Was it 10 out of 10 for the Birthday Cupcake Workshop?

Well, there were 14 party guests, 4 cupcakes to decorate each and about 2 hours to fill. No sign of a 10 so far, oh but hang on, 10 was the birthday age being celebrated today.

Following on from my first Children’s Party, we all had an absorbing afternoon, creating beautiful cakes this time with a vintage feel.

Personalising the cupcake boxes was a great success first time around, so we began this party in the same manner. An excellent way to provide an opening activity.

As the girls were older, a demonstration followed illustrating how to make fondant roses and icing two of the cupcakes with sugarpaste discs.

Icing cupcakes with discs of sugarpaste is an extremely effective way of creating a neat professional looking finish. Discs can be cut out using a standard pastry cutter of an appropriate size, the type of equipment many people have knocking around the kitchen. Boiled sieved apricot jam is brushed onto the cakes to allow the discs to stick.

The girls picked up the techniques very quickly and demonstrated a good degree of skill. Definitely 10 out of 10.

So by half time this is what we had.
After a few more pointers the girls rolled out more paste this time in a variety of pastel colours and cut out flowers, stars and blossoms and also had a go at royal icing piping.
Advanced stuff!
Glitter and silver sugar balls provided the finishing touches.
Individually the cakes looked gorgeous and collectively they looked stunning.
A beautiful take home treat. 10 out of 10 all round.
