Book Worm Cupcakes

These were a birthday treat for my friend Lou. We've known each other since we were little kids and she lived just around the corner from me. She still does in fact!

As usual I was short on time (I seem to live in a different time zone to everyone else) so I needed to make something quick that still had that personal touch.

Always engrossed in a book, Lou has been a keen reader as far back as I can remember, so I decided to reflect that in her cakes.

These are chocolate cupcakes, with chocolate frosting and little book worm toppers made out of fondant.

A third niece for Mr Chris! 

Congratulations to Steve, Ruth and Connie on the newest member of 
their family, Kitty May.

My second attempt to cover a cake with fondant icing - still a very frustrating experience but a better result then the first attempt.

Again I had trouble with the icing sticking to the surface but in addition to this I failed to roll it thin enough to cover the whole cake, hence the piping along the bottom and decorations around the edge hiding the gaps and bodged bits :/

I also cheated with the decorations on this one. Unfortunately I didn't have enough time to make my own so I bought these.
