Celebrating her husband’s 40th birthday with a disco theme, Grace requested the following Fruity Indulgence cupcakes  for their party.

I had lots of fun preparing this order and getting into the glittery disco feel!

I was recently in South Africa to celebrate a very special 18th birthday and Matric Ball (Prom). As requested by the birthday girl, I made a red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting. It was a two-tier topsy turvy-esque cake covered in marbled fondant with gold shoes and butterflies. Unfortunately the weather was humid and very hot which made the cake seem to be ‘melting’. It was enjoyed by all though and the birthday girl loved it!

Whenever I visit, I also spend time decorating with my daughter and her friends, showing them a few techniques and letting them have fun with fondant. These were some  of the pretty results of their endeavours!IMG_9704

Besides the giant carrot cake requested, my mum was also treated her favourite nibble of coconut macaroons. IMG_9512

 

This week we’re working on a few very exciting projects, including a 40th disco cupcake party! Stay tuned

One cupcake is just not enough to share, so why not have a mini cake instead?

February, a whole month to celebrate love and to put that extra bit of effort in to show your dearest just how special they are to you.

It’s also a time to let your love interest know that you are waiting in the wings and would do anything for them.

Onwards and upwards to an exciting and fun new year!
