Giant cupcake farewell

Our close friend Lisa and repeat client fell in love with the giant cupcake we posted recently on our blog. Lisa's friend and boss Laurie will be leaving her current position and starting fresh in a new position so Laurie's staff and colleagues decided to arrange a little farewell party for her tomorrow and what better way is there to say Thank You and Best Wishes than a giant cupcake.  Being spring and just before Easter we decided to make this cupcake with a spring colour theme which certainly gives it a cheerful & fun look despite the sadness that Laurie's staff and friends feel in seeing her leave.

The flavour chosen, in keeping with the spring theme, is a lemon cake filled with a refreshing lemon curd. The base is covered in a terracotta coloured fondant again to resemble a pot of flowers. The top is covered in butter cream with emerald cake sprinkles and topped with fondant daisies and silver dragees.

Since a giant cupcake doesn't offer too many servings Lisa requested 40 regular sized cupcakes. The 40 cupcakes are red velvet with cream cheese frosting each topped with it's own fondant daisy.

Along with her staff and friends
We wish Laurie all the best in her new position.
