Purple and Gold Wedding Cupcakes
Cupcakes and individually iced Mini cakes are very popular for weddings. I have a variety of different stands that you are welcome to use to display your cakes. Sometimes couples opt to have all their cupcakes decorate in the same way. Personally I feel that having a variety of designs, sizes, and types of cake all add to the display and make a much more striking focal point for the reception.
The cakes I created for them were in a variety of sponge flavours and decorated with a mixture of butterflies, blossoms, roses and hearts in shades of white, lilac, and purple along with touches of gold. Some of the cakes had a butter cream frosting and some where iced with lace embossed white icing and hand piped details. To further add to the display the cakes were presented in a number of different cake wrappers including lace and lilac butterfly papers, gold papers and lilac tulip papers along with some cakes in simple white papers. Some of the white cakes where tied with an organza ribbon bow, again echoing the colour scheme.
In addition to the large cupcakes I also created a number of bite sized mini cupcakes along with individually iced mini fruit cakes. There was also a top cake to the display decorated with a shower display of gold Bear Grass, hand piped scrolls and tiny purple butterflies. The inclusion of the top cake meant that the couple had a cake to actually cut together on their wedding day.
