Wedding cupcake tasting with Paula and Tom

Posted by kel @ sweet treats at 9:14 PM
Paula and Tom are getting married soon and I was honoured to be asked to do their wedding cupcakes for them. The lovely couple came over to my place to taste some flavours and decide on what looks they wanted for their cakes.

Paula said she wanted a light flavour rather than a dense cake so the three flavours I offered them today were lemon & coconut, orange & poppyseed and vanilla. I topped some with passionfruit, lemon, vanilla and raspberry buttercream and the rest with fondant. Decorations included pearls, blossoms and roses.

I put together some potential designs and was pleasantly surprised when we had worked out a flavour and design combo within 15 minutes. Here's a couple who work together well!

Thanks for coming over guys, it was great to meet you!

Hey Renee :)

They ended up choosing lemon & coconut with lemon buttercream. I'll be doing the 'rose swirl' and putting a sugar rose on top. Half the roses will be pink, the other half will be ivory. I get a chance to try out my new stand, so I'm psyched! :)

Hey Kel, they look lovely! And from your description of which they chose, it's the 5th pic from the start of the post? I hope so, because they are my favourite!

Yep you're right Annie! I love it too :)

Making close to 100 of those roses is going to be interesting lol! Though I do find it cathartic...I can just do it in front of the TV hehe!
