A Vintage Valentine's Hen Party

I held a hen party cupcake decorating workshop for 11 lovely ladies a couple of weeks ago. The bride to be is getting married in May but first has the very important task of giving birth to her baby boy in a few weeks! This was the perfect way for her, her family and friends to spend her hen party; a lovely relaxed atmosphere and plenty of tea and cupcakes!

Laura and Michael came to me last year to chat about their wedding cake and they had just received the news that they were expecting a baby, they were so excited and I instantly loved them both. We got onto chatting about Laura's hen party and what she would do when she was 8 months pregnant! So it was perfect for her to book a hen party cupcake class with afternoon tea with me. They were a delightful group of ladies and the afternoon was relaxed and happy.

The fabulous Lucy Stendall popped along to take some photographs of the day and as you can see did a great job capturing the vintage feel of the afternoon and the relaxed atmosphere. Thanks Lucy you are brilliant! if any of you brides to be out there are looking for a photographer then look no further than this talented lady... and she is lovely too!

Lots of luck to you Laura and I am so looking forward to making yours and Michael's wedding cakes in May, a vintage theme of course!

Aubergine Vintage Wedding Cupcakes

I delivered 120 wedding cupcakes with a rich fruit cake top tier this Saturday to Alrewas Hayes in Staffordshire. The venue was lovely!

The cupcakes were a mix of vintage designs in both buttercream and flat sugarpaste icing. The top tier was a rich fruit cake soaked in brandy, iced in ivory with an aubergine flower corsage.

Congratulations Lisa and Anthony, I hope you had a wonderful wedding day!

The Beatles cupcakes

I was asked to create just one cupcake for a surprise to someones husband to be at their wedding this Saturday... he loves The Beatles!

I thought I would also make 4 cupcakes for my brother Phill's birthday tomorrow and post them to him as a surprise, as he is a massive fan also!

So here they are..

The stencils were made by hand and then I used black gel colour to paint the hair and mustaches, very time consuming and precise but they look quite good and very distinctively the fab four!
