Creates, Bakes and Cakes

Ever wondered how long it would take to bake and decorate 250 miniature cupcakes? Well after successfully completing that very task I can tell you that it will take you just over 8 hours of non-stop work. In other words make sure you have got plenty of time on your hands.

Surprisingly enough baking and decorating that many cakes from scratch is seriously hard work and very tiring, the decorations alone took around 4 hours to complete, but all the effort was most definitely worthwhile in the end.

The cakes were ordered by Rosalie’s of Cowes, on behalf of the Cowes Business Association for their ‘La Solitaire Bompard le Figaro’ reception event held at the weekend, celebrating the sailing event.

These miniature cupcakes were designed specifically for the event featuring tiny sailboat iced decorations and following the red, white and blue themes that we all love.

The bite size cakes meant that all the flavours needed to be balanced in order not to be left with an overwhelming sweetness, this is why the addition of the white chocolate coin was beneficial to counter-act the sweet butter icing.

You’ll be pleased to hear that the cakes were a hit! Super, super pleased with the result!
