Tiffany Cupcakes

These were a birthday surprise for a colleague. Her name is Tiffany so how could I resist making the cupcake embodiment of her name?

I used the Magnolia Bakery recipes for vanilla cupcakes and vanilla buttercream. It's my go to favorite and mostly because I know both recipes by heart. Easy Peasy.

Getting the color just right was tricky. I actually fished a Tiffany box deep out of a closet and kept comparing it to the buttercream while adding different amounts of light blue and green.

Leftover white homemade marshmallow fondant was used to form the ribbons and  I scattered some sugar pearls for a little extra pretty.


  1. Ooh how pretty, and perfect for, dare I say, breakfast? ;-)
