Chinese New Year cupcakes

I should be shot for posting this blog in April. Business has been picking up and I've been very busy juggling my duties. Hopefully most of you have been visiting my Facebook page, for more up to date photos and postings.

I designed these CNY sets according to traditional symbols usually seen during the festivities, ie. mandarin oranges, plum blossoms, and the 'fook' character 福.

All decorations are handcrafted from fondant. The 'fook' character is piped in royal icing and then painted with edible gold paint.

The mandarin oranges are sitting on a circle of chocolate fondant.
