I have spent a hectic weekend working on an engagement party, this wedding and a christening. For some reason this was a very popular weekend! The wedding party was held at The White Hart in Godmanchester and was themed around chocolate-brown and ivory.
The cupcakes were all chocolate and vanilla in plain brown and brown and white dotty cases. Some of the brown cases were inserted into Ivory Lace cupcake wrappers (from Squires). These are quite expensive, but really nice quality. You don’t need to use them on all the cupcakes, but really add another dimension to the stand.
The top cake was a chocolate cake with dark chocolate ganache. It was edged with milk chocolate cigarillos and filled with white chocolate roses (both from Squires). Again, these are pretty expensive to buy in, but are worth it for a special occasion. After much deliberation and many purchases of ribbon, I finally decided that the brown and cream dotted ribbon would look best, picking up the dotty cases. Many of the ivory ribbons available are more mushroom in colour and just didn’t look good with the cream rose and frosting. You wouldn’t believe how difficult it was to find a proper cream ribbon! I think the dotted ribbon worked very well in the end, tying the whole look together.
