Aren't these just the cutest!
They were a very special order for the fabulous midwives over in our local maternity hospital. They are from a very proud new Momma to a baby boy, oh boy! And she wanted to treat her midwives to something nice to say thank you for helping her along her way!
The brief was cute and boyish and I couldn't resist the urge to practice some more fondant making. I used Nigella's cookie cutters to pop out shapes and then used the tip of a writing nozzle to make the holes in the centres. Hey presto, you have pretty buttons!
They were so simple to make and the results just look super cute, if I do say so myself.
The cupcakes are blue and white to match the fondant theme and they are different flavours too. There whites are my plain ol' vanilla and the blue ones are coconut cream (I'll have that recipe coming very soon!).
I hope the midwives like them, I'm sure they'll enjoy one on their break with their well deserved cuppa!! Maybe even throw an impromptu Tea Party in the staff room... oh wouldn't that be nice?
I think every work place should throw a tea party once a month in the staff room. I bet you staff moral would rise a gazillion percent!
I defy anyone to tell me they wouldn't like Cake and Tea once a month in the staff room...
********************Thank you my lovely readers for being so patient with my lack lustre blogging and slow as you go efforts. I am slowly working out a schedule that gives me that elusive work /life balance.
But most importantly I have been spending time with my family. We've been very busy celebrating my boy Champ's first Birthday. Can you believe he's ONE already...
Where has that year gone!? I don't think a year has ever gone by so fast! Do you remember he was only born there... um... yesterday!!!??
The Bump Champ! The Boy Champ! The Dinosuar Champ!
