A friend of mine held a Smurf themed birthday party to celebrate her daughter’s first birthday. I was pleased that she asked me to bake some cupcakes in the spirit of Smurfs. I pondered how I would decorate and in discussing with her, came up with four designs to make.
The first batch to be decorated were the lemon cupcakes. These were going to be made to look like Smurfy mushroom houses. Red buttercream icing with white spots. I was so happy the red shade come out this perfect vibrant shade. I was worried because initially it was almost a neon pink. It did take a many drops of gel icing colour and allowing it to sit overnight to get this shade.
For the white spots, I melted some Lindt white chocolate and made little chips.
Last but not least, my vanilla flavoured purple flower cupcake. The prettiest of the bunch I think. I love looking at this one the most.
My friend had the food table all set up with cupcake stands. We put out the cupcakes alongside the Smurf Mushroom house cake that she made. She did a terrific job making this smash cake for her daughter. Look at the little Smurfs sitting beside the house!
Happy 1st Birthday Baby M! Hope you had as much fun as I had making these delightful cupcakes for you. =)
