Last Sat was a day of firsts for me. I’ve baked for family, friends and for people who’ve gotten recommendations from these people. But last week, I got my first order through my blog…very exciting I must say. haha.
And this was also the first time I tried my hand at sugarpaste/fondant. I got the recipe off another blog and I’m happy to say that although I was a little wary of all the fancy-
chemistry lab- sounding ingredients, the resulting fondant turned out okay. But I really don’t fancy using gelatine…the smell can be quite off-putting. I have another recipe that uses egg white but no gelatine..might give that a try sometime.
Anyways, the order was for vanilla cupcakes with a pink and white theme, along with lettering, which was what the fondant was for. I made mini cupcakes from the magnolia bakery’s recipe and topped it off with large swirls of buttercream. I just hope they were well received!! *tightly crossed fingers*
