Bridal Shower Cupcakes

Wednesday, April 8, 2015

I shared with you a few weeks ago some photos of the bridal shower we had for our daughter, Olivia.  Today I'm going to share with you the beautiful cupcakes we had for dessert...

How to make a wedding dress using cupcakes.  Perfect for any bridal shower from Walking on Sunshine Recipes.

When I first started planning Olivia's bridal shower, I asked my friend Lisa if she could help by making cupcakes and then arranging them into the shape of a wedding dress.  
She did such an AMAZING job!
Everyone at the shower was impressed with the end result.

Here's Lisa arranging the cupcakes into the shape of the wedding dress...

Starting to frost the cupcakes...

Lisa did all this while guests were arriving and watching her...

Such a steady hand...

Lisa uses these disposable bags and tips from Wilton...

Icing all done...

Now to add the burlap flowers...

These burlap flowers were very similar to the ones we used on the cupcakes...


My daughter, Olivia and I in front of the cupcake dress...

I'm so thankful that Lisa was able to create such a beautiful cupcake dress
for Olivia's shower.  She is so talented and makes beautiful cakes for her family.

She even had a few of us over to her house a few times to teach us 
how to properly decorate cupcakes and use piping bags.

Here's a photo of a few of the cupcakes she taught us how to make...

 Here's a photo of Lisa, her daughter, Jessie and her mom, Cathy
from last year's Mother/Daughter Tea at our church...

As you can see from some of the photos, we used a lot of ball jars. 
I have a pretty large collection at home, but we also purchased
the new blue ball jars.  I love them.  They're very affordable and there
was no fear of anyone accidentally breaking my antique ball jars.  

Lisa and her mom, Cathy, also helped out with the flower arrangements
for the shower.  They did such a beautiful job...

I'm so thankful for their friendship and for their willingness
to help make Olivia's shower so beautiful!  

The photos from our bridal shower were taken by our good friend

Please visit her Facebook page for information on 
booking her for your special event.

I highly recommend scheduling someone to come
and take photos and capture your special moments.  I never
would have thought to take photos of Lisa putting the cake
together, but Suzanne did!
