This Friday finally came around and it meant that I had to decorate all of the cakes for the engagement party of the friend that I work with! I thought I would let you know how I got on :)
I stayed up late on Thursday evening baking the 48 cupcakes, it would have been SO much quicker if I had been organised and bought more than 1 tin that held 6 cakes...8 rounds later and the oven and I were pretty tired. Don't fret, I have now purchased 3 more tins!
I decided I would do 6 different designs on 8 cakes each to try and keep things simple and I think what I ended up with was 5 designs of 8 and 2 designs of 4.
Here is the finished lot, sorry for all the pictures!
I was SO relieved that these boxes arrived on Friday, I ordered them over a week in advance and I was beginning to panic that they would arrive on Saturday and be too late.
I listed to the advice from you about keeping the pink a little softer and I was so glad I did. You can't see the different shades so easily in these photos and the light pink had dried and gone a little darker and the darker pink was yet to dry and darken so they all look similar. I hope that sort of makes sense?
|I love the little flowers on these ones|
They're not what I would necessarily choose for my engagement party but they were fun to make and I do love glitter and of course the main issue was that my friend loved them and she said she did so all was good!
What do you think of them?
P.S This may be controversial but is it just me that LOVES the look of the Charbonnel et Walker truffle boxes but just thinks they taste old and not nearly as luxurious as the box would suggest. Dare I say it, I prefer Cadbury giant chocolate buttons...
... that's not to say that I won't keep trying the different flavours in the hope that I will strike gold!
