I am finally back at work – it’s taking me a while to build up to full speed! It’s not so easy, what with having kids around in the summer holidays, but as of yesterday I need to change up a gear, as I have two weddings this weekend, amongst other orders.
These chocolate and strawberry cupcakes were made yesterday for someone’s 18th birthday celebration at Alton Towers, so they had to travel quite a way. Hope they made it in one piece!
The chocolate cakes were decorated with various chocolate sprinkles – chocolate spaghetti, white chocolate stars, chocolate balls and chocolate chunks (all for a chocolate fiend!).
The photos aren’t as clear as they could be. My husband left the camera on some funny setting, which I didn’t notice, as I am very much a point, press and hope for the best type of photographer!
I left the hulls on the strawberries on these cakes, as the local strawberries are so juicy, I thought the juice might run all over the cakes on their way to Alton Towers.
I think these strawberry cupcakes looked especially good yesterday. The local strawberries are still going strong, which is good news, as I have 140+ of these little beauties to make for a christening next Sunday…
However, they will be disappearing from the specials page on the website shortly, as it’s time for some autumn flavours – I’m thinking ginger, cinnamon, pumpkin etc for September and October… the ginger cupcakes are sitting on my dining table as I write, waiting to be photographed. No-one is allowed to touch them, until decent photos are bagged – you can imagine two boys hovering around them, wondering just when is their Dad going to photograph them!
