Vegan MoFo: Birthday Cupcakes

So I promised baking pics and here they are!

Today is Daddy Alien's 60th birthday! And we are having a big fancy dress party tonight to celebrate and I spent all of this morning decorating the 48 cupcakes I baked yesterday! (There are 3 boxes in total but I only took pics of two as it still shows all the flavours). All recipes from or tweaked versions of recipes from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World.

Rosewater & Pistachio & 'Elvis'

Basic chocolate filled with cherry pie filling, vanilla buttercream, a glace cherry and chocolate sprinkles on top and basic chocolate with mint buttercream and a mint fondant chocolate.

Up close & personal shots:

Mint choc

Chocolate cherry (black forest)

Pistachio rosewater

Elvis (banana, with pb frosting)
Gotta go - I got a hotel to decorate!
