Wedding Cupcakes and More

A few weeks ago, I told you in my Upcoming Projects post that I would be making a dear friend's wedding cupcakes, so I wanted to share those with you.  In talking with her, we decided that she would need 150 cupcakes, a small cake for cutting, and a groom's cake.

The cupcakes and the small cake were all a white almond cake with a raspberry buttercream frosting.  Her wedding colors were purple and yellow so I decided on a small purple fondant flower to decorate the cupcakes.

The small cake for cutting was decorated simply with a symmetrical grouping of dots all over.  The Bride had a monogrammed topper to place on the cake.

The groom's cake was a dark chocolate cake with a peanut butter buttercream frosting - and given the Groom's love of sports, we went with a Boston Red Sox themed cake.

However, the groom's cake suffered a major mishap during delivery by way of flipping upside down in the back of the Mister's car.  Needless to say, it was not presented at the wedding, which was a bummer because I thought it was such a cute cake.

Here are the cupcakes and cutting cake displayed at the wedding.

And, in case you were wondering, this is what 150 cupcakes and two cakes look like getting ready for transport.

It was a lot of work getting it all done, and disappointment in losing the groom's cake, but overall I think it went well.

  1. Awesome job!!! Everything looks so scrumptious. I'm sorry to hear about the groom's cake, that must have been completely frustrating (it was super cute!).

    Thank you very much for the lovely anniversary wishes, dear lady, you're so sweet.
