It has been nearly 9 months since my dad nearly fainted and my mum cried when my brother announced his girlfriend was pregnant. The gifts have been bought, the nursery is complete and I have finished the hamper for his arrival, the final two things to do are to wait for him to be born and make some scrummy cupcakes to celebrate his arrival.
I have been looking around for inspiration and have found some great examples, my head is now full of ideas but I thought before I shared my final product I would share the ones that have inspired me. These cupcakes on The Mucky MacBook are delightful and would be perfect for a baby shower. The use of FMM tappits is an excellent idea and I am thinking about using the FMM Script or Funky Cutters and you could even use the FMM Nursery Tappits to make embellishments and as a little bit of money saving they used the left over Sugarpaste to sprinkle on top of the cupcakes.
I think another great idea would be to bake Blue Velvet Cupcakes, Tracey’s Culinary Adventures have a recipe for Blue Velvet Cake you could use this to bake cupcakes into the Blue Gingham cupcake cases and top with the Baby Blue Feet for a cute little finish. They suggest to use a dark blue paste and a violet paste to get the rich blue colour.
So I guess now the final countdown is on, I best get my apron on and start making cakes. My plan is to keep making cupcakes for his mummy and daddy so I can have many cuddles with him.
