Fishy cupcakes

cupcakes SPCA 2018 fish2I saw these cupcakes somewhere on the internet and I thought they looked like so much fun. I used Smarties (a Canadian version of M&Ms) because the colours are much more varied.
These silly fish cupcakes flew (swam?) out the door on SPCA Cupcake Day. So happy to be able to help out.

Gone fishing

fishing cakeMarcel is lucky enough to live along the St. Lawrence River and goes fishing as often as he can. He fishes for perch, pickerel, bass, and occasionally he gets pike.
For his 50th birthday, his wife Lori thought a cake that showed his passion for fishing would be just the thing.
I hope Marcel got to go fishing on his birthday and that he snagged a big one!

Rug hooked fish

fish Hooked rugA friend of mine was celebrating a big birthday and her husband asked me to make her a cake as a surprise. Terry is a rug hooker and one of her unfinished designs was this fish. James asked me to translate it onto a cake for her. I tried to make the chocolate background look a bit like burlap and then tried “hooking” the icing in a stitch-like manner. Terry loved it and was very surprised at seeing her design made out of buttercream.
