Everyone that knows me, knows that I love baking cupcakes…so ask me to bake a Giant Cupcake and I think that all my Christmases has come at once :D. And this is exactly what we had to do for the last lesson in the Beginners class.
The cupcake was a butterscotch sponge and I decorated it, using Sugar paste and Rum flavoured buttercream and royal icing. It was a little bit of a challenge for me to get the sugar paste on the base of the cupcake but after an hour, LOL, I had it on and it looked great ;). I only had about 45 minutes left to decorate the rest of the cake and I think, although it may sound strange, help me. My tutor Kim always says to me that I think too much and i am trying to be too neat…so with only that much time left…I had no time to think and I just had to make sure the cake looks like something before the end of the class.
I loved the way the cupcake turned out and to be honest….this one will not be eaten….it’s still on my dining room table, just standing there, looking pretty 🙂
