Cupcake Wedding

I had the pleasure of making Tiffany and Conrad's wedding cake along with a lot of cupcakes for their April wedding. The wedding was held at Top of the Bay in Aberdeen Md, which has an amazing view of the bay. You can see in some of the pictures the view from the reception area.

Tiffany wanted her cake to match her invites so we created a border along the bottom tier to match. When I saw the invite I wasn't sure I was going to be able to pull off all of the small delicate piping, but I think it turned out better then I thought it would. I used a piping tip 00 to pipe all of the small lines and scroll work.

Her is a close-up of the bottom tier.

Along with the cake, Tiffany ordered 325 cupcakes in three different flavors: red velvet with cream cheese icing, vanilla cake with lemon buttercream, and chocolate cake with raspberry buttercream. For each flavor we made a different decoration to go on top. The vanilla cupcakes got a peacock colored chocolate heart, the chocolate cupcakes got a peacock colored ribbon rose, and the red velvets got chocolate shavings. 
I think the cupcake display looked great with all of the different cupcakes lined up.
Congratulations Tiffany and Conrad!
