Extra cupcakes for Bridal Shower
This was a fun cake to do. I think the first one I saw was on the Pinterest Board. My customer emailed me the picture and asked if I could do one similar to it. Of course I said I would try.
The cupcakes are yellow butter cake with vanilla butter cream. The belt is fondant pearls with a purchased pin.
I can hardly believe June is gone. It seemed to go by so quickly. Haven’t had a lot of weddings this June but have had lots of birthday and other celebration cakes. Here are pictures of just a few of them.
Stripes and dots seems to be quite popular. The lime green and dark blue makes this cake stand out. I added a few flowers to the design. The message on top was something special just for the bride. Flavor, lemon cake with lemon buttercream frosting.
Here are just a few of the cupcakes I made for today. Total number was 48. I really don’t mind making cupcakes, especially when I can do whatever I like for decorations. I made sugar flowers for some of them in different colors and since it was a kitchen shower I made tiny fondant rolling pins, wooden spoons, whisks and spatulas to go on top. I think they turned out well and my customer loved them too.
Cupcakes seem to be the thing to serve at showers. I’ve made so many lately. The flavor, yellow butter cake with vanilla frosting. The flowers were air dried buttercream white daises with a spring green leaf. I like the way they turned out. Having white flowers really makes them perfect for a wedding shower.
With the weather a little warmer (at least here) people are thinking about the Spring wedding season and daisies always make me think of Spring. I made 40 lemon cupcakes for the bridal shower and iced them in lemon frosting and topped each one with a yellow butter cream daisy. I sprinkled a little coarse granulated sugar in the center of each daisy to add a little sparkle.
The customer didn’t want a lot of decorations but she did want it to look like a bridal cake. This is what i came up with. I made large & small fondant hearts dusted them with silver, the pink flowers were cut from fondant. I placed 2 small doves in the center and covered the rest with a lace design. Flavor was a classic butter cake with vanilla butter cream.
This was a fun cake to do. Since it was a square (10″) I decided to make it look like a gift box for the bridal shower. I iced the top in blue, and used a large rose tip to create a band around the top edge to make it look like a box lid. The sides i iced in white with blue swirls. The bow and tiny blue flowers are fondant, the white roses are butter cream. Flavors were marble cake with raspberry butter cream filling and vanilla frosting.
Since this is the bridal season, I have had lots of orders for cupcakes. They are easy to serve for bridal showers. The flavor of these, yellow butter cake with vanilla buttercream. The flowers are buttercream in shades of pink.
Note: The divider in the box to hold the cupcakes was made of wood by my son. Works great to keep them from sliding around.
