Message in a cupcake? C-mail!

How nice is it to have a pretty cupcake given to you any day? That would put a smile on my face anytime! :)

But how great would it be if your lovely little cupcake was also holding a secret message especially for you?  You've heard of message in a bottle - well here's message in a cupcake!

 Here's the little cupcake topper - ordinary looking, you say.  But when you turn it around ....

....a hidden message awaits!  Pull it out of it's holder and what have you got......

Isn't that sweet?

Or how about...

Or even...

What would yours say? :)

Hearts and roses

I made another batch of cupcakes this week and decided to play around with the fondant and buttercream.  I guess, with decorating cupcakes, the ideas are endless but here are three of the cupcakes I did with two different types of roses and a heart.  :)

I love hydrangeas and I saw this idea on how to pipe them onto cupcakes from Glorious Treats.  It is very easy to do.  All you need is a Wilton 2D tip and two colours of icing.  (I went with teal and violet.)  When filling the icing bag, put each colour down side by side in the bag.  (As in, each colour takes up half the bag down to the tip.  I will remember to take photos next time!)  Squeeze the icing bag until you see a mixture of the two colours coming out of it.  Then pipe star shapes around the edge of the cupcake and work your way towards the centre.  Fun and easy to do!  And they look pretty too!
