This week I have been creating beach themed decorations for a cupcake order for 42 cakes for two little girl's birthday party. I really enjoyed this order, the fun colours and getting to be a little creative. The starfish were made by using a normal star cutter, then squishing and squeezing the fondant until it resembled a starfish shape, then adding the finer details like the dimples and lines. It was also a great chance to make some more frangipani, and use my new flower cutters. I tweaked my butter cream recipe and the result was a beautiful creamy icing that tasted just like vanilla ice cream - and the appearance of the little vanilla seeds made it look like sand. I was really happy with how they turned out, and I am enjoying one of the leftovers now with my coffee..... yummy!!!
