50 shades of blue… (Cupcakes)

4 Comments

Looking at the title and image, you may be wondering two things. Firstly, what do cupcakes have to do with the best-selling but quite inappropriate novel by E. L. James? And secondly, what is a cupcake doing in a teacup? 

A real teacake!

I’m going to answer both. Today, whilst shopping, I found a packet of Dr Oetker’s food colouring gels and thought they would be a better answer to my cry for colour than the old fashioned sour tasting liquids. The packet said that it would take 12 or so drops to make the perfect dark blue I wanted. It lied. After going through at least fifty shades of blue and using all the azure gel; I was left with this mockery of navy. I soon cheered up, as to my delight, I found a lovely treasure of my Grandmother’s and decided it would serve as a nice holder for all of my cakes. 

With icing as runny as honey!

One final photo for you guys today:

Anyone for a spot of tea?

  1. Beautiful cup and saucer. In a sense the blue icing works with the hues within the decals.
