Cupcakes at Tiffany's

My best friend LOVES Tiffany blue. Her kettle is Tiffany blue, her toaster is Tiffany blue, her wedding cake was Tiffany blue.... you get the picture. I have been planning to create a cupcake in her honour for ages and have seen many Tiffany inspired cupcakes around and thought I'd have a go. I decided on a light and fragrant cupcake to match the elegant theme and created this Vanilla and Rosewater scented Sponge with Vanilla Buttercream frosting decorated with a handmade sugar bow and sugar 'diamonds'. Did I mention my best friend also loves bling? Well, she does!

Ganache and grenache?

This little number was created for one of my favourite customers who regularly challenges me to come up with a new gluten free creation. She's off for a girly weekend and I wanted to create a really sinful, luscious cupcake that would go down nicely with some red wine (sorry to all you wine snobs out there!). I am currently in love with my flourless chocky and hazelnut mud so this is a Flourless Chocolate and Hazelnut Mudcake with Whipped Dark Chocolate Ganache frosting and decorated with a wine coloured handmade sugar flower and sugar pearls. Hmmm.... come to think of it, I could use a nice glass of red!

A whole lot of flourless love

For Clare and Jason's engagement we designed some gorgeous love heart cupcakes to fit in with the pink and silver theme. The couple requested a cake that was luscious and rich but simple enough to please tiny tummies too, so after much discussion we decided on a gorgeous Flourless Chocolate and Hazelnut Mudcake with Vanilla Buttercream frosting decorated with gorgeous embossed pink love hearts and pink sugar sprinkles. These yummy cakes are a real crowd pleaser, big and little kids all love a good chocolate cupcake!

Cherry Blossom Classic Cupcakes

While most of my designs are very decorative and labour intensive, sometimes you may want a simpler style for possibly a children's birthday party or a low key function. In response to this I have designed a range of 'Classic Cupcakes' that impart the joy of a simple Vanilla Buttercake or White Chocolate mudcake frosted with classic Vanilla Buttercream. These cakes are decorated with sugar shapes, flowers and sprinkles and come in a wide variety of colours. These cupcakes are fun, yummy and still made with quality ingredients that Cherry Blossom customers love,like free range eggs and pure Australian butter.
