I’m a woman possessed! I simply can’t stop decorating cupcakes! After a going to a fab class last week I decided to branch out on my own and make up some of my own designs. I used a lemon cake recipe which could have used some more lemony-ness if I’m honest but for once I wasn’t too concerned about taste; I was going for aesthetics!
What do you think? Of course there was going to be a Pokemon reference. The cakes are domed with royal icing and then designed on a whim 🙂 My favourite has got to be Pikachu but maybe the PacMan scene might come in a close second? They are so therapeutic to make, although I did have a wicked-sore back on Saturday evening, having been hunched over the dining room table all day. Who needs fresh air when you can roll around in buttercream? Am I right?
I feel like looking at these cupcakes, you may think I’m slightly unhinged… There is method in my madness! I wanted to try as many designs as I could fit into a batch of cakes so I demanded that Ian fire ideas at me. Let’s just say he’s not the most creative person… For an hour he just kept shouting ‘LEMON’ at me – hence the cupcake with the fondant lemon 🙂 We work pretty well like that 😉
