Sweetness And Light

Tuesday, February 8, 2011

Using pre-prepared sweets and details to decorate cakes often looks a bit... pre-prepared. It can detract from the lovely home-made feeling of the baking itself. Much as minimalism can be beautiful, finding a balance between leaving cakes bare and unadorned or finding the time to do them justice can be challenging.

These cupcakes use marshmallows and coloured sugar to create striking shapes and textures...

And, if you like to dress to match your afternoon tea, these flower bobby pins would be a lovely combination...

And these flowers are a little less likely to wilt in the summer heat, too.
