Beach Themed cupcakes

So if Friday's cupcakes weren't enough we had another order from Nerine for an event on Saturday evening. This time it was for 7 doz cupcakes and the theme was to be a beach theme.

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.
