Another cupcake experiment! Fresh strawberry buttercream frosting topped with raspberries and heart-shaped candy melts (handmade/dyed). <3
Frosting recipe here: http://www.all-about-cupcakes.com/strawberry-frosting-recipe.html
I had some trouble with the frosting because the strawberries started to ferment once they were mixed together with the rest of the ingredients (still tasted delicious but was a bit gooey/sticky).
The bottom picture was a special batch I made for a coworker’s birthday. The stencil is our unofficial workplace mascot (it’s a cat with a mustache) and I made an edible version of him. :3
1) EXPCon: Here I was experimenting with sugar sheets. The logos are completely edible and deeelish.
2) Holiday Matsuri: Ok…so I may have made these at 2am after a few beers… Could have been a lot better but oh well. The bunnies are the con mascots!
I wasn’t a huge fan of how the red icing looks like ketchup.
3) MANIME!: haha…so a club I went to in Florida had this manly anime night thing. I think I made these ironically but all the dudely dudes were like “ooohh~ cupcakes! yaaaaay! <3” SO manly.
This was my first time working with candy melts (I dyed them myself). Candy melts are cool but they still lack freedom when it comes to shaping stuff.
