Cupcakes - Too cute to eat!

My first attempt at decorating cupcakes with something other than a smear of butter icing was, in my opinion, something of a success. The Bug (my mom) and I went to a cupcake decorating workshop in Everton, run by Zolita and her mother Zola. Zolita prepared the faces and flowers for us to use the night before, and taught us various techniques for piping butter icing. She also explained how best to make and use the butter icing for cupcake decorating. I will definitely go to another of her workshops again.

Here are the cupcakes that my mother and I made:

The sheep was definitely my favourite!

The flower garden was fun and easy to do. I'll be making these again soon :)
