Crazy Critters







It's not often I get asked to make cupcakes for a 7 year old boy's birthday but I just love it when something like this comes along. The extremely bright and adorable Deakin decided on 'Critter cupcakes' for his 7th birthday gala. Not just any critters mind you, but a precise selection of yummy lolly insects including dragonflies, spiders (of course), butterflies and caterpillars. The cakes themselves were deliciously simple Vanilla Sponge Cupcakes with Red Vanilla Buttercream frosting and Classic Chocolate Cupcakes with Blue Vanilla Buttercream frosting. All were decorated with an assortment of lollies and piped milk chocolate for big 7 year old grins.
