A few weeks ago I received an invitation to follow a workshop to make cupcakes at my company’s head office. Obviously I immediately excepted the invitation as it doesn’t happen every day as usually it are work-related workshops 🙂 . Our Sensei for the evening was the lovely Karolien from cups ‘n cakes, who is a real pro, if you look at her website you see that she creates the funniest creatures.
Making cupcakes might seem easy at first, but I must admit that it really takes more patience en craftsmanship than one would think 🙂 . The theme of yesterday’s workshop was ‘Sinterklaas’ as you can see on the above picture. Step by step we got guided into the world of cupcake making and learned how to make a worthy replica of the original cupcakes. (and i learned that I needed patience)
Making cupcakes or better, decorating them was a first for me, it really fell like being back in kinder garden playing with Play Doh 🙂 … Funny stuff :-)! My actual result well, I wouldn’t call it a real replica, my creatures seemed to be under the influence of some kind of drug (especially my Sinterklaas, he looks like a creature in Spongebob squarpanths)… You be the judge .
On the picture below you can see on the right the original and at the left the one I made, but I think you’d already guessed that 🙂
My best cupcake of the evening was without any doubt the one with the roses! At first I really thought that I did a great job, this until I looked around and saw what wonderful things my colleagues had made!! I think some of them are really gifted (or just have a lot of patience). Really, I saw one person making a mermaid, little ducks, hearts, etc… At some point it started looking like Santa clause’ north pole workshop 🙂
I really had an amazing night with lots of laughs! I can really recommend it to everybody who wants to have a fun team event or learn to make workshops to do so and contact cups ‘n cakes!!
