Fondant flower cupcakes and a shower

Last weekend I had the pleasure and the privilege to photograph a friends bridal shower. The day was beautiful and my dear friends garden looked exquisite!
I also was the pastry chef for the day. The bride loves all things pink and feminine, so the cupcakes were ultra girly.
Fondant flower cupcakes

triple fudge cake mix
butter cream frosting ( I will not be sharing mine, only one other person knows it!)
fondant ( either make it or buy pre-made)
Make cupcakes according to directions. Prepare butter cream frosting, lightly frost the middle of the cupcake.
Roll fondant to approximately 1/4 inch on floured surface. Cut out flowers with a cutter slightly bigger than the top of the cupcake.
Gently place fondant flower on top of the iced cupcake and smooth petals down.
To pipe the dots- use a round tip and pastry bag and pipe dots around the petal edges. Place fresh or paper flowers on top with a dot of icing underneath flower to "glue" it down.

Hey, This is Abi Fields, i was in photography with you this spring semester. I am looking for a photographer for my wedding, and i was wondering if you would have any interest? Just curious, and there would most definitely be compensation, i am just looking to gather several people, who i know have real talent, and i'm looking for maybe a portfolio of pictures. Let me know if that is something that you would be interested in! you can email me at

All these photos are beautiful! The cupcakes are gorgeous, so much so that I would've had a hard time eating them.

lovely cupcakes ...

Chris said... cupcakes usually look like Duncan Hines had an accident on a muffin. I am awful at baking!

But those look great! Wonderful event pictures too!
