What would Audrey do?

Like millions of women in the world, I think I am a ‘fair lady’ and would like to have anything, let alone breakfast, at Tiffany’s given the opportunity. Although it is the dream of most, only one woman has done it all - Audrey Hepburn.
In my eyes, Audrey Hepburn is the epitome of a woman – she is the perfect mix of femininity, sophistication and class. 
A number of people have commented that I dress like Audrey Hepburn. Don’t get me wrong, I am not delusional enough to think that I am the next Audrey Hepburn, but I do appreciate the ego boost. Brendyn, who loves poking fun at me whilst deflating my fat head, brought me a book titled ‘What would Audrey do?’ for Christmas last year as a joke. Well, the joke was on him as it was actually a really good read.
I decided to dedicate a blog post to Audrey Hepburn, but in order to do so I had to somehow incorporate her into my cupcake adventures. So having thought ‘What would Audrey do?,  I decided to put the famous pop art of Audrey Hepburn from Breakfast Tiffany’s on to a cupcake topper.  I used an edible ink pen and drew Audrey Hepburn on to a circle fondant topper and voila:

The next step was making the cupcake itself. I whipped up a simple batch of lemon cupcakes and lemon frosting and placed Audrey Hepburn at the top of her cupcake throne. There you have it, Audrey Hepburn cupcakes.

What would Audrey do? Probably not put her face on a cupcake and eat it, but I sure would!


  1. Can I borrow the book? Would love to have a read of it.

  2. Like I said, it was quite a good read. Of course you can borrow it!

  3. Is there anyway to buy these cupcake toppers? They're so great!

  4. Hi anonymous,

    Thank you! Unfortunately, the Audrey Hepburn topper are not for sale just yet. I am in the process of registering a business. If you would like to send me your contact details, I can contact you when the business is up and running.
