My friend asked me to make some squashed witch cupcakes (she’d seen a picture online of some) and I was more than happy to fulfil her request!
I had to make 50 of these bad boys, so it was a production line in the kitchen to get these done! I made the legs from white sugarpaste/fondant and left for a week to dry thoroughly. I then painted the stocking stripes with black food colouring.
The ruby slippers were made from red sugarpaste.
To assemble the Wicked Witch of the East Cupcakes, I covered round pieces of card with silver foil (should have used gold foil for the yellow brick road!) and having piped grey buttercream around the edge of each cupcake, dumped them upside down on top of the pair of legs and shoes.
When all the Wizard of Oz Cupcakes were sat together, we all thought they looked awesome – my friend was over the moon with them, and that, in turn, makes me over the moon too! The theme of the party was musicals, and the cakes did the theme justice!
The 18th cupcakes were nestled in between the squashed witch with the ruby slippers cupcakes and as a cake maker made me feel proud to look at my creations all together. It’s not often I get to see my cakes set up after they leave me, but as I delivered this to my friend, I was able to help set them out and see the end result.
This cake and cupcake order was a labour of love – lots of hours went into making the different elements and the making of all the cakes, but when I see them I have a great sense of pride and achievement!
