Bakery Style Cosmopolitan Cupcakes

A couple of months ago (queue right hand side-bar), I thought I'd nominate myself for the Cosmopolitan Blog Awards. Having no idea what I'd even entered myself in for, a month or so later I found that my blog was short-listed! I'd like to say a BIG thank you to anyone who voted! It completely stunned me, after a few weeks - I am still not quite over it. Cosmo is where the inspiration stemmed from for the colour of these cute-sy Wilton 1m cupcakes.
 With their whipped frosting style, sugar hearts, stars, strands and pearls - these cupcakes are fit for any girl with a room that glows deep orange when the lights switched on. And that's exactly where they ended up! In the hands of Faircake's lovely accountant Debbie's daughter, it was her 8th birthday and she celebrated with these bakery style vanilla cupcakes that I made for her. They were a light vanilla sponge, topped with a rich and creamy buttercream that I tinted Americolor Fuchsia. You can find the recipe for the cupcakes here :)  
So if you'd like to vote for me, please dont hesitate in clicking here or on the top right hand side. Or if you already voted for me to be short-listed I'm going to take this small blogging space to say an absolutely grand -spanking HUUUUUUUUGE thank you, it really means the world!
