Here are some more cupcakes I did for my husband’s work.  This month I made three new kinds.  The first was a lemon cupcake with lemon icing and a gumpaste daisy.  The second was a vanilla cupcake with peanut butter filling, chocolate icing and half of a pb cup stuck in the top.  And finally the last was a chocolate cupcake with a marshmallow filling and ganache on top with a design to replicate some other cupcake out there 😉

Hibiscus Flower

Posted by on Jul 15, 2009 in Gumpaste Figures & Flowers, My Cakes

I recently got a new veining set for making hibiscus flowers from gumpaste.  I’m so excited about these and the veiner worked so well.  Really makes it turn out great.  Not that they still aren’t time consuming.  Each of these flowers probably took a good 10-15 minutes as each part of it is hand made – even the tiny dots and pistol.  I made 4 total flowers and 8 centers – I’ll get to finishing those some other time 🙂  But here is my first try at a real hibiscus…

Honduras Cake

This cake was a S&S creation for my sister’s (the other “S” in S&S) church for an auction to raise money for a missions trip to Honduras.  The butterfly (as noted in my previous post) is an evenus coronata butterfly from Honduras and the flower on this cake is a hibiscus-like flower found there as well.

We kept this clean and simple ~ gumpaste flower and perched butterfly, fondant covered cake and ribbon around the base with a simple bow on front.  I love the how the colors came out together!  And I hope that the cake gets a high bid at the auction to raise them a lot of money.

My first 2 Tier cake…

Posted by on May 21, 2007 in Birthday, My Cakes, Wedding & Bridal

I had a little bit of issues with the fondant but got the rest pretty good. Kind of just kept adding stuff until it looked “done” 🙂 The cake is covered in fondant and decorated with buttercream. The flowers are royal icing petunias.
