Last week, I spent quite a bit of time practicing different cupcake designs in preparation for the Live PME cupcake finals which will be held at the Cake International exhibition on 4th November. I'll be there along with 8 other contestants decorating 13 cupcakes in 2 hours in front of everyone. If you're at the exhibition that day be sure to pop over and say hi.
Here are some of the cupcakes to come out of the kitchen recently....
This week I've been making cakelets (mini cakes). Here's what has come out of the kitchen.....
Candy-striped bow cakelet
Calla lily cakelet
and last but not least - ribbon roses cakelet.
Although mini cakes take a lot longer to make than cupcakes, they are definitely worth the effort, and make beautiful gifts. I'll be making a series of christmas cakelets soon to share with you all. Stay tuned.
