Black & Teal Wedding Cake & Cupcakes

Happy Friday! So glad the weekend is finally here! I'm going to keep this post short and sweet because 1) Its been a LONG week & I'm tired, 2) I've got more baking to do for a couples shower/crawfish boil tomorrow and 3) Randolph just put some ribs on the grill with his "special dry rub" seasoning so dinner will be ready shortly! So I will leave you with some photos of a wedding cake and cupcakes I made for a reception last weekend.

Tracy, the bride sent me some great photos for inspiration to work with when designing her cakes and cupcakes inspired by the napkins she was going to use at her recption. I just love the black and teal theme!

I used royal icing to pipe on the swirls and squiggles.

Tracy bought the cupcake tower online and then covered each individual tier with a black damask wrapping paper and covered the edges in teal ribbon. This is a super easy DIY project and very affordable and easy to assemble! I decorated each cupcake with 4 black fondant flowers and silver dragees. The flowers were made using this daisy flower plunger from Layer Cake Shop.

Congratulations Tracy! I had so much fun making your wedding cake and cupcakes! I wish you much happiness with your new groom!
