So I was at a christening this saturday. Decided on making a cake and some cupcakes. Took some pictures of the baking process and voila I made a post about it.

For the cake base I used this recipe from an old post. Putting the chocolate frosting and ganache inside the cake. For the outside of it and the top coat on the cupcakes I tried something new, Buttercream frosting. I really liked working with that on the cake, but beware, It’s a freakishly big butt load amount of icing sugar in it. It gets really sweet really fast, just a heads up! For the cupcakes I just picked a random recipe on google xD Nothing magical or anything. For the Photos I snapped my 50mm lens on the camera and for light I used the sun until it got dark, then mounted a little IKEA Jansjö Led lamp on the table.


Oh and yeah, Couldn’t find any flags to put on the cupcakes, so I made my self some of my own.

To decorate the cake I used a icing syringe and a pastry bag, also bought some candy decorations.


It looks a bit weird but hey, It was my first time making buttercream frosting, so I’m going to blame it on that. xD
