Lace & Rose Cupcakes

 

Lace & Rose Cupcakes

Happy Birthday Tracy and so pleased you enjoyed these cupcakes with your family.  I know how you love fondant iced cupcakes, so I made half your cupcakes with fondant domes decorated with the always beautiful Crystal Candy Lace. The Valentina Lace Mould  was a perfectly elegant choice for these cupcakes. I completed the gift box with six buttercream swirled cupcakes with rolled roses and tiny pearls.

Pink Roses & Midnight Garden Lace Cake

Pink Rose & Wilo-the-Wisp Lace Cake

The beautiful peaceful gardens and Italian ambiance of Casalinga were the setting for the surprise 70th Birthday Lunch for Brenda last week and this pretty Pink Roses and Midnight Garden Lace Chocolate Cake looked so pretty on the table against the backdrop of greenery twinkling in the South African sunshine.  Brenda met my mom in hospital over 48 years ago.  My mom had just given birth to me and Brenda was about to give birth to her beautiful daughter, Robyn. They became life long friends and as my mom couldn’t be there for Brenda last week, it was so special for my dad and myself to be there with Brenda, her family and friends for her special celebration.  Thanks to Tracey, Tom and Robyn; Brenda enjoyed a special lunch in a beautiful setting.

I made pretty pink sugar paste roses and added  Midnight Garden Crystal Candy Lace to a chocolate ganached cake. I used the same mat to emboss the pink board around the cake and finished off with a woven pink ribbon.

Happy 70th Birthday Brenda!

Thanks Gail for trusting me with this order of sugar paste Mother of Pearl Roses. Somehow making roses is always great sugar therapy and I loved making these last week. Thanks Pat of CakesbyPat for having the patience to teach me how to make roses last year, learning from you definitely gave me the confidence to enjoy making sugar paste roses for customers.
