Happy St Patricks day!


It ’twas indeed the luck of the Irish on this particular order which was for ‘irish themed’ cupcakes and cookies.

The cupcakes I was looking forward to, the cookies….. well they had me sweating bullets as I had never made a cookie before let alone flooded them with royal icing..arghhhh panic set in!

I figured what the heck, I can do it! and so I did, I made a double batch and ran them past some discerning taste testers… Success!!!  They loved them!!

Now for the Royal icing, I had scoured the ‘Interwebs’ for hints and tips and set about tackling the daunting task.

Pffttttttt… What was a worried about they worked perfectly with no flaws, tears or fiery explosions, I had made my first cookies and was feeling pretty pleased with myself, I can only go up from here lol

Will I be making cookies again?  To be sure, to be sure!!!

What do you think??

These adoreable little cupcakes were also made for the St Patricks day Fundraiser!

They were a lot of fun to make and despite their simplicity a lot of work was involved!

The little coins are hand painted fondant which I then cut out into tiny circles, the hats were made from Green fondant (Electric Green) with an added fondant hatband with handpainted gold ‘buckle’.

Lastly the shamrocks were a series of little hearts which were veined and painted with peony lustre dust then assembled to look like…  well you get the picture. lol
