Flower Cupcakes for Aunty Rita

I had a great day at my Aunty Rita's house making tradition Italian cuisine, the way my grandmother;my "Nonna" used to make. On the menu for our masterclass was eggplant croquettes, (melanzane fritte) and whitebait fritters.(nunnata)
For this occasion i made some mud cupcakes and a mini mud cake covered in fondant. i made fondant and gum paste flowers, and put vanilla butter cream on the cupcakes.

I was in a purple flowery mood, I tried to go for a lilac but ended up with purple! Story of my life!

The white bait fritters and the eggplant fritters.... the eggplant are waiting to be fried in this picture...drool.Such an awesome day , there were many sweets and savouries on offer!
next post I'll show you how i did those flowers and hopefully do a better
