Buttercream Bakery: My Week In Cupcakes

I am as we speak enjoying a very rare and very wonderful weekend off.  I do have a little work to be getting on with but for the moment I am fully embracing in my lazy Sunday.

There has, as usual been all sorts going on at the bakery, these Morris Minor XL Cupcakes where made for a Morris Minor enthusiasts birthday.  The birthday boy owns a burgundy Morris Minor named Miriam.

If you follow me on twitter you will know that I had a little crisis of confidence where these little cars were concerned.  I really needed another pair of eyes and I can't thank my lovely twitter friends enough for all their much needed feedback and lovely comments.  Stupidly after all that worrying and doubting I quite like the cars now and my client loved them.

Miriam the Morris Minor

All the cars are made out of a single piece of gum paste, I shape them using my fingers and a damp paintbrush to create the grooves and contours. 

I have been happily drowning in a sea of delicious chocolate all week.

The cupcakes are of course chocolate, with milk and dark chocolate striped buttercream, chocolate curls and white chocolate buttons.


Loads of sprinkles have been flying around as per usual.

Yummy lemon drizzle cupcakes with lemon buttercream.

I also made these adorable mini Chocolate and Vanilla cupcakes for wedding favours, each one was to be placed in a gorgeous little hand crafted box.

I used chocolate curls and giant white chocolate buttons to decorate.

I hope all the guests loved their little cupcake.
