This weekend I was part of a great hen party and delighted to make cupcakes for our afternoon of fun and games (before descending into evening chaos!)
The wedding in 6 weeks time is to be safari themed, at the fantastic Chester Zoo. So anything animal went as a theme – and I bought these fantastic zebra and leopard print cupcake cases from Scrumptious last weekend at the Cake and Bake Show.
The cupcakes were a rich chocolate, topped with a salted caramel butter cream (thanks again Sugar and Crumbs!)
To top – I made 18 different toppers out of fondant, sprinkles, edible glitter and edible ink, time consuming but creatively great fun! Anything hen party themed went –
Moet and Veuve champagne bottles
Sparkly learner ‘L’ plates
Bingo balls & cards – as we were heading for a few inebriated games that evening
The bingo balls I made into the two dates – one for the hen party, and the other for the wedding:
Beautiful bridal bouquets (centred with edible gold soft pearls)
Sparkly, SPARKLY shoes
And one of my favourites to make – pretty underwear sets and sexy basques
Can someone please have an underwear and shoes party – I want to make more of these!!
They were the perfect centrepiece to the afternoon and quickly devoured by some hungry hens.
And amid champagne, wine and presents – one very happy hen!
