Pretty Embossed Cupcakes

I recently discovered a new online shop to fritter away money on cake related goods and last week spent a rainy lunch break at work doing just that. I came across Purple Cupcakes by chance but found that though they stock a limited range of products they had just what I had been looking for. I placed my order and two days later it arrived, complete with a mini Lindt chocolate. I now have some new daisy cutters, a drying mat for my daisies, two embossing mats and most importantly, a set of mini alphabet embossers. These have been very hard to find.

Now that I was all tooled up I just needed an excuse to bake fancy cupcakes. My niece helped me out by turning ten at the weekend and inviting all her cousins round for a birthday breakfast.

The embossing mats were easy to use and left a perfect imprint every time. The letters were fiddly but I guess you can't expect anything else when working with something that small. Purple Cupcakes were a good find and I shall definitely shop with them again. They did send me chocolate after all.
