Fashionista Cupcakes

Hello Summer, we meet again.

For the next twelve weeks, I will relish the almost-empty school corridors, fewer queues and cleaner toilets (because Buffalo students are the only ones who have a summer semester…) I will also try my best not to fall asleep in doubly – long lectures with extremely boring lecturers.Β And if I do fall asleep, I promise to dream of cake, and only cake.

So yes, school has began and the longest twelve weeks of the year starts now. 😦

On a much happier note, I made these cupcakes shortly before my break started — for my cousin who requested a pink-themed-fashion-bags set of cupcakes for her friend’s 50th. I also made another set of dragon themed cupcakes (which I smartly forgot to photograph but they’re in the picture below that my cousin provided!)

I had so much fun with these — been secretly dying to do something else aside from angry birds and hello kitty!

Familiar Faces I hope? ;)

I wasn’t bent on updating so soon — my kitchen smells of chocolate cake and there’s a pile of dishes in the sink waiting to be washed… But those can wait. I’m crossing fingers the mess disappears in the morning. πŸ˜‰

Before I left for Melbourne, in between my exams and awful deadlines, I had requests for character cupcakes.

Thomas & Friends (Percy + James)Β 

These bright coloured faces were requested by a super-cute, super-adorable four year old, Chris. (And this, coming from a person who is terrified/ not the hugest fan of little people with grubby fingers says a lot. He really is damn cute.) Β As a decorator/baker, I’m usually pretty behind-the-scenes. My cakes are usually given as gifts so I rarely get to see the reactions on the recipients’ faces… I was really surprised when he said (to his mother, after seeing the cupcakes) — ” Yes, that’s what I ordered “. Hahaha, totally made my day!

Experiment 626(Stitch) + Experiment 624 (Angel)

These on the other hand was requested from my classmate Cynthia! ❀ I was so excited to make them ’cause Stitch is one of my all-time favourite disney characters! πŸ™‚

Hello KittyΒ 

I’ve done these cupcakes before but no one (until now!) had requested for them in pink. Β You have no idea how happy that made me — something different, yay! Now I’m itching to make some goth or nerd kitties. πŸ˜‰
