John celebrated his 50th in gold and navy style and Janita ordered these cupcakes for his special day. Simple but fun 50’s and gold pearls specially coloured to match the cupcake holders were quick and easy to do for this celebration.
Janita’s thank you on Monday morning: “Lisa, thank you for John’s lovely and tasty cupcakes. And the photos!”
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.
God definitely had a sense of humour on the 15th August in both the years that Shaunagh and I were born in. He created two marvelous women and then sent us forth into the same scrapbooking group of friends. I was sent to ply these wonderful women with many a cake and cupcake and tasty morsels for them to sample and throw their carefully planned diets into disarray. As for Shaunagh, she was sent to delight us with her naughty Irish wit and charm for which we are really grateful. So many laughs and smiles, Shaunagh, inspired these Bright Daisy Cupcakes for you. I chose your favourite sunny yellow for the daisies and added purple bobble centres to complete your favourite colour combination. Wishing you another year of wonderful laughter and colourful celebrations.
Yesterday I posted my pretty Cream & Gold Cupcakes I made for Tracy’s birthday so it is perfect to follow that post with these cupcakes I made for Angela’s birthday. I used the same Crystal Candy fun flower choc art discs and embossed white sugar paste circles. Using a bright warm yellow and pastel peach edible colourings, I painted in the details of the embossed disc and added rolled sugarpaste centres to the embossed daisies. I let these discs dry overnight before popping them on to a few of the lime flavoured cupcakes. The remaining cupcakes were decorated each with a trio of pastel peach and cream rolled roses. Happy Birthday Angela and once again always a pleasure to experiment with some new and beautiful cupcake ideas for you!
My domestic helper celebrated her birthday on Valentine’s Day and as a small thank you I made these pretty Coral Rose Cupcakes for her. Not only does Bakie keep my home clean for my family but she also helps wash endless baking bowls and cupcake trays and shows her approval with every batch of decorated cupcakes that she sees leave my kitchen. Bakie loves colour and has her every outfit co-ordinated to the nth degree and this coral and white combination was perfect for her to celebrate her birthday. I learned an invaluable lesson from you Bakie as you received our simple gifts with such joy and humility and then repeatedly told me the next day how happy you had been with your gifts and cupcakes. Thank you for everything you do for my family we love your humble and quiet ways!
I couldn’t resist these tiny sugar paste ladybirds from Jodees for cupcakes I made for Paige’s birthday celebration with her friends. Small elegant ladybirds were perfect for a petite young lady. Hope you had fun Paige!
I photographed these cupcakes on my new tea-towel from Gina, thanks Gina for the cool birthday gifts!
