Hello beauties! With it being the start of the weekend I just had to tease you all with pictures of cakes and better yet it's cakes that I made so after all my hard work I get to enjoy these sweet treats, hopefully this post will inspire some of you to get creative in the kitchen this weekend too! I've wanted to bake a cupcake in a teacup for a long time now, don't ask, I saw it in a baking book and when I get my mind set on something I just have to do it. I wasn't able to get my hands on any vintage inspired teacups but whilst out shopping yesterday I spotted these silicone teacup molds complete with saucers and I just had to get them. My lemon drizzle cupcakes baked really well in these and I love how sweet they look when baked. I wanted these to look like frothy cappuccinos - coffee rather than tea, so I was very generous with my vanilla frosting and sprinkles. I added some silver pearls too just to add to the overall decoration of the cupcakes. These are most definitely a sweet treat, it's really a shame to eat them but hey, it has to be done!
These teacups and saucers will be perfect for when I'm having a little get together with the girls and want to make something sweet for us all to enjoy. They're the perfect accessory for any tea party - a cupcake in a teacup, I think they're so twee! These are a great alternative for people like me who don't drink hot drinks, cake is a much sweeter option. I got four cups and saucers for €5 in my local discount store, what a bargain!
Stay pretty people!
