As the first post besides ‘about me’, I thought I should honour the whole brown and pink theme =) and pick a matching picture. For her wedding, my friend Sam requested these colours and had somewhat of a butterfly decor going, so I made these gumpaste/fondant toppers for her and Adrian. The homemade cupcakes were classic vanilla and chocolate flavours with vanilla and chocolate buttercream.
Just a little add on… it’s been a while since I posted this pic and I’ve had a lot of questions regarding how to make the flowers etc. Really easy actually! I used this sunflower cutter, and a sunflower center from here. For the butterfly I used this small butterfly plunger cutter and here’s a video on making the icing swirl. I’ll post a wee tutorial soon, but suffice it to say, they’re easy to make!
*Update: You can find the tutorial here.
