Well, I survived baking for my first wedding job! I had a great time planning for and creating a cupcake tower and rose cake for the bride and groom. The couple was so sweet and the bride was very easy to work with. Yay!
The couple's wedding colors were coral, mint green and ivory. After looking at some ideas of what she liked, along with pictures of projects that I have done in the past, we made final decisions for their wedding “cake”.
The happy couple wanted a white cake with vanilla almond buttercream frosting. They wanted the cake frosted in ivory with a coral ribbon border on the bottom. To tie in the coral color from the ribbon on the cake, I frosted the cupcakes in coral roses and she selected mint cupcake liners, which brought all of their colors into it nicely.
Here is a close up of the top tier of the cake. They selected the topper and had it ready for me at the reception to place on the cake.
