Prism cupcakes

So I was very excited when Anna asked me to make cupcakes
for her Prism launch party during London Fashion Week.

We even got a mention on Style.com!

"In fact, judging by the crowd at last night’s launch party for Prism,
the eyewear range designed by Anna Laub, even folks with 20/20
vision are keen to accessorize their eyes. Laub had taken over the roof
deck at London’s Soho House, and along with the lychee cocktails and
miniature cupcakes going around, there were pairs of glasses from the
new line there for the trying-on."

After an exhaustive tasting session, we decided to go for vanilla
cupcakes with four different types of icing to match the different finishes,
as well as the triangular Prism logo in rolled black Royal icing.

Above is the metallic blue, lime flavoured icing to
match London in Midnight Blue.

Cream and black vanilla and chocolate buttercream
icing to match Paris Zebra Horn.

Black chocolate icing dusted with matt black
powder to match Rio Matt Black.

And pale grey lemon icing to match New York Crystal Grey.

And here's Elizabeth Rose Bankford in her Crystal Grey Prisms,
with a lychee cocktail and lemon cupcake!

Spaghetti and meatballs cupcakes

I made these for Ruth's leaving do at work.
At first glance, they look a little worrying...

But everyone seemed to think they tasted good.

Joey and Andrew's birthday cakes

And these were chocolate and vanilla
cupcakes for Joey and Andrew's birthday.

They chocolate icing was decorated with white chocolate buttons...

...and the vanilla icing had Milky Way Magic Stars.

Vanilla and lemon birthday cupcakes

Here are the cupcakes I made for my mum's birthday party last year.

The floral cakes (above) were vanilla buttercream
and the dolly mixture (below) were lemon.

I displayed them on tiered stands covered with doilies
and put a few candles on the ones on the top.

About Me

I'm a fashion writer/baking enthusiast based in North London.

I'm particularly keen on icing and decoration as I love painstakingly laborious tasks, but the cakes taste great too.
