Wear it pink! - Cakes for charity

Today is Wear it pink day, for Breast cancer campaign. I am trying to get everyone in the office to partake by wearing something pink to work today. The donation is £2 or a forfit of £5 if someone decides not to dress up... Not mentioning any names!!

So, I made some cakes to encourage the troops and also make a little more for charity, selling them at £1 each.

The cakes are vanilla flavour cupcakes, with pink buttercream icing and a hand made icing disc with a piped ribbon on to reprisent the charity bow. Sold a few already today!

Butterfly Cakes

Here are the cakes that I have been baking this week. They are vanilla cupcakes with white buttercream icing - nice and simple. They also have matching coloured butterflies on the top to match their cases!

The cases were from Morrisons, so readily available! And the butterflies were made using a PME butterfly press. This adds the details on the wings too! I got the small press and the medium with the view of puttting one of each on the cakes, but they looked suficient with one butterfly on!

The cakes also look great collected all together in a swarm:

Let me know what you think!

Strawberry Cakes

Here are the latest cakes. This week, I went for a slight afternoon tea theme with fresh strawberrys, jam and butterfly cakes!

I have also taken the opportunity to photograph the cakes on my new cupcake stand! It's the swirly metal stand which holds and tilts each cupcake making them irresistible!!

White buttercream icing with half a fresh strawberry placed on the side!
