Wedding cupcakes

Another reason why I have also been so busy lately is because last weekend I made my first wedding cupcakes and cake. I was also working full time, so I would get home and make a batch of cakes every evening to freeze, then had to make the big chocolate cake and spent all of last Saturday morning icing them. This was also combined with having to attend my own cousin's wedding and get ready for that, so it was a very stressful week and morning! It was so so worth it thought when I assembled the cake on the cake stand.

I hate to blow my own trumpet, but don't they look great?! I was so pleased with them. The week had been so humid so I was scared that the icing would go sloppy with the heat and not pipe properly, but it went very smoothly. If I ever got married myself I would possibly even consider making my own cake, because it is such a big expense and I don't think I'd be willing to spend £200+ on cakes I know I could easily make myself.

  1. They look fab, well done! I didn't realise you could freeze cupcakes, good to know!

    Apparently though if you make your own wedding cake or dress, that means you'll be condemned to a life of hard work!

  7. They look great! As you may know, Im planning on making my own wedding cupcakes too, though without buttercream, since I have to ice them in advance. But such a good idea to freeye them. How weird I had never thought of that! How many did you make?
