Something green, white & yellow

Cocoa & Butterscotch’s recent project was very green, white, and yellow.

Our sweet customer wanted to surprise her parents with a lovely garden themed cupcake tier & lemon-y cupcakes for their anniversary this week.

We almost couldn’t meet the request because of my busy school week and Dot’s tight schedule at work but I’m really glad I said yes. I mean, how could I turn down such a sweet request?

So in the end, it all panned out nicely. The tier turned out amazing. Check out the ‘grass’ Dot used for the tiers and the summer flowers, together with matching ribbons and details.

I really love the tier. To be honest, I wish I could keep it for myself. haha….

Don’t you think it’s beautiful?

And cupcake tiers need to be filled with cupcakes no?

So I baked some… And my customer’s parents like lemon-y stuff so she asked for lemon cupcakes. I gave her lemon cupcakes filled with lemon curd and frosted with lemon buttercream. She wanted some flower decor so I got some white icing flowers to go with the yellow buttercream.

I don’t know about you, but I am not a huge fan of large amounts of icing. I know it looks beautiful, to see so much colour on top of these little cakes… but really, who eats so much icing? That’s why I always use just enough…. and my frosting’s not really sweet – just nice to get that flavour. I added lemon zest and lemon juice to this one. Came out yum 🙂

Okay, I know you’re wondering if I made those flowers. I’d love to say I did but I’d be a big fat liar… So there you go, I bought them. 🙂

Aren’t they lovely?

I don’t think anyone can bear to eat it. I know I wouldn’t. I’d just keep them forever… My sister thought it was clay though!

Ah… am pretty happy with this garden themed project.

That’s the beauty of custom-made tiers, you decide what the theme is, the colours and how you want the entire feel to be. You choose, and Cocoa & Butterscotch makes it for you. It’s as simple as that!

I hope my customer & her parents + family enjoyed the cupcakes & liked the tier as much as I did.

Enjoy the weekend ya’ll!

As usual, your tiers look good enough to eat, and your cupcakes look sublime!
