Coffee-a-holic


These cupcakes were designed for a friend of mine having a 30th birthday who is even more of a coffee fiend than I am, which is saying something! I've been sinking espressos since I was 15 and am still finding it hard to shake the habit. She wanted something coffee flavoured but still light and moist for dessert to cap off her cocktail style birthday 'do'. Many coffee flavoured cakes are artificial tasting and cloying so instead we went for 'White Chocolate and Walnut Cupcakes frosted with a light Coffee Buttercream and decorated with handmade sugar flowers, pearls and sprinkles'. These were a scrumptious end to an elegant and fun birthday function.
