Not my usual request for a cupcake themed design, and I must admit I asked for help in design elements from friends.
So I broke it down to the basics, gluttony, it had to be a thick layer of ganache with a flake on top, with a glimmer of gold glitter.
Next was Wrath, for this I used design elements to signify the devil.
Greed – I always think of money, not sure why, when it greed can be attributed it lots of different ways in life.
Lust – Was an idea from the lady who wanted the cupcakes.
She wanted red lips on a plain background.
Envy – Again was the ladies choice, simply green lettering on a plain background.
Sloth – for this I think of lazy, so I decided to make a conch potato, in it’s most literal of sense.
A potato on a couch.
Last but not least, Pride – I asked for help on this one from my friends. I asked what Pride meant to them. I actual got quiet a few different answers. But I leant more to Pride in your appearance. So I made fondant version of a mirror. In hindsight I would love to make this again, still a mirror design, but would put more detail in it.’
To finish the seven deadly sin cupcake tower, I also made a 6 inch top cake.
I apologize for the quality of the photo, I was rushing to get everything boxed and forgot to do my normal photo shoot of the entire display.
This had to be (at that stage), the strangest request in cupcake designs. I say at that sage, as you’ll see in the coming weeks, the cakes are definitely not the usual tier cakes.
Until next time, happy baking 🙂
