Diamond Cupcakes

5 Nov

Last month, my family and I celebrated my Grandparents’ Diamond wedding anniversary. That’s SIXTY years people. SIXTY! To celebrate, we held a tea dance, and I was privileged enough to be asked to bake some surprise cupcakes for the happy couple!

The celebration was really a double one, as I has just gotten engaged about 2 weeks before! So the diamonds were particularly apt!

I made chocolate and vanilla cupcakes, in silver foil cases, and dusted with silver glitter.

Congrats to the happy couple, I just hope my fiancé and I make it that long!

Jubilee Cupcakes

6 Jun

Unless you fell off the face of the earth, you all had a lovely long weekend, thanks to the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. This weekend I managed to fit in a family function, a trip to Ronnie Scott’s, AND a batch of jubilee cupcakes!

For the cupcakes, I went with victoria sponge cupcakes (vanilla filled with jam), and piped on red white and blue buttercream. The white buttercream was marscapone, and the red and blue were my new double cream buttercream (divine!)

So, what did you get up to this weekend?
