SPCA Chocolate Banana cupcakes

This order came through Trademe. They asked for 12 cupcakes, and said they didn’t really mind whatever flavour, whatever colour, they just wanted 12 of them.

I was a little surprised to hear, usually people would be a bit more particular about what type of cakes they want! I later found out it is to be used to fund-raise for SPCA, so I went to work!

I decided 12 wasn’t really enough, so ended up making 18 of these, and as I haven’t made banana cakes for a while, I went with chocolate-banana cupcakes and topped with yellow icing, as for a hint of our cute paw friends, I piped some chocolate footprints on them, so cute!

100 Lemon cupcakes for a Christchurch Wedding

A good friend of mine, Koid, was getting married in Christchurch a while ago, and I offered to make these cupcakes for her. She used these cupcakes as favours. The wedding reception was a beautiful Victorian Morning Tea, and the cupcakes were, I thought, fitting for the theme 🙂

The bride’s best friend’s father, who happened to be my husband’s ex-colleague, raved about my lemon cake that I made for his birthday a couple of years ago, that when I asked her what flavour she’d like, she immediately said “That lemon cake you made for Neil!”

She asked for a very simple, white icing with minimal decoration, and with a very gourmet home-made feeling to the packaging, the cupcakes were born!

As the wedding was down in Christchurch, I flew down the day before the wedding and spent a good 11 hours making these cupcakes (all worth it!) brought them to the reception venue the night before where all her friends and families were there helping set up the place, everyone did an amazing job, look at this place!

 

Look, there’s my cupcake sitting next to every set of pretty cups!

Here’s a closer look:

The swirl on the top was a rosette, with a sprinkle of white pearls to finish off. These cupcakes were well received, a happy wedding and a beautiful future to you and your husband, Koid!


Belated Valentine’s Cupcakes

Yes, it happened more than a month ago, but it’s never too late!

Tessa contacted me via my Facebook Fan Page a few days before Valentine’s to ask if I could make 6 cupcakes for her beloved, and delivered.
She wanted 3 of them to look like the love cupcakes I made last year, and the other 3 saying “I love you” respectively.
This sounded like fun! And of course, who can say no to a box of cupcakes 🙂

So off I went, and also I made a little card to go with the delivery.
Let’s just say the boyfriend was stoked and his colleagues were very envious!

Here’s what she said:

Thanks so much Cabnolen, he loved them!!!

They looked amazing and exactly how i wanted them!

Thank you soo much!

Yay 🙂
