I was asked to do a wedding cake for a couple that got married in St Lucia and then had a party when they got home. There theme was yellow and white with flowers and hearts, and the bride loves lilys so wanted the top cake to have lilys cascading down. I made 180 plain sponge cupcakes, 90 with vanilla buttercream and 90 decorated with sugarpaste with a 6 inch traditional victoria sponge centre piece for the top.
I was so proud of myself when i saw the finished tower all set up at the reception, my first Wedding Cake, two full days of baking and it looked amazing, i couldn't help but cry a little bit! The feedback i got from people at the reception was fantastic, everybody thought my top cake was beautiful and the cupcakes went down a treat. I think cupcake towers are going to become very popular as wedding cakes, they look great and with no cutting up to do you can just grab a cupcake and carry on with the party!
