50th Birthday Vintage Cupcakes

Thursday, 21 June 2012

These cupcakes were made for my sisters friend's aunt, I used Bitter Lemon and Lime Sugarflare colouring for the domed tops, and just a touch of Ruby for the decorations. Chocolate flavoured cupcakes were requested, so I used a Devils Food Cake recipe, which you can find a version of here. A simple vanilla buttercream was used to decorate some of the cupcakes also, this consisted of 500g icing sugar, 250g unsalted butter and a tsp vanilla extract, simple simple simple! I've yet to gain any feedback from the cupcakes but I hope they went down well!
I'd like to thank Chris from Baked Clouds for helping me so much with the photography! 

I picked up the idea for the design of these cupcakes at work. We had a week of Boutique, Vintage and Wedding Cupcake classes and I had the honour of photographing them, below is one of the pictures I took (beginning to LOVE food photography!), which was then edited by the ever famous Shikhita.

  3. Your cupcakes are so pretty! I love the yellow and pink together and rose swirl icing is always so effective.

    Just to answer the question you left on my blog, I use a Nikon D90 for my photography (I did a lot of photography at uni so I invested in a good camera). I usually use the manual settings and try to get the image/lighting/colours as close to what I want when I'm taking the photo but if needed I do very basic editing using Windows Photo Gallery (I have absolutely no photoshop skills whatsoever!)

  4. Thank you Jo! I use a Nikon D60, thinking of upgrading my lense! Manual settings are far too complicated for me, I just stick to the basic rules of taking pictures in good daylight! I have absolutely no photography knowledge though so the buzz words kill me!
