Last week we celebrated 2 of my lovely friend’s birthday and they had a Hawaiian themed party! What better excuse to bake some cupcakes and have a bit of an experiment with the decorating! I love baking and unfortunately don’t have a lot of spare time to do it, however, when I do bake, I love it!!!
As my friend is gluten free, I made these cupcakes gluten free. They taste exactly the same, promise!
I used this recipe to make the cupcakes: gluten free vanilla cupcakes
I then used this recipe to make the butter icing and added different food colourings to 3 batches.
For the decorations:
I used brown sugar to create the sand effect, however, you could also do it by crumbling a cake and baking it for a few minutes in the oven to make the crumbs crispy 🙂
I then used cocktail umbrella accessories and I made the flip flops using ready to roll icing.
These were so fun to make, by no means perfect, but I just love experimenting and having a go! The most important thing is that they were tasty!
Hope you enjoy making and tasting them (and throwing a Hawaiian party…any excuse!)
