“Just living is not enough”, said the butterfly. “One must have sunshine, freedom and a little flower.” – Hans Christian Anderson. This quote perfectly describes the theme that Jess chose for her 21st birthday celebration. Her party was held in a beautiful garden setting with picnic blankets and baskets set out for her guests. To delight these guests even further Jess chose a flower garden theme for her dessert table. Gorgeous iced flower biscuits and cake pops complemented these cupcakes I made for Jess. Her colour scheme for this pretty garden of desserts was green, white, pink and yellow which meant that I had a wonderful colour palette for sugar paste roses, flowers and butterflies. To portray the sunshine on these garden cupcakes I dusted some of the roses and butterflies with a translucent shimmer dust allowing the light to kiss the surfaces of these decorations.
Julia had her 15th birthday party in a delightful Christmas garden setting on Friday night. I made these cupcakes a little different and jazzy to suit her personality. I cut out flowers using 3 different size cutters of the same shape flower. I embossed all the flowers with a spiral embossing sheet just for some added funky texture and then placed a smaller flower onto a larger one completing them with a centre of pearl beads and a sparkle of glitter.
I iced the chocolate cupcakes with a lime green icing to match the green of some of the flowers and pearls and the vanilla I iced with a white vanilla icing so there was a contrast of colours in the cupcake display. Congratulations Julia and thank you for trusting me to do these cupcakes for your party.
