A "Thank You" gift

These were made as a thank you to a friend who has helped me out
while I had to visit the hospital.
Vanilla sponge cupcakes with swirls of rosewater buttercream
and topped with hearts & flower chocolates
with decorative chocolate transfers.
Vanilla sponge cupcake with Chocolate Ganache swirls
(my first attempt at making ganache!)
and topped with a single Pink Blossom made of fondant.

Faerie Flowers Cupcake

Any little Tinkerbell fan would love this cupcake topped with sweet flowers
with faerie dust sprinkled all over. Unfortunately I didn't have any edable glitter,
only the Magic Sparkles Flakes,
so I ground them down a little and....
faerie dust!!!
