditsy white sugar paste baby “footprints” and miniature flowers to pop into the intricately laced frames. I had time to play with the moulding of gorgeous pink baby-gros to which I added dainty stitching detail and heart shaped pockets. With her sugar energy and spirit in full force we finished the morning off making loads of cute buttons to add as accents on these cupcakes. Thanks Carmen for your help and for the great company and laughs along the way, I still had a smile on my face when I baked these cupcakes that week and added our pertly pink proudly made baby decorations. Loretta was delighted when she collected her cupcake order.
