Ever made cupcakes with a Latin inscription before? Nope? Well it was definitely a first for me. These were made for a fantastic talk on philosophy, focused on Descartes. He’s the one that came up with the phrase “Cogito ergo sum” or in English “I think therefore I am”.
I must admit that I had to wiki Descartes before I could come up with suitable cake ideas. I wanted to keep the design very clean and simple, really letting the concept of his philosophical thinkings shine through. Hence the white cupcake cases, the pure white fondant disks and the simple embossed inscription.
The cake in this instance was a classic dark chocolate cake topped with a fluffy chocolate swiss meringue buttercream. Just a classic cake and icing combination, but with the bitter dark chocolate flavour making it suitable for a party of grown-ups.
These cupcakes can be customised with whatever message you desire to send along with your sweet treats.
