Sky Sports Cupcakes

Americolor Electric Green rose swirls 
I’ve spent the last few months telling my boyfriend, with a promising look on my face, that I would bake some cupcakes for his work. After listening to myself consistently repeat the same sentence “I’ll make them tomorrow!” I knew it was time to stop procrastinating and start being a girlfriend that sticks to her word, it’s difficult, I must say. Luckily the time came around (with great luck) that I had a few spares baked up at work for the pirates and mermaids class, and since the class finished on time I had just enough time to get creative and still manage to leave the workshop at 6!

The most annoying thing about these cupcakes was deciding on decoration. Russell works for Sky Sports, so this meant something green and sporty, along with the clashing combination of red and blue? Yum. My fondant modelling skills are painfully dire, and I ended up moulding what I thought were rugby balls, but it turns out, they’re actually American footballs. This is the perfect misunderstanding of sports, considering Sky Sports doesn’t cover American football, so my modelling work was pretty much pointless.  Oh well, the cupcakes were still well received which in vanilla essence, is all that matters.
The recipe used for these cupcakes can be found in the Vanilla Cupcakes post, or if you cant be bothered to go all the way over there - just think to yourself, 3 eggs, 1 cup flour, half cup sugar, 1 tsp of vanilla and BP and voila. 
Sky Sports Cupcakes - Americolor Red Red & Navy Blue 
For the buttercream, I used Americolor Electric Green for the sporty cupcakes. For the more flowery counterpart; I used an Americolor Red Red for the flat tops, teamed with an Americolor Navy Blue.
Love Em xx
