Today I wanted to share my excitement at my first (yes, that's my very first) corporate client and I couldn't have asked for a more fun and creative commission than helping Universal Pictures in London celebrate the launch of 50 Shades Of Grey at home entertainment.
150 vanilla and chocolate cupcakes with handmade toppers featuring the infamous tie, ornate key, saucy horse whip, red padded effect and "FIFTY SHADES". The colour palette was black, silver and red as those of you who know a thing of two about the film might expect! Now I've read the books but haven't had chance to see the film yet so spent rather a lot of time researching horse whips for job :) The topper embellishments were made of gumpaste and the toppers were embossed fondant on top of buttercream topped cupcakes.
Universal always go to town to celebrate their releases and get all the staff excited about them too. Even being in their building, I was pretty excited and it was before everyone arrived this morning. Lots more fun and games for them planned throughout the day. Fingers crossed for a fabulous release :)
