most beautiful cupcakes to ever come out of the oven was a house warming gift for N and D for when they moved into their Shepherds Bush flat.
Made from the same Hummingbird Bakery Vanilla and lemon zest recipes and the same batch of buttercream, these were a colourful, glittery version of the get well soon cupcakes.
I used colour paste in lilac and kelly green to colour the buttercream just slightly and topped them with a dusting of glitter which I had bought at the Cake International exhibition in Birmingham. The lemon zest cupcakes are the same recipe I adapted previously with no additional decorations.
It is important to use strong colours and glitter sparingly as I have found that nobody likes eating them and they are always the last to leave the plate. When colour, glitter or other decorations, remember, less is definitely more.
