This week has passed by in a flurry of cupcake activity! At the beginning of the week I made several batches of cupcakes for colleagues at work and then a batch for Lesley, my auntie, who wanted a dozen cakes using a red, white and green theme. I'm really happy at the way the snowflakes have turned out - particularly when they were misted with edible pearlescent spray. Courtesy of the spray, the snowflakes took on a glittering, frosty quality faster than you could say "Winter Wonderland!"
For the red, white and green Christmas cupcakes, I couldn't resist blitzing up a candy cane with my hand blender to create candy cane rubble to sprinkle over the top of the blankets of vanilla butter cream. I also found amazing edible glitter sprinkles which were in the shape of shiny, tiny green fir trees.
