Mother’s Day is coming up (March 31st in the UK so don’t panic if you’re overseas)! Here’s our sweet collection for 2019. Pretty and indulgent little cupcakes with a gorgeous burgundy, blush and rose gold colour palette. We’ve added cute bee-inspired elements with glittering rose gold bees, rose swirls, a shimmering hexagon, prism honeycomb-inspired Belgian white chocolate shards and piped rosebuds. £10 per box of 6 cupcakes, To book (available via local-pick up only) get in contact!
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!
Mother’s Day cupcakes!
Of course here’s an aerial shot… we love those! Flavours? Raspberry and Laurent Perrier rosé champagne, Passion Fruit and Lemon, Vanilla and White Chocolate Truffle! The cute rosebud piped cupcake and hexagon messaged topped are both zesty Passion Fruit and Lemon! Definitely a popular choice. Filled with tangy lemon curd and piped with a fragrant passion fruit infused buttercream. One features adorable little rosebuds and light olive green rose leaves. 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!
With Valentine’s Day around the corner you’re going to want to get making some pretty romantic treats. Rose swirled cupcakes and even meringues are popular options so we thought we’d share how we pipe our’s! If you’re a shot by shot learner then we’ve included a few frames from our videos in this post. However, if you love watching video tutorials then we’ve created this how-to for YouTube and even IGTV on Instagram! Check out our buttercream rose cupcakes tutorial below!
Ateco 855 tip or any closed star tip with 5 star points (the Ateco 845 is also good)
Once you’ve filled up a piping bag fitted with an Ateco 855 tip it’s time to start! Begin in the very centre of your cupcake (this applies both if you’ve cored and filled your cupcake or not). Pipe a ‘blob’ and then keeping the pressure and speed even continue around the ‘blob’ covering the cupcake surface.
Note: You don’t need to swirl or work your way around the cupcake multiple times… in fact this would end up making your rose look less like a rose!
Tip: It may take a few tries (especially of you’re a beginner) to get the speed and pressure just right. Pipe too slow and you’ll end up with a shaky and over ruffled rose. Pipe to fast and your rose will look stretched and not as full.
You can finish the end of your swirl with a lovely fondant leaf, however, it’s totally up to you! You can add sprinkles to cover up the end, use candy, chocolate truffles, or fondant bees and butterflies! If you like you can even leave the end of your piping just as it is.
Yay! Happy piping! Swirling cupcakes can be pretty addictive. You can also use this tutorial to pipe mini meringue rosettes just like our pavlova recipe here. Go for smaller closed star tips to pipe florals on cookies or macarons with a stiff consistency too!
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?
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.
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.
Gorgeous and glam Christmas cupcakes!
The next wonderfully festive treat in our holiday cupcake collection is our Vanilla & White Chocolate Truffle Snowstorm! This has been such a popular flavour for macarons all year we thought we’d add it to our cake & cupcake menu! Obviously it made it’s debut for Christmas! 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!
Finally, let’s introduce our Salted Caramel Stardust cupcake. It’s the perfect cupcake for a Christmas wish! It is a soft Belgian chocolate cake filled with our home made salted caramel sauce. We then swirl each with Madagascan vanilla and salted caramel buttercream before adding a pretty edible shooting star!
Thank you to all the lovely people who got their orders in for these glam little festive cupcakes! We are absolutely booked to the ceiling with these gorgeous treats. Happy holidays everyone!
