This website, is another piece of puzzle to the beginning of me having the dream of a CUPCAKE SHOP! Vanilla Sprinkles is going to be some thing that brings joy and smiles to everyone, from something you eat. I want to show people the art of cake and cupcakes, not just through social media and YouTube, but personally eventually. I would love for you to follow and support me through this journey, and lets hope a bit cake can make some of the world smile. My favourite quote helps to describe what I mean.
“Always take a smile and a cupcake where ever you go.”
I hope this bring a smile to your face, or I do at least in the future.
Good Afternoon Guys, Long time no blog. I’m sorry I haven’t wrote anything for the last few weeks, life has just been crazy busy! This weekend, for once I actually had time, and felt inspired to experiment.
So to answer the question “How do you finish off a good weekend?” well would be of course to bake, but not just to bake something I have before but something totally different. I experimented with two of everyone’s favourite things Brownies and Cookies.
Miss LozzyBeth’s take on Brookies!
This creation is incredible, it tastes extraordinary. I’m not usually the one to sit eat lots of cookie dough or brownies, but this would be so worth the sickness you would get from the taste of these to die for brookies. It has so much goodness, in them it is both decadent and chocolatey. I honestly can’t wait to show you all a video, that will be next in line.
To answer, the other part of the question, “why was my weekend so good?”may have something to do with this giant ice cream! A vlog to come soon!!!
Well, isn’t it a good day to fall in love on. Yeah it’s Valentine’s Day here in Aus, but there isn’t much left of it, so it’s a good job I have already found my love. I would like to announce to our little community, I have fallen in love with Wilton #2D tip.
This tip is the best thing invented for the perfect rosette. I thought my rosettes where pretty good looking, but now with this tip, I couldn’t be more happy with them. This tip make such a perfect swirl, it overlaps and falls in just the right spot, to give it that more realistic look.
This tip, was on sale and was a lucky bargain find. I can’t believe I had never seen this one before, I’m so happy. My favourite style of piping is the rosette, so if I can make it look better, it makes me so much happier!
I bought a few other tips, on that day too, which I’m not completely happy with yet, I just need more practice!
Love is finding the perfect tip!
P.S Check out Instagram and Facebook, for a little video!
LOVE IS THE AIR…….It’s that time of year were the people that are in love, rub it in the faces who don’t have love. Like me! This year I have made some gorgeous cupcakes for both the haters and the lovers.

This is my favourite chocolate cake recipe. It is a simple sponge, which is light, fluffy and perfect with buttercream or ganache. This is just one of the basic recipes, that you will need for another recipe in the future!
Thank goodness for the school holidays, it means for me, so much more stuff gets done. So on Wednesday, my mummabear and I spent about half an hour looking around at flowers, for my Auntie who had lost her husband. I spent most of the trip, walking around, listening to Mummabear talking about flowers, don’t want to buy flowers, flowers die, she will mostly likely have loads of flowers. I thought Auntie needed something different, something that could really cheer her up, and what’s tons better than flowers, you guessed it CAKE!!! Cake makes everything better ! The next problem, was how could I make cakes, and something special to ease her loss and make her smile again. Then I remembered something I saw on Pinterest.
A CUPCAKE BOUQUET!!!
How beautiful is this for a gift!
So Mummabear, and I started rushing around the shops to find the bits and bobs to make this. Let’s just say trying to find a Styrofoam ball, isn’t easy especially in one small local shopping centre. But we did and then next problem was a pot to balance the ball on, but that was the easiest part. The next part is the fun bit, actually doing the flower part of this wonderful bouquet.
HOW I MADE IT?
The flowers a made of mini VANILLA CUPCAKES, topped with yummy sweet buttercream. Once we actually got back for the shops, I had about an hour to do the whole thing, before mummabear was going to need it. So off to work I went,and let’s just say I needed the whole hour. The cupcakes, are made with my basic vanilla cupcake recipe, along with my favourite vanilla buttercream, which is piped with no 7 pastry tube. To get the dual colour, I simply placed plain white buttercream on one side, then pink on other. Really simple and makes these look outstanding!!! The piping of the cupcakes, was the quickest part of the whole thing surprisingly. The hardest part was definitely trying to assemble and attach all the flower cupcakes. I used about 3 toothpicks per mini cupcake flower to hold them on the ball.
