My work was celebrating not, one, or two, but THREE birthdays this month! So I made 3 different themed cupcakes to fit their different personalities. All these cupcakes are chocolate with basic buttercream frosting and all the decorations are made out of fondant, but for flower stamens, those aren't edible, same with the metallic pearls, but the pearlize white ones are edible.
For Andrea's cupcakes, her favorite Disney character is Tinkerbell, so I made the Tinkerbell slippers, her magic wand, and fairy wings. I brushed on some silver luster dust on the slippers for some magical touch to it as well. For Audrey's cupcakes, she is also a Disney fanatic and her favorite characters are Bambi and Thumper. However, when trying to portray any well known and recognizable classic Disney characters, you must be SPOT-ON with your design otherwise it won't look right. So instead of trying to go on that route, I went with the symbolism route and stuck Bambi and Thumper into the cupcakes with Bambi's tail sticking out, and depicted the popular butterfly on his tail. As for Thumper, the scene I remember most about his is his large thumping feet and him being in the flower bed.
For Jacob's cupcakes, he is the most different from the two, and his biggest hobby currently is playing World of Warcraft (WOW)...and he had a long history of being part of the Alliance, but then became a traitor apparently and join the Hord! All you WOW fans out there, please go easy on my with my designs for this because I am a "noob" when it comes to these games...haha. But here they are, the simplified logos for the Alliance (the yellow and blue logo) and Hord the red one), and xBox 360 game controllers because he really wants one, so hopefully this will get him that much closer to getting one =).
