Cheery Cakes

Yesterday was a hell of a day. I as working on two sizable cake orders after having a butter cream anxiety dream involving a massive vat of butter cream that I wanted to be white, but was turning darker and darker pink, it was like a horrifying bucket of tubby custard or something.

Having wiped the sweat from my brow in the morning and cracked on with the orders-the dream pretty much came true! My cream cheese frosting as just not holding up and it kept going all sloppy, I thought I was doing something wrong but it turned out the new brand of cream cheese I as using just had a high water content. Philadelphia all the way from now on.

Anyway it’s all behind me now and this morning glided by without a hitch, here are some of the cheerful cupcakes to reflect the present mood.
