Here’s a not-so-recent project I did for a little one’s birthday!
The cake was red velvet with cream cheese buttercream (one of my personal faves!), and all decorations were done using fondant. My favourite parts are his little cheeks….and his little nose…and his tiny tie…and his mini socks….and his teeny little shoes…okay, I admit it: I am very indecisive!!
In other news, school is finally wrapping up (FOR GOOD!!!) and I’m looking forward to upcoming baking projects, and some new recipe posts! Stay tuned, mes amis!
In honor of the new Cinderella movie hitting theatres next week, here’s a quick look at a set of fondant cupcake toppers made for a Cinderella themed birthday party last year. Better late than never, right?
Cinderella was one of my favourite Disney cartoons growing up. I had quite a few sick days in my early years, and this flick was always the first to hit the VCR! (Until I got older and graduated to Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, of course!)I may not have had a Princess Party in my childhood, but if I did, I think young Megan would have enjoyed both the look and the taste of these cupcakes!
I don’t want to lead anyone on, so allow me to cut to the chase: I realize it is now March 14th, which means that St. Patrick’s Day is a mere 3 days away. I also realize that this is the perfect opportunity to post some sham-rockin’ green goodies, but the long and short of it is, I just don’t have enough time these days to bake the things that I would like to!
The good news is, I have been negligent (as always) with my posting, so I do have loads of recent projects that you may not have seen yet (unless you have started following me on Instagram), which I will try and publish in the next month or so!
Now that you aren’t expecting leprechaun cupcakes, you’re in luck because I am about to make you green with envy over this charming cake! It really is the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow! (sorry, it was all there, I just had to).
I just celebrated my birthday last month (woohoo!), and I wanted to make something delicious and beautiful that wouldn’t take up a lot of my time. The result: this 4 layer lemon cake with lemon curd filling and vanilla buttercream scalloped around the exterior.
If you wish to create this technique but are not sure how, you can view my (brief) tutorial on one of last year’s posts here.
That’s it! Have a wonderful St. Patrick’s Day weekend!
