Amazing Wedding Shower Cupcakes

Posted by Ethne~

*Sorry about the delaying in posting this week - I was having problems loading pictures!*

Friends, I have total amazingness to share with you today!  My pal E is a complete MASTER when it comes to baking.  When she makes her daughter’s birthday cakes, I swear my eyes are deceiving me and I’m really watching ‘Ace of Cakes’ on TLC.

So naturally when E threw a bridal shower recently, she put her genius into action again.  She purchased cool black and white cupcake papers at JoAnn – prices are reasonable there, and you can use your 40% off coupons!!  She purchased the other bridal items at Party City and I think you’ll agree with me, those diamond rings are awesomesauce (my new fave term a la Lor's and my fave blog younghouselove).

It's a shame to eat this!

The nice thing about making cupcakes is, well, they’re easy.  You don’t have to be a genius to make them, if you want to try to follow in E’s footsteps.  If you don’t have a gourmet recipe, or you are a beginner at baking and frosting, you can use store-bought cake mix and frosting.  In this case, E used Wilton’s White Chocolate Buttercream recipe here and she said it was DELICIOUS.

These cupcakes were white cake; she also did chocolate

Of course E piped the frosting on and made it look really fancy – I’d expect nothing less – and she used heart-shaped cookie cutters to make those hearts out of black fondant.  You can be extremely creative in decorating – and now that you’ve seen E’s example, you can follow along.  She was very enthused to be featured as a guest on the blog, and I know she’d love to hear back if any of you tried some of her techniques!

Happy Friday, Friends!

Walmart has Wilton cake products, too, and they clearance out items at the end of a holiday. I have purchased many items there for cakes and cupcakes at reasonable prices!
