It was cupcakes galore on Friday and a fabulous day was had by all! There was a complete mix of students, from total beginners making their first forays into the world of cake decorating to experienced students with City and Guilds cake decorating qualifications. However as you can see below everyone produced a fantastic array of decorated cupcakes. Perfect for baby showers.
In Australia these are also known as Patty Cakes and in England we also know them as fairy cakes.

I have always preferred to decorate my cupcakes with sugarpaste, so for this class, as we find many students have already dabbled with buttercream toppings, I concentrated completely on sugarcraft techniques that I like to use on my own cupcakes.
Initially everyone created decorations using simple cutters and a ball tool and then we moved on to using a range of other interesting and useful techniques including moulds and embossers.
I love workshops as often I too can experiment with colours, designs and ideas whilst I demonstrate. I am particularly pleased with how the two embossers on the front cupcake turned out. I used set 15 wedding embossers and one of the Patchwork Crowns elements. I hope they inspire you to also be creative.
