Spring Cupcakes in Frankfurt

12 Apr

Spring has arrived in Frankfurt. The cherry blossom trees are fragrant and in full bloom, the sun is shining giving your skin an early April glow, the banks of the Main River are packed full joggers, friends BBQing and people chilling out on blankets in the grass. And alongside all of these spring joys are spring cupcakes in my kitchen of course!

So when a friend of mine asked me to bake some cupcakes, I knew that these cupcake babies had to welcome in spring in all its glory.

On these cupcakes I combined two things I have wanted to try out for ages.

1. Using crushed Oreos to mimic ground/soil.
2. The Wonderful World of Royal Icing.

There so many wonderfully talented and creative ladies out in the blogging world and after getting inspired by their spring creations, I just couldn’t resist trying out my hand with some of their designs and tricks of the trade.

Here are my Oreo-soil cupcakes with carrots and grass inspired by CocoCakes in Vancouver. Her style is one of kind and every time she accomplishes this under-stated beauty in all her creations that is executed through simplicity. So inspiring.

The next lady which finally pushed me over the edge into taking the plunge into royal icing and sugar cookies is Callye at The Sweet Adventures of Sugar Belle. As soon as laid my eyes on these super adorable bunny ear sugar cookies, I knew that I would finally be making sugar cookies. I mean how could I resist? Callye is just so purely creative and I love that. She has recently taken sugar cookies to the next level and made awesome 3-D creations like these sugar cookie nail polish jars. I mean, her creativity is amazing and she shares so many tricks of the trade which is so wonderful for beginners like me who muster up the courage only after viewing the tutorial 17 times. Her great work never ceases to amaze me and I loved that I was able to combine sugar cookies with cupcakes!

The last design was mine. Yay! I am sure I have seen grass piping all over the Internet but hey, the daisy and the ladybug TOGETHER on grass piping, yeah, that was ALL me. I bet it’s been done a hundred times, I know! But hey, maybe not yet in Germany? Oder (or) in Frankfurt? Maybe I am the first! Either way they are damn cute!! Shame about the lighting and shadows though!

Enjoy spring and there will be more spring cupcakes to come!
