Cupcake Fancy

This cupcake was a birthday surprise last week for our little friend Ann Welch.

Earlier this year AW's talented mommy, Montgomery area photographer Allison Hilyer, beautifully captured the fun of Mary Ashley's cupcake baking birthday party. So I wanted to return the favor by making a cake or cupcakes for Ann Welch.

These strawberry cupcakes were topped with swirls of buttercream icing piped on with a large star tip. Then with a smaller star tip, I added swirls of turquoise icing. To make the rose toppers, I rolled pink Wilton fondant out thin, cut it into strips and rolled it. For the final icing details, I used a v-shaped tip to pipe three leaves around each rose and used a small round tip to add the zigzag of icing around the rim. Green Wilton candy pearls tucked into the turquoise icing add the final touch.

Happy Birthday, Ann Welch!

Still to come this week, a holiday giveaway.
