Mother's Day Cupcakes!

How adorable are these cases! They're silicone so you can re-use them. I ordered them here My favourite thing about these cakes is the edible 'soil' created by bashing up the outer shells of oreo cookies! It's virtually indistinguishable from actual soil and really rewarding to make as what else are you supposed to do with the oreo filling other than eat it!? I formed a sort of mound of chocolate buttercream with a palette knife and then rolled it in the bowl of cookie crumbs until it was fully coated. Make sure you do this as soon as you've iced them so that the icing is still adhesive. You may have to use your fingers to lightly press a little more on to any patchy areas. All of the extra decoration was made using ready made icing. I used a cocktail stick to elevate the little bumblebee and also made some gardening-esque signs to label the different vegetables and inserted these into the cakes with cocktail sticks too. This is a nice way to work in a 'Happy Mother's Day' or any other message you like if you don't want to interfere with the actual cakes. The watering can tragically lost its spout pre-photo shoot so unfortunately that one ruins the overall effect, sorry! x
