There's a pear in there




Okay, pardon the silly title but I'm the mother of a one year old and you do start to go a bit mad with all of the Playschool! These lovelies are scrumptious Pear and Buttered Pecan Cupcakes with Maple Buttercream Frosting decorated with handmade petunias and sugar crystals. They were deliciously buttery but light and fruity. These were for a morning tea do that our local hairdresser held for their clients and went down perfectly with a yummy cup of tea (or even a festive morning champagne!)

Cupcakes fit for a princess










These cupcakes designed for Kate's christening and 1st birthday were made to fit the pale pink and lavender theme. We created a gorgeous 5 tier tower of Gluten Free Coconut Cupcakes with Lavender Vanilla Buttercream topped with handmade sugar butterflies and silver cachous and White Chocolate Mud Cupcakes with Pale Pink Vanilla Buttercream topped with handmade sugar daisies and silver cachous. We also added some mini cupcakes to the top of the tower for the kiddies and just because they're so darned cute!

Rubber Ducky you're the ONE!




To celebrate my little boy's first birthday we went all out with the rubber ducky theme. Rubber ducky invites, rubber ducky balloons and of course, RUBBER DUCKY CUPCAKES! These were Coconut Cloud Cupcakes with Vanilla Buttercream frosting. Sadly, or not so sadly, by the time I remembered to take the photo most of the 36 cupcakes were gone!
