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!
