These are chocolate and lemon muffins made for work but they never made it.
And cookies & cream cupcakes. First time using vegetable shortening in cupcakes. Not to bad but I prefer butter. These had crushed Oreo cookies in the batter, with vanilla butter icing.
These were a practice run. So the family got to eat them. Vanilla cupcakes covered in ready to roll icing and then I stamped on the hearts with black food colouring.
More practice runs. These were made with ready to roll icing pressed into a cookie sheet with shapes. I painted the orange flower where as the others I coloured the icing first.
Practicing stencils cut out and put onto cakes. I think the stencils should of been a bit thinner, will have to practice these a lot more.
For this one the stencil was held onto the cake and then hand painted using food colouring. Next time I should try thinning the food colouring with vodka or something.
Overall I have been busy in the kitchen and learning from my mistakes. I have really enjoyed it and will be baking more soon.
