I’ve been trying some new colour combinations for my cupcake toppers and thought dark purple and teal would make a pretty nice combination. I used the colours to make flower toppers (tutorial here) as well as embedded round toppers with skirting. I’ve obviously had a lot more time the last couple of months to work on new combinations and designs and realised that the possibilities are endless! Stay tuned for more!
What are your favourite colour combos?
I recently got an order to make a birthday cake, with no specific design or colour scheme, so I took the opportunity to make an ombre cake 😀 I used AmeriColor gel in teal colour and kept adding a drop after each layer to create the effect. To make the roses, I used my favourite Wilton 1M tip and using a turntable, piped the roses around the cake. I’m quite happy with the way it turned out, especially because I was able to get the buttercream to perfect piping consistency which I have been struggling to perfect since the humidity in Dubai is horrible for cake decorators :S
So here it is 🙂 Happy Birthday Jocelyn!
This year for Eid, I decided to go for a vintage theme with my dessert table and decorations for our home. As most of you know, we recently moved to Dubai which means this would have been the first Eid without family! Fortunately for us, my sister lives in Riyadh, Saudi Arabic with her husband and my almost 2 year old niece, and they decided to come down and spend Eid with us. I made the vintage toppers a week in advance and decided to bake carrot cupcakes with cream cheese frosting (they turned out delicious! recipe coming soon!).
Unfortunately, we had a family tragedy a day before Eid which meant we had to leave for Brisbane the very next day. 😦
I managed to distribute the cupcakes to work colleagues and some friends before we left. These toppers took me a while to create, everything is handmade from fondant. I used a smaller flower cutter to make the roses and luster dust to finish off the vintage look.

I love decorating cupcakes for any event but I also love doing it just for fun.
