Finally showcasing the cupcakes I made for the June wedding. It was a simple backyard affair and I was given the creative freedom to run to decorate some garden-themed cupcakes since the couple enjoyed gardening.
I made these cupcakes using the help of the Hello,Cupcake! book. The dirt is made up of crushed Oreo cookies and the signs, or seed packets, are made out of graham crackers. Most of the veggies in the garden are made up of Starbursts or Tootsie Roll chew-able candies. While I am proud of how well the vegetables came out, I am especially proud of the signs I made out of graham crackers. I covered the front with melted white chocolate and drew all the pictures with frosting by free-hand. I added the "Just Married" sign and the "S+E" with rose buds and vines as a last minute touch instead of the shovels and recommended in the book.
I was lucky to have found the planter's box at Target the weekend before and it matched the fence of the venue perfectly! My initial problem with it was that the bottom was to narrow and would not allow all of the cupcakes to fit. Armando cut out a piece of cardboard and wrapped it with brown paper and placed it in the planters box so that all 24 cupcakes could fit. More Oreo dirt was placed between the cupcakes during our set up. I placed my business cards next to my display and the order was complete. My clients were happy with what I created for them and I was glad that all of the cupcakes made it without any accidents. That is all thanks to Armando for driving carefully to the venue. I am especially grateful that he took photos of these cupcakes.
Hope you enjoy these photos as much as I did, and enjoy shopping my picks inspired from these cupcakes.
Until next time,
