Simple Swirls Wedding Cupcake Tower

A variety of different flavoured mini cupcakes made up this simple style cupcake tower for a wedding in the colours of apricot and mocha. The cupcake flavours included vanilla (with apricot tinted icing), chocolate, cookies & cream and sticky date, all decorated with a simple swirl of icing. The cutting cake was a chocolate cake iced with a thick layer of chocolate icing (one can never have too much chocolate icing!), covered with ivory fondant and finished with an apricot ribbon (the cake was left blank for the addition of a bride and groom topper sourced by the customer).

Spots, Blossoms & Bows Cupcakes

A selection of 30 regular-sized cupcakes ordered for a black & white themed 21st. The decorations are a variation on an earlier design for a black & white wedding.

The cupcakes were all vanilla flavoured, and were decorated with either ivory embossed fondant* and a blossom, ivory smooth fondant* with a polka dot border, or a buttercream swirl with handmade bows* (which varied slightly from the original wedding design which utilised flat fondant).

The order also included mini-size chocolate cupcakes with white handpiped 21s (not pictured).

*each of the following design aspects incur an additional $0.50 per aspect per cupcake: embossed fondant covering, smooth fondant covering, handmade bows.

Flowery Frilly Cupcakes - Purple

Regular-size vanilla cupcakes decorated with ivory frilly frosting and handmade flowers in varying shades of purple for a baby shower with a colour scheme of green and purple.

Car Motif Birthday Cake & Cupcakes

These mini-size cupcakes and ripple-iced cutting cake were ordered for little boy's 2nd birthday. The cupcakes were vanilla decorated with aqua frosting and orange handpiped letters to spell out a birthday message, and the cutting cake was raspberry & white chocolate with orange and aqua car motifs and a 2 on top.

A pink-themed cupcake tower ordered for a 1st birthday celebration featuring rainbow mini cupcakes with polka dots, butterflies and 1's, and a strawberry mud fondant-covered cake with pink polka dots, "kiani" embossed into white polka dots across the front and wired butterflies to finish the look.

Abstract Design Cutting Cake

This vanilla cutting cake was ordered for a birthday celebration.  The customer wanted an abstract artistic cake design, inspired by the print on her party invitations (shown under cake photo) but with no flower shapes.  The result was a smooth-iced finish with a series of cutout teardrops, spots, ferns and splash shapes in the colours of hot pink, bright orange and chocolate brown, and a piped shell top and bottom border.  The top of the cake was left blank for the addition of a topper by the customer.

Pink & Blue Polka Dot Christening Cupcake Tower

Regular-size vanilla and choc-vanilla cupcakes decorated in pink and blue with polka dots, stars and initials for a twin christening (a boy and a girl).  The cutting cake was a ripple-iced caramel mudcake torted and covered in caramel ganache and finished with a vanilla buttercream ripple effect, decorated with polka dots and stars imprinted with the babies names.
