Cupcakes so pretty they almost look fake

Cupcakes from Candy Cakes in the UK

These seriously look like they're made of...I don't know what, but something not edible, don't you think?

And yet they are!

They're all from Candy Cakes in the UK, which does custom cupcakes and ships them within London. You can add them on Facebook and who are also on Flickr.

Their publicist had sent us the above photos, but then I found these ones below on Flickr, and I just couldn't resist. The season has passed but these are so adorable, and again, look like children's toys or something, rather than cupcakes (I mean that in the best possible way).

I went in there when I was on vacation and I wasn't impressed at all :( All of the cuppers I saw looked sloppy and none had just regular icing. All looked like they were covered in a type of fondant, and that rarely tastes good. So yes, I didn't even buy one! Crazy. Maybe I'm just pampered by the US shops I tend to be in.

They look like they're made of polymer clay!

Problem with this place is that they're bought in muffins just covered in fondant icing. And with colours that bright there's no way they'll EVER convince me that those food colourings are natural!!!!!
