I love the look of this cupcake wedding dress, and it looks to me like they arranged the cupcakes and then decorated it with "shells", but more of a vertical shell than a horizontal one.  What can anyone tell me about how to get this effect?  Any other comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks so much!

AIt's really hard to tell. Im usually not a big fan of pull apart cakes or whatever they're called but I really like how the added the color around the edges and Dragees, it's cute. It looks like they iced them individually, then after placement filled in the gaps. I think that's how they're typically put together anyway, but the icing seems to be going in all sorts of different ways, which is nice b/c it's gives a flowing illusion to the 'dress'

Well, this is how my version turned out.  The accents were from the bride, so I didn't have a say in that.  Mine doesn't quite fill out like the one in the original post, but for a first try, it's not too bad.  We put a little dab of frosting on the bottom of the cupcakes to keep them in place, and all I did was make rosettes with an M1 tip.  Next time I will pay more attention to the outline so that it "flows" better.
