New Year, New Blog!

As we stand on the threshold of 2010, I thought it would be nice to start a blog journalling my creative pursuits in the world of cake making, particularly as I received many inspiring books and gadgets to assist me in developing my baking skills. I hope to show here my progress in Calavera Cakes; my pipedream for a custom cupcake business venture.

As tomorrow is New Year's Eve and we will be having guests over for drinks and nibbles, I thought it would be a perfect excuse to whip up a batch of NYE cupcakes! I'm going for a fairly simple design - chocolate cake, vanilla buttercream icing...with a hint of glitz. I went to the shops today and purchased a palette knife, some icing nozzles (which came attached to some sort of strange gun) and some silver foil cases. I also purchased some yellow edible glitter, which doesn't really taste all that great, so I have hoped to compensate by sticking a Cadbury's Caramel chocolate button on top :)

Pics to follow shortly!
