Passionfruit cupcakes for Ange's 40th birthday


 I wanted to share with you some fun cupcakes I made for my neighbour Ange's birthday. When we were invited up the hill to join her for a birthday BBQ, I asked can I bring anything?. "No just yourselves" was her reply. Well I was brought up better than that, so I had to take something. I made passionfruit cupcakes, using Fresh-as passionfruit powder, added to vanilla cupcake batter,  I also flavoured my buttercream (under the fondant), with the same powder. The hot pink fondant icing is Satin ice pink, straight from the tub.  I cut the zebra design cupcake toppers from Wilton sugar sheets, using my Cricut cake machine with the designs cut from the Martha Stewart birthday cake cartridge. The 12 cupcakes are placed in a 12 hole cupcake box, with pink tissue, just to fill the box up and make them look a bit special.

I taste tested these - of course!.  And the passionfruit was sooooo good!. If you haven't tried the Fresh-as powders yet. i urge you to grab some and try them out, they have so many uses.
