When a good friend of mine asked if I could make her some themed cupcakes for a friends stagette weekend, or “hen-do” as they call it here in the UK, I knew that this project was going to be fun. The girls were travelling on the Eurostar from London to Disneyland Paris, and needed a sweet treat to eat while on the train. I pretty much got free reign of what the cupcakes were going to look like. The only prerequisites were that one set had to have a Mickey or Minnie Mouse theme, and the other set had to be in lilac and dark purple – the bride to be’s wedding colors. I made the Minnie Mouse decorations and flowers out of gum paste, and the sparkly purple balls out of MMF (marshmallow fondant). It was my first time using the edible glitter, and I loved the look of it. There’s just something really fun about eating something that is so sparkly and pretty. Overall, I was really pleased with the way they turned out, and the girls absolutely LOVED them!
