Vintage Chic Cupcakes

Here are some of the cupcakes I have been making this week for some lovely clients. I was really pleased to get an order for vintage-inspired creations as I love making roses and adorning cupcakes with lots of sugarpaste decorations. These cupcakes were filled with lemon curd and had a thin layer of lemon buttercream on top before the sugarpaste covering and decorations were added. I used royal icing to pipe some dots and stripes to add a bit more texture to the cakes.

And here are the cupcakes together on my new chandelier cake stand from the US.  I just love this cake took a few months to arrive in the UK, but for anyone who is interested in purchasing one, you can find them on Amazon here.

Hope you are all having a lovely week.

Happy baking xx


  1. Very cute! Love the cakestand!

  2. How do you get the edges so good? I end up with buttercream squirting out the side!

  3. Thanks Tessa!

    V, perhaps you are using too much buttercream? You only need a thin layer to give the sugarpaste something to adhere to. You can also use a thin layer of jam :)
