What is better than a tray of pink cupcakes? Three trays of pink cupcakes! When we first spoke about an afternoon bridal tea, we considered petit fours,traditional cupcakes, and sliced party cake. But minis seemed like the perfect way to play with the green and pink floral theme and give everyone the right amount of sweet.

With a small bite of cake it has to pack a punch. The batter is a rich egg and butter cake with a nice vanilla kick. Then they are topped with fluffy vanilla buttercream and flowers made from marshmallow fondant and candy-coated sunflower seeds. The flowers nestle into pillows of buttercream and are complimented by the really fun leaf-shaped paper liners that I found last month at Fran’s Cake and Candy supply shop. I have been saving them for the perfect occasion and this turned out beautifully.

Cake Details:
Cake: Vanilla Party Cake
Icing: Vanilla Buttercream
Decorations: Punched flowers from tinted marshmallow fondant. The centers are candy coated sunflower seeds (this color scheme is from Trader Joes). Cupcake liners are green leaf shapes, but I don’t know the manufacturer. I picked these up at Fran’s Cake and Candy in Fairfax,VA.
