Idea 2. Use Edible Glitter!
Edible glitter is awesome, and loads of fun to use. So instead of the usual scones or cookies, make some cupcakes and go to town with the decoration! Use any recipe you like. I love Loraine Pascale’s cupcake recipe from her book Baking Made Easy and used that for my cakes, and added my own flair to the decoration!
My Sister’s boyfriend christened my attempts as ‘The Only Way Is Essex Cupcakes’ and that kind of makes sense. They are done-up-to-the-nines, attention grabbing, over the top cakes and I think I’ll find glitter in places where I least expect for a long time to come!
So try your own glittery cakes. I love http://www.edible-glitter.co.uk for the glitter. They have so many vivid colours. My favourites are Rose, Sapphire and White.
