A repeat customer, who likes to challenge me, wanted a treat for a friend who had been accepted to study nursing at University.
I was stumped initially, and she sent over some images for inspiration. They were great, and I agreed to the order as I had a two-week lead time. So plenty of time to practice and re-do anything necessary, ha ha.
I made all the decorations in advance, so they would have time to harden. It would also give me time to re-do them if they didn't work out as I had imagined, or if they cracked while drying.
Then the day before collection I baked up the Classic Vanilla cupcakes as required, so that they were as fresh as possible for the customer's friend.
Once sufficiently cooled they were iced in our signature Classic Vanilla buttercream icing, and the decorations carefully placed on top. Et voila, gorgeous cupcakes fit for a trainee nurse! Congratulations and enjoy!!
The last few were a simpler design, but still along the medical theme.
And a collage view, that I posted to my Facebook page.
