K1’s 6th birthday cupcakes

15 Mar

These cupcakes were made to take to school (hence not going crazy with the amount of frosting), and they’re made in patty pans rather than cupcake cases, to keep them small.

Used shortening from a cake decorating shop for the frosting (tinted pink, blue, green and yellow), and it came out a bit dry and didn’t tail off well.  Didn’t have time to play around with it – these were made the night before (as usual).

Also as usual, it’s all vanilla, baby.

Wedding cake and cupcakes with cornelli icing

This is the wedding cake and cupcakes I made for my brother’s wedding.  All vanilla cakes with vanilla frosting (made with shortening base); cornelli icing.

Cornelli is so easy, and very forgiving – it’s a good cover up for cracked or uneven fosting.
