Modern Art Cupcakes

Modern_Art_Cupcakes_01_1

Hands down these are my favourite cupcakes to date. I got a request for ‘Modern Art’ themed cupcakes for a friend of ours’ daughter to take to school. ACTUAL dream come true. Not only did I finally manage to put my Art History degree to good use, but I got to do it through the medium of cake!

I opted for France and although my country was appalling on the performance front, there was enough brie baguettes, red wine and eclairs to keep everyone happy. I also took along these macarons that were all dressed up to party too. Fact: Sprinkles make everything look more fun. I made these using my fave macaron recipe coloured
