This is a cupcake cake I made for my sister's bridal shower. Of course she is having a little girl! She already has the cutest little boy.
It is a very simple creation. I made all cake and icing from scratch. The only way to go when you are making something special.
You can embellish any way you'd like. I chose pink, of course.
Use any basic recipe for both cup cakes and icing. Even go boxed if you want it faster and easier.
I added semi-sweet melted chocolate bars to some of the batter to make a few for the chocolate lovers. As you can see (photo) I placed the chocolate ones in the middle. I used polka dot cupcake liners (sorry I didn't include photo on them). It is so easy to do this, right? Then I swirled a pattern on each cupcake, with dots in between to fill in the spaces you could see. The embellishments are pearl candies and sprinkles (see photo). I rolled the bottom cakes in sprinkles to get a ruffle look. I piped the entire dress and put the pearls around also. That really dressed it up!
*HINT: to keep your cake table sturdy, I doubled up on card board boxes (cut pieces to fit cake box) and covered with foil. This is a sure fix that your creation won't move and disfigure.
