Cup Cakes

On Thursday at WI craft club we had a go at decorating cup cakes which is something I've never done before and loved it!  It's a shame I have no one to bake for these days because I'd love to do more.

My efforts all together

First thing we did was a very simple, basic buttercream swirl

Next came a buttercream rose

Then we got to play with sugar paste :)
First of all we learnt how to put a plain circle of it on top, these were put aside for a while while we did something else and then we came back to them and used a stencil.
This is my favourite one

While our plain cakes were set aside we did another circle only this time we used a texture board 

Next came making a rose, cutting out leaves and using edible glue
We were also let loose with the glitter so everything got some :)

Then we played with a mould and I did a Hydrangea.
With this one we also learnt how to paint the centre's using the same powder as the stencil one above

And we had a little time left over so we got to play with other little moulds so I added the butterfly and little square to my buttercream ones and the brooch to the bubbles but it looks more like a sun to me

A great selection of decorated tops. They almost look too good to eat. I say almost as it's hard to resist a cupcake :)
