We started by making gum paste sea shells as toppers and dusted them with corals, pinks, orange and white shades of edible dusting powders and added a little glitter here and there. We topped all the cupcakes with a teal blue butter cream to give the hint of the Caribbean sea then sprinkled a little golden brown sugar for a sand effect.
There were 2 doz red velvet
2 doz vanilla
2 doz strawberry flavoured
and 1 doz chocolate
I received a nice text message from Nerine thanking us and telling me the event went well and the cupcakes were a huge hit. She ordered more than she needed and so the children at church the next day got a little treat which they enjoyed very much.
