Life's better with cake and a sprinkle of fairy dust
Pullapart cupcakes intrigue me. I can never really “see” the final cake image when the barenaked chocolate cupcakes are first cloistered together. What can I say? I have terrible visual spatial ability. Hence, can’t drive, or read maps, or find my way. or “see” the potential image in a mass of cupcakes.
It all only starts to make sense slowly after a background layer of very pale beige buttercream gets smoothed on, and the pink hue gets smeared on right at the tip, then the outline gets added on with a medium brown shade of buttercream, bringing together all the different parts of the cake. Wait, don’t forget the stubbly pubes! And cum. Every self-respecting willy cake must have cum.
Did the bride request a bent willy? *Giggles* No, silly. That was all my fault. It was a titanic task squeezing 18 standard cupcakes onto a 12″ cake board. Improvisation led to incurvation, and Bent Willy was born.
I also made some hen night themed bite-sized brownies. My favourite piece is definitely the tiny glittery pair of bride’s heels. I found a copy of Francis McNaughton’s Mini Sugar Shoes on eBay for under a tenner. At first glance, it looks like a very cheap, very thin paperback, or booklet, to be exact. but the instructions are very clear and all the pictorial illustrations are solid. Even without a store-bought shoe template cutter, it wasn’t that difficult to make a pair of heels in under ten minutes. Obviously if I were going to make 100 pairs of these, it would make sense to buy a cutter (which in my opinion, are seriously overpriced and very likely to become a white elephant) but if you’re just making one or two, an Xacto knife or a small fine pair of scissors would work just fine. Overall a tenner well-spent.
