I love baking cupcakes. It is so fun to decorate and it really allows me to get creative. Cupcakes are appropriate for many occasions too. I spot it at weddings, birthday parties and even at corporate events. It is also almost mess-free as I do not have to wash the cake tin as thorough, as compared to baking a whole cake.
Here’s how my cupcake designs vary from the year 2006 till now. I hope to give you bakers some inspiration.
A single mini-chocolate cupcake, lightly dusted with icing sugar. The recipe book behind is one of my favourite baking books.
Double chocolate cupcakes with chocolate fudge. A real delightful overdose of chocolate. These were baked for my church friends.
Mini-peanut butter cupcakes with chocolate fudge. This is one of my personal favourites.
My friends Calin and Elaine came over to my place for a baking session one day and we got really creative. It was a lot of fun. We used pink icing with marshmallows and chocolate chips. We made faces, flowers and somewhere in that photo lies an old man.
These chocolate cupcakes with colourful beaded sugars were for a Director friend on his big night at an SMU play.
This garden-themed birthday cake was for my friend’s birthday party. Calin, Elaine and I had crazy fun decorating this cake. It took us more than half a day. There were flowers, soil, grass, bees, butterflies, clouds, the sky and a rainbow found in this cupcake creation.
I hope to bake more soon, probably after Chinese New Year.
