Birthday Cakes Melbourne - RSPCA Cupcake Day

I think Spring may finally have thrust itself out from the wintery Melbourne covers!  For the first time in recent memory, we have shivered through one of the coldest and wettest Melbourne winters, and while I love Winter, I must admit, I am looking forward to all that Spring will deliver!

So, apart from building our new e-boutique, what have we been up to?

First we have some more of our incredibly popular black stringwork bow design cupcakes, this time for a 21st birthday at the uber-chic Chapel St bar "The Imperial"

Chocolate fudge cupcakes in black cases, with white fondant, and two decorative designs, our "Cary Grant" of formal cupcakes (the balck stringwork bow) and it's design partner the white trellis.

We have also supplied one of our loveliest clients (Angie) with an over-the-top cake to celebrate her 30th birthday... with our "inner drag queen" front and foremost at the design stage!

A chocolate-orange marble cake, covered in toffee coloured fondant.  Hand-painted leopard print, and decorated with hot pink and lime green "drag queen lillies" and topped with some hot pink ostrich feathers for good measure!

And, we have also been hard at work creating some afternoon tea goodies for a High Tea party in aid of the RSPCA, as part of their Cupcake Day fundraising campaign.

Mini chocolate cupcakes, chocolate sable Calling Card cookies, and pink Rosewater Meringue Kisses with white ganache were the order of the day.  The puppies on hand for the festivities were treated to some custom "puppy poppers" in peanut butter flavour!

Happy Baking!
