Cupcake Decorating 101

This has been an extremely interesting weekend for me. I attended a cupcake class and bought a bird. THAT’S RIGHT A BIRD! I’m not a very big pet person, but myself and hubby have both previously owned cockatiels and thought it might be a nice idea to get one for our little boy. He loves the bird, however, it is terrified of him, no surprise there!

Anyway, back to baking. I attended the cupcake class with Siddiqa from Cupcakes with Siddiqa (go over and check out her blog, some great ideas for cupcake decorating). The class was run by Sumayya from Mio Cupcakes. I’ve had a few orders by them before, their work is amazing, so I was very eager to attend a class with them.







The class is a great experience for beginners. Sumayya shares some simple tips on how to work fondant  for decorations and using buttercream. My personal favourites were the fondant bow and pleated ribbon rose (photo above). After 2 & 1/2 hours of hands on work, we all left with 6 very pretty cupcakes. Check out some more photos below.
