This giant cupcake was made for a young girl turning 21. They wanted something very girlie and pretty. So I made it pink and purple lots of glitter and flowers. Love to know what you think of my giant cupcake Thanks for reading Hannah's Buns blog :)
I made this make up bag for a young girls birthday cake. She didn't want it pink or too girlie. The cake is a Vanilla sponge with strawberry jam. I made the make up out of sugar paste and rolled fondant. Hope you like the cake.

clients to celebrate the Queens Jubilee.Lyndsey has the most wonderful little beauty salon I have ever been to.

made were vanilla sponge with Vanilla butter cream the easiest way to introduce
you to these delicious cakes.There are
so many flavours you can incorporate with these cakes.I have had a lot of fun coming up with some
new combinations for example chocolate and peanut butter and raspberry and
marshmallow fluff work well together.I
have included a recipe for the vanilla whoopie pies for you to have a go, good
luck and happy baking.
115g Soft unsalted butter
200g Caster sugar
1 Large egg
1 half tsp Vanilla Extract
1 tsp Bicarbonate of soda
Half tsp Baking powder
275g Plain flour
200g Unsalted butter
400g Sifted Icing sugar
1 tbsp Vanilla extract
·Preheat the oven to 180’C and
grease a large baking tray with butter and flour.
·Sift together the flour, baking
powder and bicarbonate of soda and set aside.
·In a separate bowl, cream the
butter and sugar together using an electric whisk until light and fluffy.
·Add the egg and vanilla and mix
well until combined.
·Fold in half the flour and mix, and
then add half the buttermilk and mix.
·Repeat with remaining ingredients.
·Use a piping bag to pipe little
round moulds about 3cm round onto the baking trays. (make sure you space them
out as they do spread when baking)
·Bake for around 10 to 12 minutes.
·Allow to cool for 5 minutes on the
tray then place on a cooling rack.
·To make your butter cream beat the
butter with an electric whisk.
·Slowly add your sifted icing sugar
and vanilla. (You can add a little milk if the butter cream is too hard)
·Then you pipe on one side of the
whoopie pie and sandwich with another.
There are so many designs you can do on the whoopie pies you can leave
them plain, Pipe butter cream on top or cover them with rolled fondant.Take a look at my face book page for some
These cupcakes are so great and I think I'm aloud to say that i am very proud of them. They took me most of the day to make but I was so happy with how they turned out. I made gold crowns out of sugar paste using a heart shaped cutter I then made a sausage with the sugar paste and wrapped it around the heart. I then cut the bottom of the heart with a knife and made a rectangle shape and stuck it to the bottom of the heart. Once they had gone hard I made some royal icing and piped some dots on the crowns once the icing was dry I painted them with edible gold paint and that's just the crowns! They do take a lot of time to make and are really for something special like the Queens Jubilee I hope you enjoy the pictures and have a great Jubilee weekend :)
