This weekend I had the pleasure of creating a cupcake tower for a very special anniversary of 50 years. It's such a beautiful thing and some would say rare to experience...
Most couples can't believe it themselves :)
Congratulations Pattie's parents, Pat & Rufus Goodland, for reaching the golden 50.
There were three flavours: Classic v, Classic c and Spiced Carrot. The decor on Classic c was a violet flower made from gumpaste. To make these, use this cutter, and the shell tool to create the texture on the petals.
Spiced carrot had gold "50" medallions made from gumpaste (the white circles) and royal icing painted with gold dust.
And Classic c had gold sugar...
As a tribute to my previous post on vintage candy shops below is a photo of some candy from the 60s. It was part of Pattie's planning to have a buffet with candies found in the 60s. Do you remember these?:

    CHALLENGE ENDED.
    UPDATE/ AUG 30: I was able to maintain this challenge from August 2011 to about March which to me is pretty impressive in itself no? I admit I was getting discouraged and then on AUGUST 1st I WON a contest. I won VIP tickets to a concert. Was it worth a year of this, maybe not, but I still feel victorious :)
