Gothic Giant Cupcake

On Saturday I made my first Gothic giant cup cake. It was so much fun to make and decorate.  The cake was made with a vanilla sponge and vanilla butter cream.  I dyed the butter cream dark grey and covered the cake with black glitter.  I also made skulls and eye balls out of sugar paste and drew on the eye balls with edible pen it looked extremely scary.

Burlesque Cakes

OK! so today was a very busy day! I set up my blog this morning which i think is going to be a great experience.  I made special Burlesque Cupcakes for my teacher Colette and the girls and I think they quite enjoyed them after 45 minutes of stretching and dancing! Also I have made an amazing lemon cake which has got to be my most favorite one i have ever tried.  The icing is just mouth watering and the cake extremely soft. I'm feeling very determined at the moment to push my business and make a success of it.  Also more cake orders coming in so keeping me on my toes and  summer holidays has just started! Its gonna be a lot of fun!
