Cupcake Medallions

I recently made a batch of cupcakes for a friend who's sister-in-law was having her first child, a girl. It was a sweet idea to present them to friends and family as they visited the baby for the very first time.

There were three flavors in all - vanilla, chocolate, and carrot cupcakes - all frosted in a basic swirl pattern to accommodate the design they selected - personalized medallions.

They wanted cupcakes that were sophisticated and elegant and not the usual pink- or blue-pastel hued designs.

I pulled together this very simple and more formal look with small round fondant-gumpaste medallions that were personalized with the first letter of the baby's name, R.

These cupcakes are proof that simplicity is often the most beautiful way to go. Congrats to the family on your very new addition!
