I got am amazing present for my birthday: the season premiere of Game of Thrones. The coinciding events just warranted some celebratory cupcakes. There was lots of cake in the house from birthday celebrations a couple days earlier, so I just went for something quick and easy. I only planned on making 6 cupcakes, so choosing 6 houses was hard. I opted for 6 of the biggest players in the upcoming season: Tyrell, Targaryen, Martell, Stark, Baratheon and Lannister. I made the toppers from fondant, then made the chocolate cupcakes. Game of Thrones is a series well known for its blood and gore, so I decided to represent that my making a raspberry sauce filling inside the cupcakes.
