an edible christmas, part 3

Right, this is the last one I promise!

The bakery got asked to design cupcakes to appear on TV!!! How exciting is THAT! The cupcakes they chose were the sheep, the santa hats & the christmas trees… all three of which were cupcakes I had designed. They also asked for three new designs & my boss told me to “go wild”.

I’m not sure this counts as wild… but here are the other three designs!
