Welcome to the blog, Daisy Cakes!

The warm weather has finally arrived and what better way is there to celebrate than a set of glorious, colourful picnic-themed cupcakes?!

I am thrilled to welcome Sarah Bray to Mr Baker’s Blog with her first ever tutorial! Sarah’s cute and adorable Miniature Picnic Cupcake Toppers would be perfect for any spring- or summer-time celebration and she assures me that they are much easier than they look!

Sarah is an award-winning cake artist and tutor from Wokingham in Berkshire. A former teacher (like me!), Sarah had always enjoyed all things artistic and making cakes was something she used to do for fun. It wasn’t until someone approached her to contribute to a pamper evening at the school (where she sold out of everything) that she realised that she was actually pretty darn good at it. Eventually she started her business, Daisy Cakes and, as she continued to refine her skills, Sarah realised she really enjoyed making cupcakes and in particular miniatures.

I am delighted that Sarah has agreed to create her first tutorial exclusively for Mr Baker’s Blog and I am confident we’ll be seeing a lot more tutorials from this hugely-talented lady!

You can check out the full tutorial here…
