What do a work party, a birthday, and a baby shower have in common?
When people order cupcakes for a birthday, I like to jazz them up a bit even if there isn’t technically a theme. I’ve shown you my basic party cupcakes before…
Next, I decided to do a similar theme for a friend’s birthday, but with a twist.
At the party the cake made a tightrope walking friend, and thus the cake was called the tightrope cake.
Normally if someone gave me no theme to work with I would go all out polka dot for a baby shower, luckily this client gave me a theme to work from. From looking at the below picture, I decided to make a cake and matching cupcakes.
All of the designs on the cake were made with buttercream. Yes, I believe things look much cleaner/neater/prettier/perfecter when you use fondant, but honestly I’m not a big fan of it. I just don’t love the chemically marshmallow taste.
The matching cupcakes: cupcake toppers were made with royal icing and simply placed on a frosted cupcake.
Everything all together!
