the latest…

The top picture is from some cupcakes I made a few weeks ago. I planned to make a rose for each cupcake, but I just got exhausted from all the work. The bottom picture is a rough draft of a fucshia peony I’m making for one of my best friends.

mini cakes

Why make one big cake when you can make several miniature cakes in different ways…

These aren’t perfect, but they’re a good start. I used varying sizes of cookie cutters to cut the cake and layered each piece with buttercream frosting. A good tip I learned that was very helpful is to bake the actual cake the night before and refrigerate. This helps prevent crumbs. I can’t even imagine the mess I would’ve caused if I didn’t start the night before.
