Busy, busy busy here at Poppy Mallow, just like I like it - I was able to sneak a few minutes to take some pictures of the hockey-themed dozen I was working on today though. Apologies for the bad lighting

They're not supposed to be but I think the pucks are so cute - they're made out of chocolate fondant. The sticks are painted with gel colour - I learned very quickly that a hockey stick has a distinct proportion - if you get it wrong it just looks like a funny twig thing.

In real life they were vanilla and strawberry buttercream and the red was red not an orangey colour. I don't mean to toot my own horn but the strawberry buttercream is deee-licious - I bumped up the strawberry content so much I was nervous that the buttercream base had been pushed to it's limits and would separate into a hideous clumpy mess, but she held. Proud of her.

Valentines Day...

Because Valentines Day is about couples it stands to reason that ordering a dozen cupcakes at one time might not suit everyones needs - so, between Friday the 12th and Sunday the 14th, we will be taking orders for half-a-dozen. AND because it's such a special day, there will be three different flavours per box!

The Valentines Special - two each of Choclit-choclit with caramel ganache, Nilla-Nilla with strawberry swirl and Baroness - all of which will be tastefully spiffed up to suit the occasion! This comes to you, delivered free of charge within Kingston for a Cupid-pleasing price of 17.50.

Let me know 24 hours in advance if you're interested!
