Cameo Cupcakes

Yes, that's right, more cupcakes!  But forgive me please, as I just couldn't wait to show you these beautiful cameo cupcakes I created late yesterday evening.  While on a supply trip to my local sugar craft shops I spotted these amazing cameo moulds and simply couldn't resist!  I snapped it straight up and rushed home to try it out.  I can't get over how pretty they are, so delicate and feminine, I can see me getting a lot of use out of this purchase.  And maybe even rushing out to buy the collection.


I love how they look when paired with my teacup cupcake cases.  Just perfect for afternoon tea with the girls.
While I'm here I thought I'd also show you some wedding cupcakes I was asked to make this week.  I know they're the same old designs I posted earlier this month but I think the ivory and black colour combination gives the cupcakes such an eye catching effect.  Simply stunning, just right for a wedding.

So cute! I was looking at cameo molds online the day and now I think I am going to have to buy some.

I love the bows too! Could you do a tutorial on how to make them?

OH my goodness! I used to collect cameo jewelery and stuff. These cupcakes are just so sweet and unique! I love love love them. What's it made from? Fondant? Chocolate?

Katiecakes said...

The cameos are made from white fondant, I then stuck them to a sheet of black fondant and chopped out a border :) Couldn't be easier!

As for the bows, all I did was roll a piece of fondant into a long strip and fold it in a pretzel shape and popped a silver ball on the join. Just thought it finished them off nicely :)

Stunning certainly is the right word!

My little brother got them for my birthday a few years ago. They're by Fred, I've seen their stuff in Paperchase and on Firebox.com

They make some awesome kitchen wares. I have the cutest Russian Doll measuring spoons and cups by them too :)

Great cupcakes, I've wanted cameo molds for ages now, they look fantastic, very stylish. Which is fitting because I have just passed on a stylish blogger award to you. x
