Brides April: Turquoise and Orange

Friday, March 19, 2010

Recently, we had the pleasure of creating a mini cake and mini cupcakes for the April issue of Brides Magazine.  The desserts were designed to complement the orange and turquoise cake stands that are made from repurposed candlesticks by a Seattle based company iacoli & mcallister

*For the mini cake: The paillettes were made with an #806 tip and pressed in the center with a ball tool for a cupped shape.  Then orange royal icing dots are pipped in the center.

*For the cupcakes: Orange disks were topped with A's (using FMM gumpaste letter cutters) and a turquoise dot border. 

 These would be a good addition to a wedding dessert table or even an intimate bridal shower.
