Christmas Cupcakes

Wow, busy week!

London Rollergirls had their season opening bout on Saturday. We gave it a Christmassy theme, just because it was December. Sadly, my favourite team lost the game, but I did get to make some rather yummy Christmas themed cupcakes.

These were mince pie cupcakes with brandy butter icing. Sounds weird, totally works.

And a less alarming sounding lemon and blueberry flavour with sugarpaste snowflakes:

I love cake :)

Did you buy the snowflakes or are they fondant?

Lauren Grace said...

Hi Courtney - the snowflakes are fondant, cut out with snowflake shape cutters.

they look great! how did you get the icing colour to fade out like that?

Lauren Grace said...

Thanks Gem! Fill half your piping bag with one colour, half with another, and do a swirl with a large star attachment. Simples!
