Yummy and oh so cute!!!


Hey guys. So i had a lovely day yesterday for my sons birthday. He got many awesome gifts and was a very happy chappy. We had a lush dinner at my sisters where he was smiling constantly and had a lot of laughs. As part of his birthday i made these cute little cakes.




So i thought I'd share the recipe with you. Its very simple to make and so delicious and girly.

Ingredients and Equipment


Cupcake recipe of your choice
400g fondant icing
Yellow, pink, purple and green food colouring
250g unsalted butter
250g icing sugar
2tbsp strawberry jam
Cake decorations
Flower, heart and leaf cutters
Piping bag


Bake cupcakes and allow to cool.

Split fondant icing into four pieces and knead to mix with the four different food colourings.

Dust a surface with icing sugar, roll out fondant icing 2mm thick, then use a flower shaped cookie cutter to cut out the shapes.

Mix the butter, icing sugar, jam, salt and pink colouring using an electric mixer to make butter cream icing. Pipe on the centre of the flower shape.

Create shapes with heart and leaf cutters (score leaf marks with a knife) and stick into icing when dry.

Add ready-made cake decorations on top. 

And there u have it. easy peasy so I'm interested to know guys what you’d like tutorials on next :)

Till next time
