Jade & Butterfly Wedding Cupcake Tower

This wonderfully striking wedding cupcake tower with cutting cake was for a wedding held in the beautiful surroundings of  Eungella & featured an enchanted forest theme.

The wedding had a lovely bright vibrant colour scheme which I loved so I created a fairly understated design overall to complement that.  The feature colour of the design, Jade, was the colour of the brides dress, with the black & silver highlights being taken from the bridesmaids & the venue was to be adorned with large hot pink & orange butterflies in amongst the trees.

The cutting cake was a 5" round cake (approx 8 regular serves), it was 3 layers of 'Snow White' (white chocolate mud) cake filled & coated with a decadent Baileys ganache all covered with my yummy homemade marshmallow fondant.

I made the two butterflies on the cutting cake to symbolise the happy couple.  The couples initials I cut out of fondant, painted them with an edible silver paint & then finished off effect with a trail of silver cashous (sugar pearls).  To complete the look I used a simple black satin ribbon for the boarded to which I added a gorgeous round crystal buckle. 

There were 60 cupcakes in a mixture of 'Diablo Red Devil' (red velvet butter cake), 'Black Forest' (Chocolate & Cherry butter cake) & 'Rainbow Tie Dye' (multi coloured vanilla butter cake).  All were then covered with a very generous layer of either dark chocolate or white chocolate ganache before being covered with marshmallow fondant.

I incorporated 3 simple designs for the cupcakes to complement the cutting cake featuring jade fondant with hot pink fondant butterflies, bright orange fondant butterflies & trails of silver cashous (sugar pearls).

Due to the location of the wedding I did not get to deliver & set up this order but instead delivered it to the bride on the morning of the wedding, it was really lovely to see a bride that morning & be able to wish her good luck & give my best wishes for the wedding.

The following photo just gives a little better idea of what the cupcakes look like when combined.

I was lucky enough to be given a couple of photo of the cutting cake & cupcakes all set up at the event by the bride & groom.  I am really looking forward to seeing some of the professional ones!

They were very happy with their cake "Just beautiful to look at and tasted so yum! Thankyou so much for making exactly what we wanted! Thanks again, we absolutely loved your cake! Perfect!!" Juanita

Congratulations guys & all the best for the future!
