The cupcakes were really simple to put together and after I finished them, I decided to try and mix things up and have some fun with the photos instead of using the all-white background that I usually fall back on.
I used a big panel of pink fabric (maybe fabric is the wrong word!?) with sequins that belong to my daughter (I think it used to be one of those things that hang over the bed, but now she just dances around with it most of the time) and my stacking clear cake plates and some strings of pearls... and that's it.
The pink and pearls just really softened the look of the photo and emphasized the girlyness of the cupcakes. Dontcha think?
I baked the cupcakes in white liners and then doubled them when they were transparent after baking. In my non-expert opinion... doubling the liners is another way to fancy up a cupcake that takes very little effort!
Oh. and I piped on the frosting with an Ateco tip #825 that came in the Ateco Large Tube set. If you do cupcakes on a regular basis - I highly recommend getting this set! I use these piping tips all.the.time!!
And that's it! These were done for the queen of the Pilgrimage Pageant in Natchez and the girls were wearing dresses the same color as the frosting... along with wearing tiaras and having scepters! I was perfectly pleased with these cupcakes!
What do you think? Do you have any questions? I'd love for you to leave a comment or question!
