More birthday cupcakes!

This week is a busy week for birthdays! My sister in law, brother in law and two work colleagues! I nominated myself (again!) to look after a birthday morning tea for Stef. My team mates are such lovely people who i get along with very well, so i am more than happy to make something special for their birthday.

The cupcakes are vanilla with white chocolate ganache, yum! I used an embossing mat to create the lovely pattern on the base and topped these with fondant flowers using different sized daisy cutters. Very simple, but pretty.

Happy birthday Stef, i hope you have a lovely day!

Cupcakes for a colleague's 50th

A work colleague turned 50 on the weekend and a few team mates have planned a simple morning tea for Tuesday to celebrate. I put my hand up and was also nominated to make cupcakes :)

I have a bunch of cupcake pictures saved from the internet which i use for inspiration, but going through them i realised that they are mostly all girly cupcakes! It's actually quite difficult to come up with a manly looking cupcake. But i did have one design which i liked, so i used that and changed the colour scheme.

The cupcakes are vanilla with white chocolate buttercream. I havent baked cupcakes since halloween so I was looking forward to tonight! On Thursday another work colleague is celebrating her birthday so i get to bake and decorate again on Wednesday night :)
