These were made for a wedding yesterday at Hotel Felix in Cambridge. The couple chose Carrot Cupcakes, Lemon Cupcakes and a Carrot Cake as the top cake. All were decorated to tie in with the red colour theme.
Their florist provided the small posy of red roses for the top of the cake.
The larger carrot cupcakes were in red foil cases with red roses and the mini carrot cakes were in red paper cases with red chocolate heart dragees. The cakes were topped with piped orange frosting, which complements the carrot cake very well. The top cake was also covered in the same frosting.
Half of the cakes were sprinkled with glitter.
The Lemon cupcakes were in plain white paper cases with the same red roses as the carrot cupcakes and the mini lemon cupcakes were decorated with mini cut-out hearts in various sizes. The larger lemon cupcakes had home-made lemon curd centres and were topped with piped lemon frosting.
Luckily the weather held yesterday and was also a bit cooler, which is always better from a cake-maker’s point of view!
