This weekend I made 70 cupcakes for a wedding open house for a longtime gal pal (like since kindergarten-ish). Her new hubby has a fondness for red velvet and she likes lemon, so the flavors were easy to decide on! I practiced beforehand (everyone I knew who sampled them was so bummed they had to help eat cupcakes for scientific reasons...) Lemon recipes here, Red Velvet recipes here.
My favorite part were the little fondant flowers I made for the top-I wanted them to be simple and elegant-hopefully they were. Her colors were navy blue, red, and orange.
Alas, some idiot stole my navy blue liners off my porch after they were delivered! I also figured this out LAST Saturday. YIKES. (it was my bad) Did you know it's extremely hard to find navy blue liners? Well, it is. Trust me. I scoured the interwebs for hours with no luck. (the lovely etsy store I'd ordered them from was out of stock at the moment)
My Silhouette came to the rescue! I downloaded a cupcake wrapper, bought out Michaels' stock of navy blue card stock, and made a bunch of scalloped wrappers! It actually didn't take very long...so I'm excited to make wrappers like these for other occasions! Christmas, New Years, Columbus Day...any day really.
