engagement wedding cupcake decorating ideas inspired by michelle cake designs

engagement, wedding cupcake decorating ideas inspired by michelle cake designs

These are some engagement cupcakes I made the other week for a lovely couple. The colours and design details match their engagement invitations.

The brown boards you can see are brown fondant covered cake boards with white blossoms and white ribbon trim. These were used to display the cupcakes in the centre of the tables – acting as centre pieces for the evening which I thought was a clever idea as it reduced the costs for the party but still made a lovely and personal display. I have only shown the boards with a few cupcakes on them as I did not want to damage them. The paper cases also matched the theme colours.

The cupcakes were three different flavours – chocolate mud, white mud and caramel mud. Two had rolled fondant tops with chocolate ganache underneath the other design had buttercream swirls.

Bye for now, Michelle

Baby showers vary so much in size so in this gallery of cake designs I have included cupcakes which can be for a small family gathering or on mass for an over the top celebration.

The pregnant belly cake can be decorated in a dress that suits the colour scheme of the baby shower or the mother-to-be’s favourite dress or to match her personality.

I have a How to make the fondant nappy page on my website http://www.inspiredbymichelle.com.au they are really easy and can be made in advance making decorating the cupcakes on the day quick and easy.

The baby bottle cakes can be done in absolutely any design and colours – they could have a design on them that matches the invitation.

In the night garden is very popular – not that I understand any of it!! so it is not surprising Igglepiggle, Upsy Daisy and Makka Pakka are also popular when it comes to birthday cakes. These are a few fondant cakes I have made recently – I hope you find them useful when designing your own cakes.

The little ghost cupcakes are so quick and easy – they are just marshmallows with eyes that I made out of fondant. I should also say that the instructions for the little nappy / diaper on the baby shower cupcakes can be found on my Baby Shower Cupcakes page.

These are just a few of the fun cake designs I get to make or I guess you could also call them novelty cakes.

Usually they are for birthday celebrations young and old but there is a wedding cake and a kitchen tea cake amongst them.

I particularly loved the challenge of making the birthday cake bus carry partying dogs to a 30th party – the design came from the smilebox animated invitation.

This is the communion cake I was talking about when I made the pink, blossoms communion cake post. This cake was actually for a combination Confirmation and First Holy Communion celebration. It was also for a boy and the green colours were inspired by the handmade invitation. Silver was added to match the silver cross which was also used on the invitation.

It was decided stars would be a nice addition as it was for Thomas and they have been used around the base of the cake some on the top and the dove has been embossed with stars.

I love the simplicity of these two communion cake designs. I think small hearts could also be used and of course any colour combination. I think it could also look amazing in white on white with maybe gold or silver detail if you wanted some colour.
