This Moana cake was made for a birthday party. It’s made with 36 cupcakes, 12 each of red velvet, chocolate, and vanilla. The frosting is butter cream and the flowers and leaves are all hand made with butter cream frosting. The lettering is made of strawberry flavored candy melts.
I have been forgetting to take pictures lately so I haven’t been posting anything. I had already packed these to go when I realized I had not taken a picture. These are red Velvet and Key Lime pie cupcakes. I made a small video of how I prepare the graham cracker crumb crust for the key lime pie cupcakes but it would not upload to my blog.
This basket has red velvet and chocolate cupcakes. The toppers on the chocolate cupcakes were made using the Russian piping tips I purchased from Amazon after seeing them on Pinterest and YouTube. The hardest part is getting the frosting to the right consistency. Once that is achieved, the piping isn’t hard at all. I am still working to mastering the different types of flowers.
I have been asked a few times to make some rum cupcakes. Although I am not a fan of boozed up cupcakes, I decided to give them a try. I had some left over coconut cupcakes. I mixed some rum with some powdered sugar to make a glaze. I then took a toothpick and poked holes in the tops of the cupcakes and poured the glaze over the cupcakes. I then made some coconut butter cream frosting and added rum to it. Whala!
This is my interpretation of a fancy flower design. I used the orange and white frosting and was trying to get the white on the ends. I think they look ok but I need to work on the technique a bit more. Please like and or leave comments.
These cupcakes are loaded with carrots. I have been experimenting with different piping tools and mixing colors for frosting cupcakes. I want the cupcakes to look noticeably different although a lot of the cupcakes have cream cheese frosting. I think I will also use a different piping tip for them next time I make them. Previously, I used larger gummy carrot pieces as toppers and I see that these mini candy carrots I used on these cupcakes are much smaller than I expected.
