This may sound strange, but I rarely get to do weddings that are in my tiny hometown. So I was pretty excited when I got the order for this Black & Hot Pink Cake & Wedding Cake & Cupcake Tower and I got to deliver it just a few miles from home!
This wedding cake design was sort of a cross between my first Black & Hot Pink Wedding Cake (except that one was huge and had alot more piping!) and this Black & White Wedding Cake & Cupcake Tower. Or at least… that’s what came to mind for me!
I really love doing cupcakes for weddings. If you’re on a budget, cupcakes in place of a huge cake often saves quite a bit of money. Plus, nobody has to stand by and serve cake (which, if not done right, can be messy and a pain!). But with cupcakes, guests can just grab a cupcake and move on!
For the cake on top, it was a 6″ round chocolate cake. It was covered in marshmallow fondant with a hot pink marshmallow fondant ribbon (see how to make fondant ribbon borders here) and the black scrolling was royal icing.
I loaned out my stacking white stands for the wedding reception and we added the black ribbons to coordinate. Here’s a picture of it all set up in the church fellowship hall:
I loved the way it all turned out and thought it was just really pretty!
What do you think? Do you have any questions about the cake or cupcakes? Let me know in the comments… I absolutely love comments!!
