Chocolate Wildflowers 60th Cupcakes

The brief for this 60th Birthday cake was pretty specific, the birthday girl loves chocolate, loves strong colours and loves native flowers and was happy to oblige.

Cutting cake - Classic Chocolate cake torted with dark chocolate
glaze, and finished with the same glaze. Styled with freestyle chocolate Australian Wildflowers, gum leaves and just a touch of green edible glitter

Cupcakes - Classic Chocolate & Vanilla, topped with dark chocolate glaze, styled with
freestyle chocolate Australian Wildflowers, gum leaves and just a touch of green edible glitter.

sorry about that W! but thanks for visiting anyway.

the flowers are made by piping chocolate outlines, filling in with coloured chocolate and one dry/set flipping them over.

Hi marni thanks for stopping by.
