Can you stand on your head?
I recently got an order for 1 dozen red velvet cupcakes decorated like Cheshire Cats from Alice in Wonderland. At first I was a little worried. I’ve never done so much detail before in fondant. And in freehand! I usually use cutters. But I think they turned out pretty good. I got the idea searching on Flickr.
They also ordered 1 dozen chocolate cupcakes decorated with black cats. These were much easier to make as I had a black cat cutter from Halloween. I just added some green eyes.
Busy weekend ahead. LOTS of orders including a Transformers birthday party, a Pink Lady birthday order, 4 dozen Groovy for another birthday order and chef themed cupcakes for a surprise party.
And speaking of standing on ones head, I have a cold right now. And it is really putting up a fight! So this is really the first time where I have to bake and I’m not 100%. I’m just making sure to make lots of lists so I don’t forget anything (as cold medicine makes me a little loopy sometimes). I think it will all work out but I will probably be exhausted by Saturday afternoon.
