Work is a great source for orders!! A work colleague was aware that i love baking and she had seen some previous cupcakes i had made for other work colleagues. She is just lovely and asked if i'd like to make some scary cupcakes and cookies for her son's 9th birthday. It really is lovely when people appreciate and like what you do.
It was quite amusing because her son had strict instructions on the design and didn't want anything girly for his female friends. He said that if he has to eat cupcakes with butterflies at their parties then they have to give in and eat boyish cupcakes too. His mum and i were discussing that his opinion will probably change in a year or two :)
I didn't have to do any research for the design of these cupcakes, i was provided with a picture of cupcakes that Riley liked. These were fun to make and a nice change from the very detailed Planet Cake baby cupcakes i have made recently!! Still though, i couldn't have done it without the help of my wonderful apprentice (yes, husband he he)...he did ALL the mummies. I think they look great, definitely my favourite design from the lot.
The cookies were packaged in little cellophane bags and tied with a blue ribbon. What a lovely thought - Riley was going to distribute these to his class mates. The chocolate cupcakes are for the family birthday on the weekend.
Happy birthday Riley!
