I've had a terrible day, in fact I've had a terrible week, nothing major has happened but a hundred little things have conspired to grind me down. Defiantly I've powered on, determined to find a silver lining to the big black cloud that has taken position overhead but I'm finding it hard to get my mojo back.
That being said, even on the darkest of days there are glorious cupcakes to be made and this always brings a smile to my face. This beautiful wee Unicorn is a brand new Buttercream Bakery design and he really did brighten an otherwise rather gloomy day. I love the little wings and the two-tone pink, My Little Pony style mane.
The little pony was actually made at the request of a very sweet young man but I love it so much I'm going to add it to a Princess Party Package I'm working on and make it a regular Buttercream Bakery character.
In other news, I'm working really hard on some new recipes for the Buttercream Bakery book and have had some great success with a rather tricky chocolate chip cookie cupcake, which I have just managed to make taste exactly like a choc chip cookie and I really do mean exactly, it is a bit magical. It still needs some tweaking to improve the rise slightly etc. but I'm pretty excited about it.
I was planning to do fondant elephants for my next tutorial but I'm tempted to do this little pony instead. The elephant is super simple but pony is a little more complicated, maybe I should do a vote!
