                           Small World of Cupcakes Part I

Welcome back from the vacations!! This year I took vacations...wow....amazing feeling!! time to rest, time to share, time to think and time to create and no matter where, my mind is always working. As this year I went to Spain for vacations it made me thing how different we are in each part of the globe although at the end we are all the same and we all want the same things. With this idea I wanted to create my own small world of cupcakes inspired in the Disney creation. Two cupcakes with one personality, two cupcakes with the country identity but at the end all of them are two cupcakes...what a philosophical idea lol!!

Ya de vuelta de vacaciones, bienvenidos a todos!! Este año he cogido vacaciones...un logro y una increíble sensación!!! Es increíble tener tiempo, algo tan valioso, tiempo para descansar, para compartir, para pensar y sobre todo para crear, porque no importa donde mi cabeza está siempre funcionando. Este año he estado en España y siempre pienso lo diferentes que somos en cada parte del mundo aunque en el fondo todos terminamos queriendo las mismas cosas. Y con esta idea se me ocurrió crear mi propio "small world" o pequeño mundo inspirado en la creación de Disney. Dos cupcakes con una personalidad, dos cupcakes con una identidad de su propio país pero al final todos ellos son dos cupcakes...qué filosófica madre mía!!

With this idea I created a serie of different parts of Small World of cupcakes where I will be showing you the different countries of the world made in cupcakes.

Con esta idea he creado una serie de distintas partes de pequeños mundos de cupcakes donde iré mostrando los distintos países plasmados en cupcakes.

From left to right of the picture we have Uk. There are many possibilities of represent UK but I just chose the first thing that came to my mind.

De izquierda a derecha de la foto tenemos Reino Unido. Hay muchas posibilidades para representar los distintos países yo simplemente me dejé llevar por la primera idea que me vino a la cabeza.

France oh la la...sophisticated and fashionable inspired in Coco.
Francia Oh la la...sofisticada y fashion inspirada in Coco.

Spain, what I can say!! I enjoyed making this one because I feel it....ole, ole and Ole
España que voy a decir, disfruté mucho haciédola porque me llega...ole, ole y ole.

I know that Africa is not a country but in my mind this cupcake represents Africa. I really love this one!!!

Ya sé que Africa no es un país pero creo que para mi este cupcake representa bien Africa. Este es uno de mis favoritos!!

China in the most traditional style!! She is cute!!
China en la forma más tradicional...es super graciosa!!!

And the last one of this Part I USA. This one is a mix of ideas in one and it´s so nice too.
Y la última de esta primera parte, Estados Unidos. Este es una mezcla de ideas en uno y muy mono también.
To make these cupcakes you will need some cupcakes and fondant in different colors. For the cupcakes I used this recipe:

Orange Cupcakes:

1 cup unsalted butter
3 extra large eggs
1 cup superfine sugar
1 orange finely grated
1/4 poppy seeds
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
2/3 cup milk whole
2/3 cup orange juice

Preheat the oven to 325 F.
Beat the butter and sugar all together until pale and fluffy. Then add eggs gradually. Stir in the orange rind and poppy seeds. Sift in the flour and baking powder and then mix all ingredients together.
Add the milk and orange juice and mix again.
Divide batter among baking cups, filling each cup 3/4 full. Bake in preheated oven 21 - 24 minutes, rotating cupcake tin once halfway through baking, until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean. Remove from oven and allow to cool several minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool
One you have the cupcakes completely cold they are ready to be transformed in this wonderful small world.
