At long last, my giveaway winner's cupcakes have been made. She knew exactly what she wanted which was great; however, her theme was quite a challenge for me! Kate chose Lego as the theme, which sounds easy in theory...but when you have 2 dozen cupcakes to work with it's hard to make them not look boring. Luckily, she provided me with a few additional guidelines...I was to incorporate these two images in my work:
recipe from allrecipes.com that I plan on using again next time I do a baking project.
Kate's requested flavors were chocolate chip cupcakes with chocolate buttercream for the frosting. I took a little artistic liberty and put the layer of buttercream between the cupcake and the fondant. I knew it would be impossible to get the cupcakes to turn out how I wanted without a circle topping of fondant, but didn't want the enjoyment of the cupcakes to suffer on account of the fondant (which actually tasted MUCH better than I expected). I feel like there are still a lot of things I would do differently with this project, but I gave it my best and hopefully Kate and her husband will enjoy their cupcakes!
