I am gettin super duper excited for Jim's 21st birthday now... I very nearly have everything for his cake, but couldn't wait until it all arrived. I thought I'd share with you the sorts of goodies I've bought so far, since it's not really the norm you'd find in your kitchen cupboards.
As I've already said before, I'm going to be making a cupcake tier cake for him. He has a blue/black/silver theme going on for the decorations and such like, so I've bought things to go along with the theme. My mum thinks that the colours are a bit gash together, but I like them :)
- A 23-space cupcake tier stand, £12.00 from Amazon. I've found these elsewhere for more than double that price so snap them up quickly - they're the perfect item for displaying your yummy muffins and cupcakes.
- Silver wire. £2 from Lawsons. All will be revealed in about a month's time :D
- Blue, black and white icing. £2-3 each from Lawsons. Ready to roll, I'm going to cut little shapes out of the icing to stick on the cupcakes. Then I'll use writing icing to write little messages like 'Happy 21st Birthday' and 'Jim' on the cakes.
- Large circular silver cake base. £4 from Lawsons. I'm going to put the cake stand on this so that I get an extra tier out of the cupcakes - more for everyone! :D Plus it's all about presentation, haha...
Stay tuned, this cake is going to be amazing :D
