Vintage button cupcakes

My mum is an antique dealer and on the weekend I helped her at the vintage textile fair, held at Alexandra park raceway in Auckland. I've grown up in her world, she opened her shop in Kamo, 30 years ago. She closed the shop a couple of years ago and is now semi retired. Tommorrow she is hosting a group of ladies with a passion for glass buttons, that will peruse some of the buttons she bought back from the textile fair.

Cupcakes are chocolate, with a cointreau chocolate icing. The rainbow finish on the large button is made to imitate, the highly desirable "carnival glass" buttons.
