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 have a confession to make: I actually made these cupcakes last summer. Why, you ask, am I only showing them to you now? This set of photos has been one of the most daunting folders on my desktop, for ages…I haven’t known where to start! However, with one midterm under my belt as of today, I am happy to announce that my schedule just freed up a little bit, and I was able to check this post off of my To-Do list once and for all!
I was approached last summer with a request for some gluten free cupcakes for a Dr. Seuss themed baby shower. More specifically, the theme was specific to the One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish book, with an adorable New Fish baby shower twist!
The design was left up to me, so after checking out this book thanks to youtube (I confess, I had never read it before) I created this set using fondant, a paint brush, and black gel food colour.
The best part about making these cupcakes, was the painting step! They literally came to life before my eyes, much like the pages of a well-loved Dr. Seuss book! The only downside of this order was duplicating 3 dozen of them!
Hi, my name is Megan and I’m an alcohol-themed-cake-aholic.
Okay, so I am not actually addicted to making alcohol bottle-inspired cakes; I have only made 3 so far, and in my defense, all of these cakes have been orders…I promise! But I will admit that I really really REALLY love making them.
My friend asked me to make a Jack Daniel’s Gentleman Jack whiskey cake for her boyfriend’s going away party last week, as he moved away to Vietnam on Friday. She’s going to be joining him in September but it still hasn’t hit me yet, so I’ll have to deal with that when the time comes! (JT, if you ever read this: DON’T LEAVE ME, HOMIE!)
This cake was a dark chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream icing and the labels were hand painted using food colouring. (My apologies if the writing is not straight or proportionate, but I may or may not have worked on these at 2 in the morning while watching the Olympics…I think that was the first and last time that I was actually awake to experience live coverage!)
Can’t wait to see what kind of booze I’ll get to create next time!
