Inge’s excitement over her cake and cupcakes was contagious as she explained to me her idea to present each of her & Mike’s guests with a cupcake in a jar. We met for the first time choosing the glass jars that were to hold her delightful wedding favours. This tall elegant bride was so relaxed with the ideas I showed her and it was easy to then take Inge’s excitement and translate it into this simple but elegant naked wedding cake and these pretty cupcakes in a jar.
The cream ruffled flower was a perfect topping for this naked cake which would not have been complete without the hearts hugging each other close at the base of the cake and resting on the fun swirl embossed cake board.
It is always fun being left to do a variety of cupcake decorations and for Inge and Mike’s wedding I included the kissing hearts, the wood embossed heart with its tiny partner, embossed flowers and ruffled flowers. I popped the vanilla cupcakes with apple buttercream swirls and chocolate chip cupcakes with vanilla swirls into the jars, added loads of pearls and beads to clink daintily in the jars and then closed the flip top lids to keep the cupcakes safe for their trip to the wedding venue.
Inge’s initial response to seeing the photos of her cake and cupcakes was to tell me that … her heart was so happy and the beautiful thank you message after their wedding made my day:
“I cannot say enough thank yous – the cake you made me was absolutely delicious it was so so beautiful and Mike was so impressed. The cupcakes were a winner and I would recommend you to everybody. Everyone was raving about them, they even had cake for breakfast! Thank you, thank you so much.”
