Buttercream and Fondant

As I was driving home on Friday evening in the jam, I was wondering what to make for the niece and nephews when they came over to mum's. Actually getting stuck in a jam is not that awful, especially when you have things to think about. And as I was slowly inching my way in traffic and thinking really hard, this little fella (actually I have 2 of them in my car) was swinging left and right, each time I braked. And that is when I had my idea and inspiration.


These were some of the mini cuppies that I made for the kids... my first attempt in trying to decorate a cuppie without trying to copy someone else's design :). Well, I must say, it was a case of "ngak sai lo kor" (con little children).


The cuppies were actually blueberries cuppies. Simple vanilla cupcake recipe with blueberry fillings added. I also tried to do some roses and flowers with fondant and buttercream leaves to impress them.



But sadly, none of these were really to their liking. To the kids, yeah, it is just another cupcake....until they saw this one...

Nearly started a kiddo war at mum's house over a cuppie :(. Mum's words of advice "Next time don't decorate cake like that... eat already sure get sore throat".. :(
