Cupcakes - miniature works of edible art!
Decorating cupcakes is all about personal taste, imagination and suitability for an occasion. There are endless possibilities when it comes to deciding what to create so we hope you will feel inspired by some of Lindy’s examples below to have a go… or to be a little bit more adventurous.
Cupcakes a true taste sensation that looks beautiful too:
“Cupcakes are currently taking the world by storm and I think I know why……baking and decorating cupcakes is great fun, rewarding and not too time consuming. On my travels around the globe I’ve seen cupcakes in all shapes and sizes, in tiny little boutique cake shops and large supermarkets. I have also been given them as welcome gifts – it seems everyone loves a cupcake!
My aim with my cupcakes, whether it is developing tasty recipes or designing the decorations, is to help put the humble cupcake centre stage to show the world just what it can be: a beautiful, ‘collectable’, miniature work of art that is a true taste sensation not just a fashionable cake to bake!” Lindy
