Welcome to the world (which was eagerly waiting for you!) George Alexander Louis!
I have to admit… watching the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge coming out of the hospital holding that little precious baby, really made me emotional. Somehow I relived the joy we had when our little Prince Leonardo was born 3 months ago (minus the paparazzi lol). Awww.. that was one of the most precious moments of our lives….
To celebrate the birth of the future King, I managed to find some time to make these simple Royal Baby cupcakes in honour of little Prince George.
While Leonardo was napping (yes! He’s napping during the day in his cot bed!) I quickly prepared some blue and red fondant to recreate the Union Flag colours and by using some cookie cutters, I cut out different shapes: a little pram, a milk bottle, a rocking horse and babygrow.
The bit that took me longer was the making of the Union flag as I had to cut out little strings of fondant different in lenght and glue them together with some water. That was quite tricky as I had to be careful not to stain the white bits with red or blue colour and trust me doing this in a rush, praying that the baby doesnt wake up, it’s a challenge.
Obviously while I was preparing these cupcakes Leo woke up! Thankfully as I mentioned in my previous post, he’s getting better and better so he was happy enough to bounce in his chair while mommy finished to prepare the Royal cupcakes.
Congratulations Mommy Kate and Daddy William!
