We had a fantastic day at the National Asian Wedding Show, held at the beautiful National Motorbike Museum, Birmingham. Our new floral designed wedding cakes for 2015 were admired by many of the soon to be bride and grooms. Our delicious eggless cake samples were very popular and quickly disappeared with many people coming back and asking for more!
Our newly designed wedding cupcakes and favours drew much attention and seem just as popular this year as in previous years.
The humble cupcake has become one of life’s simple pleasures and has become a unique alternative to the traditional wedding cake. Wedding cupcakes give us a fantastic opportunity to create beautiful personal designs to suite any wedding reception. Soft sponge topped with thick, buttery, melt in the mouth icing – makes it really hard for quests to resist their delightful tasty charm! It only feels like yesterday that the cupcake entered our lives to become the nation’s best loved treat. But little did we know, the cupcake has been making serious groundwork in the baking world since the 19th century.
Cupcakes purely came about due to convenience as they saved so much time in the kitchen, and still to this day they are a firm favourite to create due to their ease. We’re still unsure how the cupcake got his name, but there are two theories 1) the cakes were originally cooked in cups and 2) the ingredients used to make cupcakes were measured out by the cup. The earliest cupcake recipe consisted of these key ingredients; one cup of butter, two cups of sugar, three cups of flour, four eggs, one cup of milk and one spoonful of soda.
Today, cupcakes can be found in every flavour imaginable! Love peanut butter? No problem; you can have peanut butter flavoured icing. Fancy some lemon curd? Just add to the middle of your cupcake. However you want your cupcakes decorated, the choice really is endless and with a dollop of creativity you can create your ultimate treat.
Part of the cupcakes appeal is how perfectly decorated they are, visually they are always on point; piled high with butter icing and topped with fruits, sauces, chocolates or sugar icings they really are a treat for the eyes as well as the mouth and make a real eye catching statement at any wedding reception.
Fancy a change? How about trying sugar lace icing? New to the sugarcraft world, sugar lace icing, is a key baking trend which has captured the imagination and minds of amateur and professional bakers alike. For those of you who are unfamiliar with this new way of decorating cakes, it is a very simple but effective way of decorating cakes and cupcakes. Simply mix Sugarveil or Sweet lace Icing Mix with warm water and apply to stencils or a silicone mat, before peeling off and decorating on cakes and cupcakes to create a beautiful, sophisticated and one of a kind lace design which stands out from the crowd.
