Black & Gold Wedding Cupcake Samples

Here we have some gorgeous cupcakes that I made as samples for a bride to be that came to see me about her wedding in February.

Her theme will be black & gold & she requested to have a fondant finish with some hearts to be incorporated with maybe some bows. I also included one with a calla lily as the wedding will also be featuring these.

I created a variety of designs just to show some of the possibilities, including different finishes for the fondant such as embossing, pearl lustre & plain & explained that she could of course mix & match any of the finishes & design elements that she liked.

The cake flavours  she requested were 'Midnight Delight' (dark chocolate mud) & 'Snow White' (white chocolate mud) with corresponding chocolate ganaches & I used marshmallow fondant for the finish & decorations as well as some gold cachous.  It was undecided whether to go with black, gold or plain cupcake cases.

The bride to be was over the moon with the samples & commented that they both tasted & looked wonderful & was just what she had in mind.  Therefore she has booked for the wedding & will be having 100 cupcakes on a cupcake tower along with a cutting cake for the top which I look forward to making for her special day.


  1. Ooh, those are gorgeous, very sophisticated and grown-up. I'm definitely bookmarking your blog for inspiration.
