Ho ho ho, merry Christmas in July! Today I ventured out into the big world offering up Christmas inspired cakes and cupcakes at a Christmas in July homemade markets. I am so humbled that within 2 hours, all 170 cupcakes and 5 mini cakes had sold out. So, let’s take a sneak peak as to what was offered!
The Winter Wonderland mini cake – white chocolate mudcake with surprise raspberry flavoured pink lovehearts inside, topped with vanilla buttercream frosting, glossy teal white chocolate ganache and homemade meringues. My first attempt at doing the watercolour smear effect – love!
The Caramel Coconutty Christmas mini cake – caramel coconut mudcake, with salted caramel buttercream frosting in the centre, coated with white chocolate frosting and topped with white chocolate ganache drizzle, sprinkled with coconut, and decorated with coconut white chocolate shards and homemade caramel macarons. My fave of the bunch, sold within 5 minutes of starting!
The cupcakes are red velvet with white chocolate frosting.
The Night Before Christmas mini cake – vanilla buttercake with buttercream frosting, decorated with fondant snowflakes dusted with lustre dust. Surprise inside – navy blue with yellow stars, to reflect the night before christmas.
Surrounded by walnut and maple cupcakes decorated like Christmas trees.
The Chocolate Pudding mini cake – dark chocolate mudcake with dark chocolate frosting topped with white chocolate ganache.
Surrounded by gingerbread and salted caramel cupcakes.
The Gingerbread mini cake – custom cake for a friend. With salted caramel buttercream. I got to try out my new scraping tool for the side, so much fun! I added chopped walnuts onto the side.
Choc chip chai cupcakes. Made with T2 choc chip chai infused tea, both in the mix (to which I added more chic chips) and also in the chocolate ganache. Topped with a purple fondant butterfly and dusted with gold glitter. Yummmm!
Gluten free top deck cupcakes – double chocolate chip cupcakes topped with frosting containing Cadbury dream white chocolate with popping candy and topped with homemade white chocolate macarons.
