After reading the title of this post, you might think I’ve gone completely mad, but I’m not…! So why did I make these cupcakes precisely in summer? The reason is that I was told to bring some home-made St Valentine’s Cupcakes to a job interview for a creative position in a well-known bakery. They suggested the topic, I just put my imagination!
I tried to be pretty creative. All the figurines were completely hand-crafted (I didn’t use any mould) and fully edible, of course
The first cupcake was a rich chocolate one with a marbled vintage clock on top. The main hours were replaced by hearts and you could read at the bottom “IT’S LOVE O’CLOCK”, written with royal icing.
The second one was a coffee flavoured cupcake with a cup on top and some spilled coffee forming a heart-shaped spill. I also added some chocolate coffee beans around.
The third cupcake was a red velvet one. I used the cream cheese as a cloud, which was run through by Cupido. Poor Cupido! He was hit by one of his own arrows and then he felt in love!! His feet are so cute, aren’t they?
The last one was a pure vanilla cupcake. A tiny rose was growing around a heart. It was like a metaphor: “GROW YOUR LOVE”.
I hope you like them and you get inspired for next St Valetine’s Day or any other romantic celebration : – )
See you soon.
