A couple of weeks ago I met up with a Bride to discuss her wedding cake requirements with her. She had a picture of the cake she wanted, but was unsure of what flavours to have in the three tiers.
So what better way to help her decide than to take with a selection of cupcakes in assorted flavours, including carrot cake with cream cheese frosting, chocolate with mocha frosting, vanilla caramel with vanilla frosting, red velvet with cream cheese frosting and chocolate with chocolate frosting.
Her colours are blue and silver, and she loves butterflies, so I tried to incorporate all of those elements into the design of the decor for the cupcakes. Clusters of mini roses, pearlised butterflies and dainty daisies. I really think that they came out beautifully and look so dainty!
Cupcakes are definately the trend for ‘wedding cakes’ at the moment – a tower of cuppies with a small 10cm diameter cake at the top is definately the way to go. Very little wastage and a good way to incorporate more than one flavour. And who doesn’t love a beautifully decorated cupcake?
