West Ham Graduation Cupcakes

I'm not much of a football fan, or any sports fan really, (though apparently that currently excludes these Olympics - feels weird but loving it, GO AUS!!), anyway one thing I do know about football fans in particular is they have a lot of pride in their team colours. So when I was asked by my friend Kate to do some West Ham cupcakes for her boyfriends graduation, I was a bit nervous about getting the colours right.

For example.. West Ham colours are NOT burganday, deep red or maroon... its Claret and Sky Blue. I knew straight up that Claret icing was going to be difficult and I didn't want to dare try create it and I was lucky enough to find some Claret cases and made the icing sky blue which was a lot easier to pull off. As I said I'm not a football fan, but I'm proud of these colours.

Well Done Dan on your graduation.

Happy Baking x
