Cake of the Week: Empire State Building Cupcakes

Well technically this week's cake of the week are actually cupcakes, but these were really cool cupcakes so I thought they deserved some recognition.

The client who ordered these cupcakes was having a New York City themed fete and wanted cupcakes depicted an iconic Big Apple structure. Naturally, The Empire State Building was a perfect choice.

A few days in advance I made outlines of the famous landmark in gumpaste. After a few days of drying I sketched the building itself, by hand, on every single piece. It took me forever, but on the bright side, I finally got to see District 9. Good movie, by the way!

After I baked the cupcakes, I frosted them with some yummy vanilla butter cream and airbrushed each cupcake half gray and half blue, the colors of the party. I stuck a building in each one, snapped some photos, boxed them up and went to bed. It was four in the morning!

Well it bake to work for me!

Thanks for tuning in. Until next time...
