Cupcakes for all occasions
September 18, 2016
There has been a flurry of cupcakes orders received at Hours of Fun over the last few weeks. Cupcakes for Teachers, Olympic parties, Maternity leave, Birthdays and Hen Parties.
First up we have Olympic rings and medals topping a vanilla sponge with vanilla buttercream. Helping to celebrate the end of the Olympics at an office party.
I love buying new cake equipment and tools and these order gave me the perfect excuse to buy a new mould. This mould is full of super cute baby items which I used to top these Vanilla, Red Velvet and Chocolate cupcakes.
Thank you gifts for Teachers at the end of the year can be tricky; you may want to stick to a budget, try to buy them something different or leave it so late it ends up being a last minute panic. Cupcakes are a lovely way to say thank you and come in a box with a handmade tag that the child can write themselves. We can do any flavour and also offer a gluten free cupcakes for anyone with a gluten allergy.
I’ve had a few hen do cake orders however this was the first time I had been asked for rude ones! You know what this meant – time for a new mould!! These were a lot of fun to make and when delivered to the customer’s work place, they caused a big discussion and attracted a lot of attention! The cake toppers were made from fondant and placed on top of chocolate and vanilla cupcakes, some of the toppers were even chocolate flavoured!!
Birthday cupcakes come in all shapes and sizes. These were lemon and vanilla cupcakes with photos printed on to sheets of icing as the toppers. Printing onto edible icing or rice paper is a fabulous way to personalise a cake.
Last up with have bright and colourful daisy cupcakes. A mixture of chocolate and vanilla cupcakes baked in cases decorated with daisies. Two different colours were piped together to create the striking swirl with a fondant daisy placed on top. These were ordered as a leaving gift at work.
Cupcakes are £1.50 each or buy a box of 12 for £15.00 and are perfect for all occasions.
