Vintage Steampunk Cupcakes

Made some vintage steampunk cupcakes to take to Ipswich today for a couple of friends: these are chocolate sponge cupcakes with chocolate fudge frosting, finished with (literal) chocolate buttons.

Ooh, shiny.

Originally I just wanted to spray the buttons, but then I decided it would be kind of cool to use the pearl and gold sprays on the cupcakes themselves, too. One thing led to another and, well... steampunk cupcakes!

I also used some art deco-style black and white cupcake cases that I found lurking in my Cake Stuff Cupboard, resulting in altogether rather dramatic cupcakes.
