My sister is getting married in October and her fiance has asked me to do red velvet cupcakes for his grooms cake. Since I'm the maid of honor in the wedding and will be doing showers/parties the week before the wedding, I don't have a ton of time to do something elaborate, but I don't want to just throw down plain cupackes...I want to customize them to him somehow. He is a pretty avid skateboarder and his all time favorite band is Guns n Roses. I thought about maybe making little chocolate skateboards to put on top of each cupcake but wasn't sure if that would look good. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated! Something simple that would still look good. Thanks in advance!
Skateboard wheels would be cute. They come in all differn colors and designs. One large wheel on each cupcake but all dfferent ones. Also if he has a favorite brand, such as element or something, you can do the design of that. HTH!
I was thinking skate board decks-- but I like the wheels idea better-- maybe you can do both.
And you could make them out of gumpaste well in advance.
find a pic of Guns & Roses and have edible image cupcake toppers done...they come on sheets of 12 I think...or even a cool skateboard image.
I found this pic on CC. Cupcakes made to look like a skateboard. I think it would look cute if you got the edible image of Guns n Roses and put it on the skateboard.
You could make the cake stand to look like skateboards.
These are all great ideas! And how do I go about doing the edible image? Never actually done one of those before.
find a picture...there are places you can take or send it to online that make sheets of 12 for you. Just google cupcake edible images. My local cake/candy supply store would do it for me. not sure where you live. I am in Ohio.
