Cupcakes for the Other Coco

Last weekend I had a very exciting cupcake order.

One of my fave shops in Aberdeen is the fantabulous Coco Violet.

Coco Violet is a unique boutique in the heart of Aberdeen, Scotland housing an eclectic collection of fashion for the woman that wants to stand out from the crowd. With stunning items you won't come across often, you will be sure to find that little something to make you feel special.

Owner Lou Couper scours the country for special pieces that include incredible 1940s style dresses, stunning shoes by Shoemissy and the cutest and jaw-droppingly amazing accessories this side of the moon (I want to wear this dress and be a sexy sailor EVERY day!)

In other words, I love this little treasure trove in The Green. And seeing as I named one of my cakes after the shop's gorgeous femme fatale, I felt it only right to provide some for customers to nibble on while perusing the shop's goods.

Et voila! My new cake stand was put to good use displaying the cakey goodness!

The display houses a combination of Coco Violets and Gala Darlings.

Meet Coco Violet -

Coco Violet is a light vanilla sponge, hiding a scrummy stawberry jam centre, topped off with a swirl of Parma Violet frosting, and pink sugar crystals. She's fun, flirty and always stylish.

Oh and this is her companion Gala Darling-

Named after Kiwi blogger Gala, this luxurious chocolate cake hides white chocolate chunks inside its crumbles. In honour of Gala's ever changing hair colour, the cake is topped with vibrant pink, vivid lilac and milky white frosting, which incorporates smooth melted white chocolate. Gala is spunky, creative and devilishly good fun.

This was such a fun order, I always love a bit of colour and sparkles!

This week I'm busy working on Halloween ideas - witches legs anyone?

P.S Coco Violet are holding a special Halloween event this weekend to celebrate their second birthday - why not visit the shop for some apple bobbing, bewitching outifts and spookily good Sugar-Coated Cupcakes!
