A Sweet Read: Literary Classic Cupcakes!


Just when I announce I'm doing away with the Cupcake Monday title, I see yet another example of someone doing something incredible with cupcakes. You may have seen these book toppers already, these ingenious literary creations in fondant from Victoria's Kitchen have gone viral, because once you see them you can't not share them!

Victoria Gadsen is the talent behind the London-based business specialising in bespoke cakes, cupcakes and cookies. She's been taught by some of the greatest cake decorators in the UK and New York and is dedicated to keeping her cakes genuinely homemade: everything is made from scratch in small batches using traditional recipes, and never with pre-mixes, industrial ovens or freezing. All of the decorations are completely edible and handcrafted by Victoria herself. I think it's safe to assume Victoria is a very busy woman!

The collection of cupcakes above were made for a lady celebrating her 60th birthday and include all of the books that have shaped her life - including Christiano Ronaldo's autobiography and Chicken Licken!

You can keep up with Victoria's Kitchen on her Facebook page and join the adoring masses - and she's super nice, too!
