Baby Shower Cupcakes

I recently made cupcakes for a baby shower for one of my oldest friends, Sarina. She's having a girl and her theme was pink and mint.

I made 2 x batches of the Thermomix 30 Second Cupcake recipe (recipe link below) and 2 x batches of  the Buttercream Recipe from the TM5 chip which made 4 dozen cupcakes.
 
I mixed plain white buttercream with green buttercream, and plain white buttercream with pink buttercream as a base to give a coloured swirl.
 
Cupcake decorations were varied using diff types of icing techniques, decorated with a few different things I had at home including:
  • White Chocolate Tim Tams (roughly broken into small pieces)
  • White Chocolate melts
  • White jellybeans
  • Silver cachous
  • Toasted and shredded coconut
  • Strawberry and Vanilla Wafer Biscuits
  • Toasted marshmallows (I cut up marshmallows and torched it with a blow torch prior to putting it on the cupcake)
  • Coloured sugar
  • Edible glitter
  • Edible flowers

This is a YouTube video that I found as an example of how you can get the 2 tone icing swirl:
