Black & Red Wedding Cupcakes

I am slowly getting back into the swing of things. I cannot wait to get back to baking! These cupcakes were for a friend’s wedding. I completed the order several days after Baby J was born, although I had the cupcakes frozen, the sugar flowers created ahead of time, and the help of family – thankfully!

This was my first attempt at freezing cupcakes and I was pretty pleased with the results. To freeze the cupcakes, I placed them in the freezer until they were frozen and then stored them in large ziploc bags.

The cupcakes were red velvet, chocolate, and vanilla with vanilla buttercream. I made the flowers with royal icing.

I wasn’t thrilled with the cupcake liners available at the local craft stores so I decided to make my own black and red liners with cardstock and this DIY tutorial.

Along with the cupcakes, I made a small 6 inch cake for the bride and groom. Vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream, covered in fondant and decorated with buttercream and royal icing flowers.

Congratulations to the married couple!

    These are beautiful!

    Two questions: where did you get the cupcake stand, and how many cupcakes did it hold? I haven’t seen one this tall before!

    Thanks!

      Thank you! The bride bought the stand on ebay from a company named Dallas Foam. I believe the stand held about 250 cupcakes. If you have anymore questions, please let me know.
