Birthday cupcakes for my nephew

My nephew is turning 8 today and i couldnt resist, i just HAD to make some cupcakes :) There will probably be a cake, but i still had to do my thing!

Looking through flickr you soon to start to realise that most of the boyish cupcakes are about monsters and other scary creatures! It's hard to come by a really nice looking cupcake that suits a boy. But i found some ideas and came up with this:

I don't actually own number cutters in the same format as the alphabet cutters i used so i decided to spell '8'.

The cupcakes are my favourite recipe - the Planet Cake one. I topped the cupcakes with blue buttercream and some handmade toppers. I also made some brownies to take along tonight, at the request of all the kids :)

Happy birthday Jordan!

My first post and order for 2010 !

It was nice to have a break from baking over Christmas, but it was also a lovely surprise when i received a call last week for an order of baby shower cupcakes! The order was for 6 cupcakes and whilst many people don't take orders for such a small amount i just enjoy making cupcakes so much that i don't mind making half a dozen. I'm not a business so i dont have strict rules. I am just so honoured when someone asks me to make something for them. And plus i was just happy to bake after having a little break but it also meant that i wasnt going to spend forever in the kitchen :)

Nadine decided on the Planet Cake baby design for her friend's baby shower - 3 of the normal one's and 3 screaming babies. I was really looking forward to making the screaming babies as i had never made them before, and i love trying new things.

Thanks for your order Nadine, i hope the girls enjoy them.
