A friend of mine did not know what to get her Hubby for his birthday. I always have that problem as well. I never know what to get for men; ties, socks and boxers are so boring! :)
So she decided to get him some custom designed cupcakes. It would be original and unique. She instructed me to do one of her family, which consisted of herself, her Hubby and a cute daughter and son; the perfect family unit! She wanted the colour theme to be purple.
Since I had another order on the same day, we decided to do simpler 2D faces, instead of whole 3D figurines. I believe that most times, simpler is better and in this case it was true, as the cuppies turned out wonderfully well.
The cupcakes are chocolate cake with a bittersweet chocolate ganache topping. All the decorations are made of fondant.
I absolutely love food and I adore all things beautiful! So what else could possibly surpass gorgeously decorated cakes, cookies, pastries and such? They're beautiful, and even better, they're edible! Therefore, I have decided to teach myself baking and cake decorating and I shall document my attempts on this, my humble blog. Wish me luck!
