Lime and coconut cupcakes

Hello everyone, hope your all keeping warm in this cold weather. I have had such a hectic last few weeks, bought our first home and moved in, got a new puppy, I started 2 new jobs and finished up at my other job, cake orders to do  and then my PopPop passed away the other day! Very sad 😦
So, naturally….I felt like baking something, it usually helps me feel better… a kind of therapy I suppose lol.
So anyways, since it’s winter here I was craving something fresh and summery, and I just happened to see some limes on my daily travels so I grabbed some and went home to make
Coconut and Lime Cupcakes!
Yuuuuummmm yum they turned out delicious and quite tart which I love.
The cupcake was a lime cake which, while cooling, I soaked with a lime syrup and then topped with a cream cheese icing that I added lime juice and desiccated coconut too.
Oh, and sprinkled with my homemade green sugar hehe
My 4 year old agrees… these are a winner 🙂

Feel free to contact me to order these cupcakes or any other flavour you might like!

Monster truck cake!

This is a monster truck cake inspired by the kids program called “Blaze and the Monster Machines”.
The cake is made out of banana cake layered with a delicious banana cream pie flavoured buttercream and covered in white fondant and black fondant squares. The plaque is made with grey fondant and a red number 5 using the “funky” themed letter set.
My mum actually made the 5 hehe it prooved to be trickier than it had first seemed lol
The ‘Darrington’ monster truck on top was made out of cake at the clients request and was resting on rice bubble crunch wheels and wooden dowels.
