My first Cupcake order.... The Crying Baby

Wow what a weekend, l had my first cupcake order on Friday night I was so excited. You could say that l was so excited that it didn't quite register that she wanted the cakes on Sunday for her baby shower eeeek.

When I got home I started to panic, so off to the kitchen l went. l got the design from the Planet Cake Cook Book. l tried my first one, I was pleasantly surprised that they seemed a lot easier to make then they looked. The panic started to ease and l went off to bed thinking l WILL be able to do this!

I used this White Chocolate Mud Cake recipe, then iced the cakes with ganache and then the fondant. It was a bit of a process, but it was worth it for the affect it created.

I'm not going to give out the details of how to make the design, as l feel l will cheat the people who have created the book. But if you are serious about cake design and decoration it's a great book to buy and for $45.00 it won't break the bank.

I got them all finished with plenty of time to spare, she was thrilled with the Cakes!

I would love to hear you comments and suggestions, so please feel free to leave a comment.
