Lonely Planet’s Ultimate Eatlist Cupcakes

We absolutely love these cute foodie cupcakes created last week for Lonely Planet’s brand new Ultimate Eatlist book launch.  This new release ranks 500 of the world’s top eating experiences and we can’t wait to read it for some tips! 

These cupcakes feature some of the top contenders, including teeny tiny South Korean bibimbap which are in at entry number 8, along with sushi, hotdogs, spaghetti bolognese and smoked salmon bagels.

These miniature food creations looked almost too cute to eat (we said almost!) and we hope that they were enjoyed by all those celebrating Ultimate Eatlist’s launch.

Kiehl’s Rainbow Cakes

 

When the iconic skincare brand Kiehl’s got in touch to ask us to create some super fun branded rainbow cakes we couldn’t wait to help!  These cakes were created to celebrate the launch of Kiehl’s collaboration with MTV Staying Alive Foundation, which is dedicated to stopping the spread of HIV among young people.  Their awesome rainbow branding features on the top of limited edition pots of Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream, and has inspired the rainbow theme of these cakes.  Complete with carefully crafted font matched piped plaques on the front and finished off with rainbow sprinkles, these cakes were just the thing to kick start Pride week at our Wandsworth HQ!
