Vanessa Pike-Russell

Inspired by some fantastic photography of cupcakes on Flickr I decided to try and source some cute cupcakes locally. The best I could find was the cupcake with a smiley face on it.

Since then I have been scouring the net and have decided that the best way to photograph a pretty cupcake is to make my own. I'm a soft touch for anything with a frangipani on it so I was inspired to make some cupcakes and add a frangipani on some and butterflies on others.

I found some great resources that I wanted to share

First:
How to cover cupcakes with poured fondant

Next:
How to make a frangipani flower out of fondant

Supplies:
Frangipani cutter
Fondant and cake topper supplies


And something that is just so beautiful I'd be a very happy recipient if it was delivered to my door. Photography and cupcake design by Le Cupcake
