This was the final cake display that I took with me to the Delting wedding fair. I had designed a set of wedding stationery in a minty/green colour and I wanted the cutting cake and cupcakes to reflect this. The invitations include ribbon and is designed in quite a modern style, so I decided to compliment them with a ruffle cake as this is always very popular…
The cutting cake was a 6 inch round cake 5inches in height covered in icing / fondant ruffles. This sat on top of my new clear monochrome cupcake stand. I have to admit probably the hardest part of this was deciding what cupcake tower to buy. I did so much research, I wanted a stand that was strong and durable, that didn’t need extra supports that would be in the way of the cupcakes and I wanted it to look nice. I think I made the right choice and I have 2 more plates which can be added to the bottom to make it bigger.
The picture above shows a closeup of the ruffle cake and the bunting. The gumpaste bunting is embossed with ‘Just Married’ which is similar to the ‘Almost married’ cake I made for my hen party but I just love the little ribbon detail at the bottom.
To match the cutting cake I made a selection of cupcakes, some had circle ruffles on them and the others had icing / fondant ribbons with the bride and grooms name and a heart design taken from the invitation.
