Turquoise and Teacups!

It was my Nanny's 80th birthday which meant an occasion to bake!  Decided to go with her favourite colour turquoise (like mine) and make some teacups as she loves china.  For a first attempt, I think I did alright.

I made the teacups with 50/50 fondant and gumpaste.  While it is a lot easier to use, it doesn't taste as good as pure fondant.  As I was looking after a sick baby this week, I didn't have much time to go all out with the teacups.  So I just made a few for my Nanny!

Cupcakes were a hit, and as I was leaving my Nanny came up to me and said, "I kept a teacup, I'm going to put it in my china cabinet till it disintegrates."  Too cute.  Happy 80th Nanny!
