Today me and my adorable hamster ‘Crumbies’ have taken a trip!! I have a few birthdays/Halloween parties to supply for and since they are close to my parents house we’re also using it as a vacation (and for those animal lovers like me ,I can promise, the hamster was safe the whole time in a special carrier with food, water and bedding). I am actually writing this post on the train as we go but what I wanted to write about is my weekend I had my first ever birthday party (cupcake order, that is). I was so happy when a friend of mine asked me to create her mum’s birthday cake, I instantly suggested cupcakes as they are always beautiful and easy to hand around to guests. I was slightly limited on flavours so we came up with a modern twist on the English classic Vic’tori’a sponge, I hope you liked the name reference there lol : ).
It was a vanilla sponge, piped jam centre and a smooth butter cream frosting. I was allowed to go wild with the decoration, which is my favourite thing to hear, although keeping to a black, red, white and silver theme.
I really had fun with these and was so pleased with the outcome. The birthday girl seemed happy too and now I can’t wait to get my hands stuck into my next party.Lots of love Tor xxx
