I have a tasting and consultation for my co-worker and his wife on Saturday who are looking for 175 cupcakes for their July wedding. Their colours are navy blue and yellow. I could use some held picking out 2 flavours of cupcakes.
They suggested blueberry and lemon to match the colours. Since the food will be more upscale, I'd like to combine 2-3 complementary flavours into each cupcake (i.e. not just blueberry cupcakes with blueberry buttercream). Also I know blueberry-lemon cupcakes would be an obvious choice, but they do want 2 different kinds of cupcakes. They also mentioned they like cream cheese and white chocolate. So far I have identified the following flavours:
Blueberry (could be in the cupcakes, cupcake filling or frosting/buttercream)
Lemon (could be cupcake flavour, custard filling or frosting/buttercream)
Cream Cheese (most likely incorporated into frosting)
White Chocolate (most likely incorporated into frosting)
Almond (complements blueberries)
Perhaps incorporate Crème Fraiche or custard into filling?
Any suggestions on how to combine some of these flavours into two knock-your-socks-off cupcakes? Or perhaps other flavours that match navy blue and yellow?
Two potential flavor combinations:
-lemon cupcake with lemon curd filling and a white chocolate buttercream icing (lemon and white chocolate are great together!)
-blueberry cupcake with a cream cheese filling and lemon buttercream icing (think blueberry cheesecake!)
ALemon blueberry cake (lemon cake with blueberries baked in) and a lemon cream cheese frosting.
Then perhaps just a vanilla cake with a white chocolate buttercream. Some people may have allergies or just not like blueberries or lemon.
The bride and groom may want a plain option. :)
