My job is having it's annual charity cupcake sale and taste-off this week. I wont last year and so now i feel a lot of pressure to win this year I know I'm going to submit my carrot cake with cinnamon cream cheese frosting. But I don't know what to do for decorations. Because my winner last year was so elaborate they changed the rules that 12 cupcakes must be decorated the same way. So I can't/don't want to do anything toooo elaborate, but I want something good.
I'm hesitant about doing something thanksgiving related because I'm afraid everyone else will do the same thing. But I'm wondering if doing something seasonal would be better. The theme of the charity is 'Hope' but I can't think of anything to go with that theme. So any ideas is greatly appreciated. anything cute/awesome/cool..whatever.
Are you going to use fondant/gumpaste or all butter cream decorations?
When you said hope I think the color gold, butterflies, and happy stuff. What about something like this?
How about something along these lines: http://www.lindyscakes.co.uk/shop/Funky-Owl-Small-Sugarcraft-Cutter-Lindys.html
