Cupcake Towers

 The past weekend was all about cupcake towers - a wedding and a 21st birthday party. Lisa contacted me about 6 months ago about creating a cupcake tower for her wedding to Jerry. This would be the first time I have done a wedding cupcake tower with cutting cake, so I was very excited. The colour theme was ivory, black and silver. 

The cupcakes were vanilla sponge with vanilla buttercream swirls and tiny silver cachous. The cutting cake was white chocolate mudcake filled and covered with vanilla buttercream. The topper was provided by the bride.

 On the tables the guests received vanilla sugar cookie favours in organza bags. The large heart shaped cookie was embossed with the happy couple's initials and the small heart shaped cookie was embossed with a floral pattern.

The wedding was held at the gorgeous Carrington Hotel in Katoomba.Unfortunately the weather was cold and rainy, but the bride looked stunning, and from all reports it was a wonderful celebration.

The following day Jessie-Rose was celebrating her 21st birthday party and requested a cupcake tower too. The colour scheme was almost the same as the wedding - black, silver and white. Jessie-Rose also requested an open gift box cutting cake.

The cupcakes were vanilla sponge cake with buttercream swirls, tiny silver cachous and fondant "21"'s. The cutting cake was cherry ripe mudcake filled with dark chocolate ganache and fondant covering. The present bow and tissue paper were made from modelling paste.

I spoke to Jessie-Rose's mum yesterday, as she is my son's teacher, and she said that Jessie-Rose wouldn't let anyone cut the present box! Hopefully they have by now, as it would be a shame to miss out on such a delicious flavoured cake!

This weekend brings another two 21st birthday cakes, so be sure to come back to see what I create for Madelyn and Carina.

Enjoy your week.
