Welcome to my Kitchen!

I had brought my camera to the shop the other week, so I thought it would be fun to take some more "behind the scenes at Bella Cupcakes Headquarters" photos.

While all you lovelies out there are fast asleep, I'm usually in my kitchen with the music going full blast making magic happen.  It's really lovely knowing its just me and my cupcakes.  Working away getting everything ready for my lovely customers.

Busy! Busy! Busy! Cutting out fondant to cover my cupcakes

 I absolutely love this part - decorating the cupcakes.  These are my handmade fondant roses - I think they look lovely on the lace embossed cupcake.

So what's the story behind these cupcakes?  These were made for a wedding.  The bride-to-be loved my purple rose cupcake tower I did awhile back and she wanted something similar.  I don't really like to do the same design twice so, I change a few things and well just love the final look of everything.

The bride decided to go for our delicious chocolate mud cake for the top cake.  And for the cupcakes our very popular white chocolate & raspberry and something a bit tropical: coconut and pineapple cupcake with infused coconut buttercream {YUMO}.

Another fun cupcake tower to make and just love all the details.  My favourite would have to be those super large roses!!  My bride just loved everything about it too, which just makes me super happy!

Happy Baking!
