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 ( 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 fields.abigail@gmail.com

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

Huh.....my 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!
