I have a cupcake wedding tomorrow. The bride made wrappers from different patterned scrapbook paper - stripes, plaid, polka dots, ect- all bubble gum pink and brown. I am doing a 6" round for the cutting. It is extra tall, iced in pink and wrapped around the bottom with brown ribbon with small pink polka dots.
My question is what should i do on the rest of the cake??? She doesnt have a topper and really doesnt have any preference. I am on a very tight schedule so I need something fairly simple.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
what about small brown polka dots on the pink fondant? Fairly simple. Or stripes since she has some striped wrappers...
If you want something vertical, maybe you could make an initial out of RI to use on top too.
What about just a big swirl of frosting, like a traditional cupcake? Use pink, and then add brown dots that look like sprinkles.
Or, something about the dots and stripes and so on makes me think a bow would be the right style of topper. If you have enough of the ribbon that's wrapping the bottom, use it -- No drying time needed! -- or make it out of gumpaste.
Stripes up the sides, possibly a bow on top, maybe a standard bow, not a loop bow.
