Well, here is the first official first post for Ink & Batter!
I'm starting with one of the books I've had in my list to make inspired cupcakes for quite a while! Splintered by A.G. Howard! Since it is a very creepy & a bit Burtonian reimagining of Alice in Wonderland, I've made some more typical Alice items and some that are straight from the book!
I chose green tea cupcakes (recipe from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over The World) with cream cheese icing, and used green cupcake liners to match the cover of the book!
As you can see, there are some bugs, the ones that Alyssa doesn't want to hear, some flowers cause you can't forget the creepy flowers of Wonderland, a key that is important to the story, a skateboard for the "skate girl", the clock that ticks, teapot & cup for when Alyssa has tea with her mum and a lil faery for Gossamer!
What say you guys? I had a blast working on this one, modeling with fondant always reminds me of when I was a lil girl playing with plasticine!
Stay tuned for more Ink & Batter cupcakes next week!
Oh my gosh they're gorgeous! Thanks so much for using Splintered as your first yummy post! I am both honored and hungry. LOL. So, who go to help you eat them all? *jealous*ReplyDelete
My nephews, my postlady and my co-workers! Thanks a lot, Anita! I'm so happy you like them!Delete
Unhinged will be next week btw! ;)
THESE ARE PERFECT!ReplyDelete
*steals them and eats them all*
*grins massively* So happy you love them, Rashika!!Delete
Pili these cupcakes are beautiful!! I wanna eat them all right now! I love this new feature and I can't wait to see what else you come up with!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Ky! This new thing is making me so inspired and happy!Delete
Love them!! I can't wait to see Unhinged next time. They are very beautiful and look to pretty to eat! Though the green tea sounds yum :-)ReplyDelete
The green tea cupcakes are delish, Kristen! So happy you love them!!Delete
PILI!!!! I know I said this last time, but these are AMAZING!!!!! You are so talented! They're all absolutely gorgeous, but I think the tiny tea set is my favorite. I just want to keep it forever, but I don't have that kind of restraint, so if it was in front of me I'd likely have to eat it:) Can't wait to see what you come up with next!ReplyDelete
Thank you so much, Jenny! I had a blast modeling everything! I didn't have a mold for the tea set, so I did it by hand, but I think it looks pretty great!Delete
I can't wait to share all the ideas that I get!! =D
They are amazing! I think I would just stare at the them... I don't think I could ever eat those. Do you actually eat them, because I wouldn't know where to start! Hehe. My favourite of the lot is the clock or the faery, but I can't choose between them! Can't wait til next week. Lovely post, Pili! :) Happy Baking! :PReplyDelete
Thank you so much, Emma!! I never eat them, I usually give them away and people sometimes eat them and sometimes keep for decoration! =DDelete
That is the coolest thing I think I've ever seen. I'm not going to pretend I've even gotten around to reading the post yet I'm just looking at the cakes! They're AMAZING! XxReplyDelete
Hehehehehe, the whole point of the post is the cakes!! The rest of it is explaining what the designs are for those who haven't read the book! ;)Delete
Thanks a lot, Emily!
Ooo, the one with the ladybug is my favorite! So fun, and I bet they were tasty to eat as well. I love this idea for a feature, as well as the name! Ink and Batter is perfect. :) I can't wait to see more photos of your REBEL BELLE ones, too.ReplyDelete
Wendy @ The Midnight Garden
Thank you, Wendy!! The Rebel Belle ones will be up on June! =DDelete
Ink & Batter as a name was suggested by Sam from Realm of Fiction!
I got super excited when I saw your tweet and rushed right over and oh my gosh these are amazing! Seriously, you're such an awesome cake maker! You definitely got all of the key elements on the cupcakes and they're so pretty <333333ReplyDelete
The one with the teapot and the teacup has to be my favourite though. It's so cute. I can't wait for the Unhinged ones! :D
Thanks a lot, Samantha!Delete
I have such a blast plotting and making the cupcakes, and I love seeing that people love them! =D
They look beautiful and yummy!ReplyDelete
Thank you, Deanna!!Delete
OH MY GOSH THIS IS SIMPLY AMAZING!!! How do you even do this? CAN I AHVE ONE AND STUFF MY FACE NOW?ReplyDelete
Thanks Nikki! And yes, you can stuff your face with them all!!Delete
Oh, don't mind me while I fly over to Spain and EAT THEM ALL. They look so good! Fantastic job, Pili, seriously. The detail is so intricate and precise. You are quite talented! :DReplyDelete
Alyssa @ The Eater of Books!
Thanks A LOT, Alyssa!! I wish I could send them all to all my blogger friends all over the world, I'm afraid my neighbours and co-workers are gonna be sick of them soon!Delete
They are all soo cute! I can't wait to see the next batch. You are so talented Pili.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Andreanna!!Delete
YAY :D This looks AWESOME sweetie. <3 I love the cupcakes :D *And so jealous, as I can't make/design/draw anything, lol :D* I CANNOT wait to see more of you Ink & Batter posts. <3 Want them all right away, lol :)ReplyDelete
I thought I wasn't artistic at all, but apparently baking and decorating IS my kinda thing!Delete
Thanks a lot sweetie! I actually feel like posting all the cupcakes all the time, but I made myself a schedule and must stick to it! ;)
I knew they were going to be great but these are UNBELIEVABLE! And while they do indeed look delicious it's your attention to "Alice/Splintered" details that truly blowing me away. Pili I don't know if I can handle see even more of these delicious look and beautiful creations!ReplyDelete
Thank you so much, Octavia!! Get yourself ready because I have so many more features already scheduled!Delete
OMG these cupcakes are amazing, yummy, artistic and literary too! My favourite is your teapot detail, it's almost too pretty to eat! You have a talent girlfriend! I have shared on Twitter :)ReplyDelete
Jeann @ Happy Indulgence
Thank you SO MUCH Jeann!! I'm gonna be blushing now!!Delete
These look so stunning! I'd never want to eat those, I'd display them :D You're really talented! I could never pull this off at all! :DReplyDelete
Thank you so much, Ula! And yeah, I give them to other people when I run out of space to keep them, cause I cannot eat them!Delete
Oh my goodness these are fantastic! They're so pretty! I don't know how you could eat them, I think I'd probably frame them or something.ReplyDelete
Thank you so much!!Delete
I love these! I want to eat them all! So great. You need to work for a publisher to do book release parties. :-)ReplyDelete
Thank you, Lisa! Working for publishers to do book release parties would be the bomb, but since I live in Spain, that's an impossible dream!Delete
I say you're hella talented. Not only do they look delicious, but they're almost so pretty you don't want to! Great job!ReplyDelete
Thanks Christina! I can never eat them, so I give them away to people! ;)Delete
Amazing!! I am looking forward to the Unhinged batch. :) Great idea for a blog btw. :)ReplyDelete
Thank you very much!!Delete
I wish i could eat those. I doubt i would though they are to pretty! You are truly talented!!ReplyDelete
Thank you so much, Brittany!!Delete
