So every year I like to make a birthday cake for my sister as part of her gift from me. This year I made a cupcake birthday cake for her and because she is a dancer, I of course went with a "dance" and "music" theme.
My design was inspired by the amazing work I've seen on the Sugar Bloom Cupcakes website.
I used the colour blue for the month of December and it's also her favourite colour. I wanted to keep the design elegant and somewhat simple using white and blue icing and fondant, white sugar flowers, silver balls and a pair of fondant molded dance shoes for decoration.
I added the music bars and notes with black icing to represent music.
I made two different cupcakes, one I was already baking, which was the Key lime & Coconut cupcakes I used for the Cupcake Hero contest and the other was a Vegan Lemon cupcake.
I'm getting better at handling fondant - yay! Everyone loved the design, the flavour and thought the shoes were adorable ... and they were fun to make, you know, after the fourth try!
Love you sis!
