Cupcake tower @ Sarah & Dan's do
We were invited to a beautiful wedding this weekend at Silvermere golf club by the lovely Sarah and Dan. The day was perfect executed with handmade decorations and a mink colour scheme.
The wedding cake was a lovely cupcake tower made by bridesmaid Michelle. The cupcakes were chocolate or vanilla sponge and iced with some fab 2 tone buttercream icing and mini roses. At the top of the tower a cutting cake was adorned with real flowers matching the brides bouquet.
The cupcakes were displayed in gorgeous cupcake wrappers featuring delicate leaves and roses and placed on a clear acrylic stand. Rose petals were sprinked across the display table completing the look. Great job Michelle!
Cake stands... or lack of...
Whilst researching the latest wedding cake designs i have discovered the limitations of cake stands available in the UK. They are either heavy silver or gold shiny lumps or weird alien lampshade designs which hold cakes at different levels or see through acrylics - Not my style at all. There is a few cupcake stands and vintage looking cake plates but not a huge choice and no specialist UK suppliers.
The US seem to have a much better selection. I like the fabric sash stands from raisethecake.com which are custom designed to match your wedding cake colour scheme. If you are looking for a vintage feel therochestudio.com has a nice selection of vintage cake stands for sale in a varity of styles and designs from large wedding cake platters to small single cupcake stands. And look at the cute wraught iron cupcake trees by bosscupcakestands.com! I want one!
Luckily they all ship to the UK!
