Cream and Gold Wedding Cupcakes

These were made this weekend for a small wedding reception at The George in Buckden. These are chocolate cupcakes with chocolate frosting in brown cases decorated with white chocolate roses brushed with gold lustre – very pretty!

Then there were Fresh Ginger and Molasses Cupcakes with Lemon Fondant Icing, topped with a cream daisy with a brown centre.

The gold foil cases tie in nicely with the gold theme, whereas the decorations were kept very plain and simple.

Then there were some very sweet mini cupcakes: Lemon and Poppyseed Cupcakes with Lemon Frosting, topped with gold glitter and cream blossoms with a gold ball centre:

A little gold was introduced on each cupcake, which tied them all together, but the overall effect was very subtle. I didn’t set these cakes up at the reception, so I don’t know what they looked like on the stand, but hopefully the bride and groom were pleased with them!

  1. I stumbled upon your blog a little while ago and I first just wanted to say that your cupcakes are gorgeous!
    I was just wondering what you use to make the flowers, particularly the flatter ones with rounded petals (like in your icon picture). Gum paste and a cutter? I wanted to attempt something like that for a friend’s wedding.

    1. You can use what we call here ‘petal paste’ or ‘sugarpaste’ ( I think that’s the same as gum paste) and any king of cutter you like. The flower you like is called a blossom cutter – it’s availabe in all sorts of sizes here. Hope that’s helpful!
