This request for a bachelorette cake was changed approximately 5 million times. From cake to cupcakes back to cake back to cupcakes. From gentle pastel coloured flowers and a golden ‘Hen Party’ sign to ‘Little Mermaid but not the Disney one, please’. I was secretly glad we settled for cupcakes as they are, after all, my speciality and I very much enjoy doing even the fiddliest decorations. As it was a summer party, we went with a piña colada flavour – it was extremely difficult to resist eating all the pineapple cupcakes and the coconut buttercream frosting while decorating them. They were so much fun to make, and don’t they look pretty?
