‘Button’ Wedding Cupcakes at Jesus College

cupcake towerwebThis cupcake stand was made for a wedding in April at Jesus College, Cambridge. The groom wore a tartan kilt and the bride was in a vintage-style dotted dress and carried a bouquet of buttons. These were used as inspiration for the cakes.

1DSC_4467webI used a tartan ribbon which very closely matched the colours in the kilt and the bride was also keen to have dots on the cake to match her dress. The topper was specially made and included their beloved cats!

1DSC_4448webThe bouquet was very unusual, in that it was made from buttons, and this was to be the theme for the cupcakes as well. The buttons were made in shades of teal blue, sage green, yellow, white and cream to pick up the colours in the tartan and bouquet.

The bride and groom were very pleased with it and said “Just a quick email to say thank you so much for our wedding cupcakes – they looked and tasted amazing. Look how perfectly they matched the bouquets!”1DSC_4454web

I have a large backlog of weddings to feature on the blog and will do my best to catch up! Luckily there are plenty on here already if you are looking for ideas, but I know it’s always nice to see the most recent ones. I have a wedding coming up in July featuring my mini layer cakes, so I am looking forward to showing you that one. I also have a photo of a wedding stand being featured in The Cambridgeshire Journal bridal feature, coming out at the end of May, I believe, so do look for out for it!
