Princess Cupcakes for a Princess

I was asked to make cupcakes for a Princess Party! They were lemon cupcakes filled with fruit and vanilla buttercream tinted blue. The princess dress, shoe and crown are fondant dusted with silver luster dust.

The Wedding Cake

Well i finally have the time to upload pictures.

Top Tier - Red Velvet filled with fresh strawberries and strawberry buttercream, covered in teal fondant. Quilting pattern with silver balls.
Middle Tier - Lemon cake, filled with fruit and lemon buttercream covered in white fondant. Teal gerber daisies airbrushed with silver.
Bottom Tier - Vanilla cake with chocolate ganache and chocolate buttercream. Covered in teal fondant with white gerber daisies as an accent and dusted in Silver Dust.

The cake topper was a gift to the bride and groom. I bought these from a company in the States that do custom cake toppers. They turned out beautifully and the bride and groom were happy with it as well.

Any issues with the cake?
-Many especially the fondant. We needed it so much that it was constantly cracking. I have to figure out how to not over knead it especially with the amount of color i was adding.

Bridal shower cake and cupcakes

The week before the big Wedding, i got asked to do the cake for the Bridal shower party! The cake and cupcakes were chocolate cake w/ vanilla buttercream, covered in fondant. I tried matching the teal as much as possible, and i found it very difficult. It was to be a girlie theme so i decided to make little fondant figurines for the cupcakes in the shape of a dress, shoes and crown!
