Marines Cupcakes

These cupcakes are an order I made for a lovely lady (Jo Sowerby) who is also

a follower of this blog and my facebook page :o)

She wanted some cupcakes for her friends son who has

joined the Royal Marines!

I usually make the sugar cap badges from a mould but unfortunately

wasn't able to get a badge in time for the order,

so I made one which is handcut and crafted....freehand,

it's a little larger than the actual badge size

but I am really pleased with the result!

and hopefully Jo and the newly Royal Marine will be too!

This cupcake is Lemon Sponge,

with a generous portion of Lemon Buttercream,

covered with a circle blanket of sugarpaste in dark green

to represent the "Green Beret" and topped with the edible

Royal Marine Badge.

The other cupcakes are of the same flavours,

but covered in a camouflage designed sugarpaste!

Thank you for the order Jo! x

I absolutely love making "Military Cakes"

and I have another Military cake order for early next year

I can't say anything about them yet,

but they are going to be really special...... so I can't wait to make those!
