As you can see from the wedding, the bride loves colorful colors!! And she used gerebera daisies so you will see that was my inspiration. I made these cupcakes for a shower at her work. This was the first time I've ever made gerbera daisies. I don't have a cutter so I used a regular daisy cutter. I used two and layered them to make more petals. Then I used a toothpick to make the indentions in the petals. Then set them in a few bowls covered with aluminum foil to create the shape I wanted. But for most of them I just formed the aluminum foil because I only had 4 small bowls!
For cupcake wrappers, I made them myself! I saw a great template on one of blogs I follow: The Sweet Adventures of SugarBelle. I followed it back to this site: Skip To My Lou. I just used regular stock paper and voila!
Can you tell I was really happy with these?! I still like them :)
Then for the church shower, I had some leftover daisies so I made a few more. I really like them :) The shower was only about a week later than the first.
This cake looks simple enough right? Well I had planned it to be a topsy turvy cake with fondant. Oh goodness gracious.... I did it all. And it looked awful!! I was really upset. But I decided I'd rather it look nice and simple than crappy and "topsy". Then I was nervous about the flowers falling off the cake. So this simple cake took aaaallll day. People have no idea what I go through when I make a cake, haha!
I decided to add the border after I did the flowers... it would've been better to do first, but I'm glad I added it anyway.
I love these colors!
These are at the shower, with the added "A" to the top. That is the initial of the couple's last name. I loved the decor also! It made the cake look so much better than my plan white background.
