The current pandemic means that people are thinking small yet sweet so cupcakes are a big hit! With the rule of 6 in the U.K. our small boxes cupcakes are so popular. Some opt for extra boxes to leave at loved ones’ doorsteps. It’s a crazy time that we live in right now. It is, however, heart warming to think that people are trying to be kind and treat others. This particular box of blush birthday cakes were for Felicity’s own mum. Obviously she couldn’t be without cake on her special day!
We stuck to our brand colours on these sweet treats with pinks and golds. Each cupcake was finished with quirky sprinkles, edible gold paint and silky buttercream. Flavour-wise the pale pink roses were Strawberry Milkshake and the darker swirled cupcakes with a touch of coral pink were Passion Fruit & Lemon! Perfectly fruity for a fun birthday.
We get asked what colours we used A LOT sooo… for the blush we created a whitened buttercream then added a little Rainbow Dust Pro Gel Food Colour in ‘Strawberry’. To create the darker pink / coral tone buttercream we combined Colour Splash in ‘Coral’ with Rainbow Dust Pro Gel Food Colour in ‘Strawberry’.
Blush birthday cupcakes!
The pretty blush pink birthday cupcakes were in our popular Strawberry Milkshake flavour! Madagascan vanilla cupcakes swirled with super smooth buttercream. Finished with a gilded rose leaves and sprinkles! We used Rainbow Dust’s gold sequin sprinkles to add a touch of glam.
A black edible pink pen by Sugarflair was used to create the cute birthday plaque before adding a glittering edible gold paint streak to one side. This was left aside to set and then carefully nestled on top of a buttercream swirled cupcake. The other zesty Passion Fruit & Lemon cupcakes were then finished with raspberry pieces, shimmering pearl sprinkles and gold rods!
