Planet Cake's Bow Cupcakes for my Birthday

When i booked myself into the Planet Cake course i discovered that they had recently released a cake decorating book for beginner's which i was thrilled about! I headed to my local library, borrowed the book and in the mean time dropped hints to my husband about wanting the book for my birthday :)

For my birthday in July I decided to make the pink and black bow cupcakes on the cover of the Planet Cake book - simple, classy and classic. I thoroughly enjoyed working with ganache and fondant and learning lots of tips and tricks from the book. A big thank you to my beautiful husband who helped with the fondant is quite wet and hard to work with, i couldn't have done it without you!

I must add, the Planet Cake cupcake recipe was a hit! The addition of lemon zest and the moisteness of the cupcakes really sets them apart from other recipes.

I'm loving all the fun I'm having with fondant!

And yes, i did receive the Planet Cake book from my very attentive husband :)

  2. Hi

    Thanks for dropping by :) I used half bakels fondant and half 'plastic icing' in black. I mixed them together the night before and also added a bit of black wilton paste to enhance the blackness.

    Hope that helps, have a great day!
