I made 96 cupcakes for a Bridal Shower and each one was different.
They are plain chocolate/vanilla cake, iced with a 1M tip with half & half buttercream icing. Because these cupcakes will more than likely end up outside for a garden party, I opted to use the half butter/half shortening buttercream, specifically for the melt factor, (you can get that recipe here.)
The flowers were made from fondant that I colored with Wilton gel food coloring.
I used a silicone flower mould with the colored fondant to make these pressed flowers. Simply press into the mould and refrigerate for about 10 minutes. The flowers pop out perfectly. I make all fondant flowers and decorations a few days ahead to let them dry.
One more little necessity for flowers. Pearl Dust. Nothing finishes flowers as beautifully as Pearl Dust.
A little glitter goes a long way.
I took pictures of just a few, but my daughter and I noticed, no two were alike.
Congrats Sabrina & Matthew !
