The Secret Garden Cupcakes

I was recently invited to a friends house for a tupperware party & wanted to take along something special for her & her guests, so knowing that there would be mainly ladies there I choose to create something very pretty & feminine.  They would also be wonderful for a wedding, for mothers day or a thank you.

These gorgeous floral cupcakes were inspired by the fact that spring is not too far away now. I decided on a secret garden theme featuring all manner of flowers in various colours including roses, carnations, frangipanis, lilies & daisies as well as some leaves, vines, bright butterflies & little tiny ladybugs.

The cake for these cupcakes was my 'Luscious Lemon Zing' which as the name suggests has quite a zingy lemon flavour, I paired this with a subtle lemon & vanilla Swiss meringue buttercream frosting. Followed by light sprinkle of green sugar crystals.

The beautifully delicate flowers, leaves, vines & animals that topped each cupcake I created using sugarpaste & were finished with accents & highlights using edible petal & lustre dusts, cachous & sugar pearls.

Some of the flowers were very time consuming to make especially the carnations but definitely worth it I'm sure you would agree.

These cupcakes would make the ultimate gift to cheer someone special up as they would receive both cupcakes & flowers (completely edible ones too), it doesn't get better then that!
