I made these for my aunt’s birthday. She’s like my biggest fan, so it only seemed fair to make her something she’d be able to keep. The cupcakes were honey and orange flavoured (and damn that’s a good combination) and I haven’t slept in over 30 hours because I had to stay up to finish them.
Personally, I’m not a fan of care bears. They’re creepy.
Part two of the birthday cupcakes! I’d REALLY wanted to make cupcakes with anti-possession tattoos, too, but I didn’t have the time to try and figure out the logistics of them (well, I spent 2 hours getting frustrated that the fondant wasn’t doing what I wanted it to, and gave up. Same difference though, right?)
I mostly wanted to practice with painting on fondant, as I don’t really get the chance to do it. I’d love to know what you guys think of it! (And yes, my handwriting sucks. It’s one of the many disadvantages of being a Lefty.)
Bobby get’s two cupcakes with catchphrases on because he’s worth it.
So, I remade the TARDIS cupcakes which I made last year. I’m really impressed with my progress, even though I still like the overall look of the cupcakes the first time round.
I guess it’s kind of like when they re-make a classic movie. The revamp is awesome and has better technology to make it look damn cool, but it’s never really going to live up to or surpass the feeling and success of the original.
You know what would be cool? If you added your own thoughts to this. What do you think of the new ones? Which do you prefer? If I were to continue this, and made them AGAIN next year, what could I do to make them the absolute most awesome TARDIS cakes there have ever been? Come on, I’m a drama student, I can take your thoughts on this.
My uncle plays Angry Birds, and my aunt wanted me to do something for his birthday… so… these happened. Not perfectly accurate, but time wasn’t in my favour and teeny details had to be missed.
So thanks to my friend promoting me on his Twitter as a thanks for his cake , the Jessicakes Facebook is currently 8 ‘likes’ away from 300. This is a ridiculously huge milestone for me, and it’s so close.
If any of you have Facebook and don’t currently ‘like’ Jessicakes, then I would REALLY appreciate it if you went over there and did that, to help me get to the other side of 300.
Please and thank you!
I couldn’t sleep, so I made some white chocolate and honey cupcakes. The gold stuff is crushed honeycomb (from the inside of a Crunchie bar… Like I have a supply of actual honeycomb, ha.) mixed with gold lustre dust to make it glittery. Honey doesn’t drizzle very well, it’s too thin. Either way, they taste bloody amazing so I don’t even care.
Also! The cupcake stand! I got that for Christmas. It’s cute, but will probably serve better use for mini cupcakes, or cookies.
I decided I’m going to upload this anyway. A girl a few weeks ago wanted cupcakes for her birthday; bears and a goose. I never uploaded the photo of the goose cupcake, but here it is. D:
(No, the goose isn’t very accurate. His head’s too big and neck’s too short, but I was panicking to finish, so I don’t care.)
Chocolate orange cupcakes, with fondant bears.
You can’t see it from this photo, but these cupcakes are teeny.
I never uploaded this here. I made some red velvet cupcakes (well… a very botched, improvised version) to take to work with me the other day, as I had left over buttercream that NEEDED using.
