Plastic icing, dinosaurs, googly eyes & pugs.

October 18, 2010

On Sunday Shane and I had 24 cupcakes to decorate for Gina, they were for her nephew David’s birthday party. We dyed some plastic icing (like marzipan) and then stamped out “Happy Birthday David”. Then we decorated them with glitter and dinosaurs and sprinkles and wobbly eyes. We were quite chuffed with the way they turned out. What do you do you guys think?

*My only advice when dying your own plastic icing is wear gloves. By the end of it my hands looked like 2 pink squids wearing a wedding ring.

Gina came past to fetch them and she bought with her Charlotte her teacup pug that is a few weeks old. Oh my word I had to stop myself from squashing it into a ball and icing it for tea. It’s sooooo cute! I want one.

    Where did she get the pig??? I’m considering getting one. That one is so small I thought it was a puppy!

    …I’m sorry. That was terrible. I went to have a second look and realised it was indeed a puppy PUG. Hahah pretend I didn’t say that…. 😀

    Oh my goodness that dog is so small weren’t you worried that you’d accidentally put him on a cupcake and sell him to someone to eat?!

  • Louise October 19, 2010 at 7:43 pm

    Sorry, ‘her’, not ‘him’, I bet Charlotte is a girl… 🙂 x

    Oh Em Geee!! that is like the most adorable thing I’ve ever seen….
    please – where can I get one?

  • gina October 20, 2010 at 11:15 am

    Oh wow Ange! She is famous my little Charlotte. I think she looks like a hungry hippo. For Sophia- the breeders name is Nettie. She is in Parys. Her number is 084 840 4269. But i have to warn you, Charlotte came with 2 parasites and an eye infection and was SO sick for about a week. But after 3 trips to the vet (and a MASSIVE bill) she is 100%… and the sweetest, goodest little girl… YAY… PS. Cupcakes were amazing!
