These are a delightful and delicious treat for a baby shower. The cupcakes are red velvet, Key Lime and strawberry. I made the fins by melting vanilla wafers and putting it into a mermaid fin mold. I used edible color spray and glitter to add additional colors.
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.
If you like nuts and Red velvet cake then you will enjoy the taste of these moist red velvet cupcakes. The added red sprinkles give a nice balance of sweetness to the cream cheese frosting and salt from the pecans.
