This is a giant cupcake cake I made for my daughter Layla’s 12th birthday past this weekend. She was having a cupcake-decorating party with her friends where I was teaching them how to make various cupcake designs with fondant and buttercream, so this cake seemed like a good choice. I initially had something a lot more elaborate in mind, but between party planning and having 4 kids home on summer vacation (and running on very little sleep), I had to simplify for the sake of my sanity. I think this would have been a much easier and less time consuming design if I had a giant cupcake mold, but I don’t, so I had to carve it by hand, which was trickier that I expected. For the design, since my daughter is a girly girl and loves all things cute and pretty, I decorated it with some shiny butterflies, pearls and a nice pink bow. In the end, she loved it and all her friends ooh-ed and aah-ed, so it was a success in my book.
Hope you like it too and thanks for looking! :) xx
