A Sweet Wedding Proposal
My contribution to A sugar Artists Tea Party" A sweet wedding proposal" In Ladurée style. A beautiful gift for the bride, a pair of lovely teacups and saucers for a romantic proposal for two with some delicious Macarons. And not to forget, the most important thing: The engagement ring The vegan macarons are made of aquafaba (chickpea brine that is used as egg replacer). They were absolutely delicoious! The stone in the engagement ring is made of isomalt. The teacup and saucers are made of gumpaste and handpainted, and Sugar roses and ranunculus to make the proposal complete.
Buttercream Sea Turtle Cake
I made this one out of a egg shaped single layer cake, iced it in white buttercream and airbrushed it.
Cupcake Bouquet And How To Transport Them
I made up these two cupcake bouquets this past weekend for a bridal shower. One bouquet is chocolate and the other is yellow. For the cupcakes I actually used a doctored cake mix. I used Betty Crocker add an extra egg, butter instead of oil, milk instead of water and a tsp of vanilla. The buttercream is an American Buttercream. And a 2D tip to create the hydrangea look. I used a 6in styrofoam ball which I pushed into the pot. I also added some packing tape where the ball and pot meet. I covered the ball with a square piece of green tissue paper which is held down at the base of the ball with a rubber band. If you're worried about the band sliding up, you can add some tooth picks slightly above the band. I then took some darker green tissue paper squares and tucked them into the band all around the bottom. To place the cupcakes on the ball, start at the bottom. I use an extra cupcake liner to figure out placement before I start adding them onto the ball. For the bottom row I add three toothpicks to the ball. Two on the bottom and one slightly above. You watch hem to be slightly angled so the cupcakes don't slide off. I then take a fourth toothpick and insert it through the top of the cupcake liner and into the ball for extra support. The rest of the cupcakes can be added with 2 toothpicks. And lastly cut some tissue squares and add to fill in the holes. If you have any large holes (like I did) add a toothpick in the middle of the hole so that you can wedge a few pieces around it. To transport, I took a 10x10 cake box. I cut a 6" cirlce out of the top of the lid. I also trimmed the bottom of the lid about an inch so that when I inserted the pot it wouldn't be lifted. I put the lid inside the bottom box. You may need to adjust how much you cut depending on the size of your pot. And lastly I placed a piece of grippy shelf liner from the dollar store underneath each and placed them on the floor of my car.
