We decided to go with 150 cupcakes and a traditional cake topper for the bride and groom to cut into. The flavors chosen were Chocolate Candy Cane, a chocolate cupcake topped with a peppermint candy cane buttercream, Chocolate Truffle, a chocolate cupcake filled with a rich chocolate truffle and topped with a white chocolate buttercream, Lemon Snow Ball, a fresh lemon zest cupcake topped with a coconut buttercream and Vanilla Cookies & Cream, a vanilla cupcake filled with cookies & cream topped with a vanilla buttercream. Vanilla Cookies & Cream was also the cake topper.
Individual fondant flowers were placed on each cupcake. For future reference, purple is a very hard color to achieve. For my first batch I used the Wilton gel color violet. I thought I achieved the perfect purple, until they dried and turned royal blue. I tried again with my AmeriColor. These turned out a bit better - not as bright as I wanted them but at least they stayed purple.
|Hard to tell but the ribbon and wrappers were a deep purple.|
