Our Vanilla and White Chocolate Truffle all dressed up for Mother’s Day! It was always a popular option on our macaron menu so we thought we’d offer it up as a cake and cupcake flavour. Swirled with a Madagascan vanilla and Belgian white chocolate buttercream, of course! It’s then drizzled with more Belgian white chocolate, sprinkled with edible sugar pearls and finished with a Vanilla and White Chocolate Truffle macaron and a Belgian white chocolate prism shard! How pretty is that rose gold streaked macaron too!

Here are all the little Mother’s Day beauties boxed up and waiting to be enjoyed! If you’re good then maybe your mum might let you have one? We’d recommend a huge pot of tea (Yorkshire of course) and a coupe of champagne!

The cute rosebud piped cupcake and hexagon messaged topped are both zesty Passion Fruit and Lemon! Definitely a popular choice.

A glittering hexagon with ‘mum’ hand painted in rose gold surrounded with sugar pearls adorn the other!

We recently treat ourselves to a gorgeous bottle of Laurent Perrier rosé champagne. We thought it would be the perfect addition to our fruity raspberry cupcake for a super luxurious treat! Our single rose cupcakes feature a raspberry preserve infused with sparkling Laurent Perrier pink champagne then swirled with raspberry buttercream. Finished with a fondant rose leaf and lovely edible rose gold bees this is such a pretty treat!

Our Magical Christmas Cupcake Collection for 2018!

Festive Christmas cupcakes by Juniper Cakery

2018 has been our busiest year yet. So busy that before we could fully release our festive treats collection we started to get booked up! We are officially sold out for the holiday season, but these pretty Christmas cupcakes were too fabulous to not share, right? There’s pink! Gold! And cute Christmas-y details! What’s not to love?

Fun festive cupcakes by Juniper Cakery

We’d been wanting to whip up a festive bauble macaron for a few Christmases now. Sadly, when the season arrives it zooms past and we hardly get time to sit down. This year we sketched out our cupcake ideas in advance (possibly a little odd when Halloween had not even landed). Blush pink macarons were dressed up as cute tree ornaments with an edible golden loop and fixing.

Raspberry Pink Gin cupcake by Juniper Cakery

The cupcake itself is one for the grown-ups! A Raspberry Pink Gin flavour… a gorgeous pink coloured cupcake (yes, it’s pink inside) filled with fruity raspberry preserve laced with Gordon’s Pink Gin, then swirled with a raspberry gin & tonic buttercream, fun pink sugar strands from Fancy Sprinkles and a Raspberry Pink Gin macaron bauble! Oh la la! Perfect for the party season.

The next wonderfully festive treat in our holiday cupcake collection is our Vanilla & White Chocolate Truffle Snowstorm!

Fluffy Madagascan vanilla cake swirled with creamy vanilla bean and Belgian white chocolate infused buttercream, covered with a flurry of snowy sprinkles and then finished with glittering fondant snowflakes!

NYC Themed Cupcakes!

Cool NYC themed cupcakes by Juniper Cakery

We LOVED these NYC themed cupcakes so much we thought we may as well dedicate an entire blog post to them. How fabulous are they?  They were created for one lucky girl who jetted off to the Big Apple for her birthday. The brief was obviously New York City. So, we scribbled down a few things we thought were NYC staples… shopping, foodfoodfood, coffee, souvenirs, the iconic I<3 NYC t-shirt and bakeries a-plenty and got designing.

Each cupcake decor was perched onto white subway tile embossed fondant. This also helped us keep the colour palette fresh, modern and clean! Colour is a big thing for us. We probably spend way too much time making sure everything matches or makes sense. We decided to add in pops of bubblegum pink with small elements of green as well as cleaner neutrals. Elements of pink come from the cool donut icing, blush NYC shirt, shopping themed cupcake and a tiny little fondant cupcake!

Seriously, let’s get a close up on the donuts. They’re too adorable! The mid-pink ‘glazed’ donut even features a white Belgian chocolate drizzle! We had to make this cupcake loaded with tasty New York breakfast items so we made a pile of sugary donuts with a huge cup of coffee and an even bigger pretzel.

Of course, a good burger is a must right? We created a tiny fondant version complete with pale brown fondant buns, a brown sugar paste beef patty, slices of ‘cheese’, ruffled light green ‘lettuce’ and a good amount of ‘mayo’ (or white Belgian chocolate). We added thinly cut cream fondant as crispy fries and finished the burger with a little NYC diner flag!

Yes, another shot of that cute fondant donut topped cupcake! Just look at the fun sprinkles (the pretty gold pearls are from Fancy Sprinkles). We also used sprinkles to create the salted look to our large fondant pretzel. The cup of coffee, for us, had to be huge as giant cappuccino cups always reminds us of Friends and Central Perk!

Shopping themed cupcake by Juniper Cakery

When it came to the edible shopping bags the famous Bloomingdale’s Big Brown Bag was pretty essential. We added a little colour with a cute pink Kate Spade bag stuffed with tissue paper. We’re such huge fans of Kate Spade’s fun and stylish designs too, plus they encapsulate New York for us! The edible tissue paper scrunched up into the bags are simply thinly rolled and cut sugar paste.

We also created a street sign with the birthday girl’s name hand painted across it, a pretty pink cupcake with a tiny bakery serviette, shiny fondant apple, Statue of Liberty souvenir crown and a large slice of pepperoni pizza. These NYC themed cupcakes were so much fun to make!

Navy and Blush Peony Cake with Gilded Bees!

Navy and blush peony cake by Juniper Cakery

Yay! It was Krystle’s 31st birthday 25 March and she got a cake! We seriously hardly ever get any form of cake to ourselves, which sounds crazy given what we do for a living right? For the past two years, however, we have been so busy that we’ve not had the time to create a birthday cake for Krystle’s big day. This year, however, we managed it. Isn’t it a beauty too? Read on to find out more about our cute little bee studded creation!

Navy and blush peony cake with gilded bees!

This cake didn’t take long to design. A few inspirations behind it included Ralph Lauren‘s classic navy, white and gold colour palette and Alex Monroe‘s stunning nature inspired jewellery. Both of which we happen to own a lot of (uh oh). Krystle has always had an obsession with bees so that was a definite starting point too. Plus, we’ve discussed on and off creating a design that was covered with golden painted bees and bugs disappearing underneath heavy florals. In the end all of the elements for the cake, cupcakes and cookies fell together.

The matching cupcakes were super cute! They’re all Madagascan vanilla cake filled with Sicilian lemon curd and lemon oil infused buttercream. Each one was flat iced with blush or navy blue fondant / sugar paste before the details were added on top! We crafted ‘mini’ pale pink peonies with fluffy stamens and golden pistol centres to attach onto the blue iced cupcakes. The blush covered ones featured lots of small gilded bees!

Note: For adding wire florals into cake Safety Seal is amazing. It coats and seals all inedible items with a food safe wax. Yay! No picks in sight!

The hand-crafted sugar florals on the cake include… pink open peonies, white gardenias, fondant blackberries, blueberries, eucalyptus sprigs, emerald green peony leaves and pale grey berries!

Last but not least, the flavour inside was… Peanut butter Twix! Yup. Our chocolate cake filled with salted caramel sauce, chopped Twix bar pieces and a marbled peanut butter and Belgian milk chocolate buttercream then smothered with a Belgian dark chocolate ganache before being iced.

Our Top 5 Christmas Recipes and Tutorials!

Christmas recipes and tutorials

There’s now just 2 weeks until Christmas everyone. Two weeks. 14 days! Crazy right? It doesn’t feel too long ago that our 100 days countdown began (yes we do that). Anyway, we’ve had some fun festive recipes and tutorials on our blog so we thought we’d create a quick round up of our favourite and most popular ones. We’re not done yet though. Oh no. There are still two more weeks after all… we’ve got a few more little things up our sleeves!

Our top 5 Christmas recipes and tutorials

Learn how to make a gingerbread character form fondant

01: Have a cute Christmas!

Make your own Candyland themed Christmas dessert table with the help of our adorable gingerbread character tutorial! You can create this little cutie to add to buttercream swirled cupcakes, or iced cakes. A few of these would even be great added to a gingerbread house or village. Want to create your own sweet little gingerbread character? Check out our tutorial!

Recipe for homemade vanilla marshmallows by Juniper Cakery

02: Homemade luxury!

Adding a little extra oomph to hot cocoas or seasonal coffees doesn’t have to mean a splash or several of festive liquor. Whip up some homemade vanilla marshmallows with our easy recipe, pile them on top and wait for them to melt a little. It is amazing! You can fancy it up too with whipped cream, sparklers and even edible gold leaf!

Festive fondant reindeer tutorial by Juniper Cakery

03: Make it a-DEER-able!

Invite a few reindeer to the Christmas party! We created one a-deer-able (sorry) tutorial for a little fondant reindeer cupcake or cake topper. We love the golden antlers and of course the finishing touch of the tiny bow and fondant bell! Create eight, nestle them on top of a buttercream cake with a golden picket fence to create Santa’s reindeer enclosure. It’s bound to be an instant hit during the party season!

Recipe for gingerbread cookies

04: Everyone loves a classic!

Of course offering up the traditional gingerbread cookie ever Christmas is going to be a crowd pleaser. We love making them so this year we’ve posted up our go-to gingerbread cookie recipe! We’ve tried lots of different recipes and methods over the years, but this one was by far our favourite. We like our gingerbread fairly dark and with a good amount of spice so it was perfect for us. It’s also one of the best recipes for sturdy gingerbread houses too!

Candy cane twist cookie tutorial by Juniper Cakery

05: Everyone also loves a little twist…

Christmas is definitely cookie season. For anyone who doesn’t whip up trays upon trays of cookies on a regular basis a drawer full of cookie cutters may not exist in their kitchen. With this in mind we thought of putting together a cool recipe and tutorial on candy cane cookies that don’t need a cutter! Check out our Candy Cake Twist Cookie recipe here!
