*Sparkly* Princess Crowns!

This order for the Bakeshop was for a variety of baked goodies with a princess theme and a touch of sparkle!
Here's what we decided to do.....

Cake Pops 
Covered in pink chocolate, topped with pink embossed princess crowns and splinkled with sparkly 'crystal' sugar.

Mini Cupcakes
These miniature vanilla cupcakes were topped with a generous swirl of pink buttercream and finished off with pink embossed crowns, to match the cake pops, and flowers.

Vanilla princess crown shaped cookies were embossed with the same pattern as the crowns on the cake pops and mini cupcakes to tie in perfectly with the theme. A sprinkle of glitter added a great *sparkle*!

Sofia turns 1!

The Bakeshop's newest collaboration with events company The Cutest Party on the Block (TCP on the B) was Sofia's first birthday party. And it was an event fit for a perfect little princess.
The Bakeshop did all the baked goodies for this party so it was a very busy weekend for us!

The Birthday Cake: A two tier vanilla sponge ruffle cake. The ruffles were created with vanilla buttercream.

Ribbon roses made out of fuchsia fondant....

Buntings played a big role in the decor of the party, so we decided to add a mini version on the cake. The patterned paper used to create the large buntings was also used to create these mini ones, so it was a perfect match...

Mini Bird Cage Cake: At the Bakeshop we are obsessed with bird cage cakes! Sofia's party was the perfect event for us to create on of these whimsical beauties...
The vintage look of the cake really complimented the look of the party and we were very happy with the result. Have a look and let us know what you think!

The cake was chocolate sponge covered in a layer of vanilla buttercream...

Vanilla Cake Pops: covered in pink chocolate and finished off with fuchsia and white flowers. 

Marshmallow Pops: A new favourite at the Bakeshop! the perfect addition to any sweet table!

Cupcakes: Patterned paper used in the decor of the party was used to make these mini flags which were the perfect topper for the cupcakes. 

We're loving these pink and blue cupcake cases that we found for this event. So Cute!

Here is a sneak peak of the decor done by The Cutest Party on the Block. Keep an eye out on their blog for more pictures of the event to be posted soon.
