A new bunch of roses, a new batch of cupcakes... this time with pink and gold glitter. I've been baking up a storm recently, I had picked up an array of sprinkles in my local Dealz store and thought I'd bake some more pretty cupcakes for me and mine to enjoy. I really loved the edible golden glitter and there was so much of it in the tiny tub it comes in so there's lots more left for future bakes too. I made this batch red velvet again and used swirled vanilla and chocolate fudge icing on them all this time. They're not as perfect as they should be as my piping bag split - why does this always happen to me - but they were yummy nonetheless!
The stars and the hearts sprinkles were my favourite, the hearts being perfect for Valentine's Day. I really need to stop making so many sweet treats though, we'll all end up with diabetes! To be honest I enjoy decorating the cupcakes more than eating them these days. I try and make them as pretty as I can and with all the cool things you can get these days for cake decorating it's not hard to come up with creative and beautiful designs that everyone says "wow" too and thinks they're a shame to eat - luckily they still do otherwise I'd be left with a whole load of cupcakes! I have my eye on some blue edible glitter and may make some more cupcakes for my sons 2nd birthday next week but we'll see...
You can see my Valentine's Day cupcakes here if you're looking for some baking inspiration for the day of love. I actually think this batch is perfect for Valentine's Day too.
Have you done any baking recently? What do you decorate your cakes with?
