Dahlia Cupcakes ~ Bret-Almeroth Wedding

I challenged myself this time by making Dahlia's for Kelly & Kevin's wedding event. The reception was at Holdren's - Downtown.   They were so much fun to make once I got the pattern down.  Using a new food safe spray bottle I dyed vodka and put it in the bottle to spray on the fondant petals to give them varigated color.  It worked great.  I added some shimmer dust to the pink Dahlia's for texture and to tone down the bright pink.

Tier 1 & 2 : Vanilla cupcakes with Strawberry Frosting
Tier 3        : Spice cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting
Tier 4        : Lemon  cupcakes with Vanilla Frosting
Tier 5        : Chocolate Cupcakes with Chocolate Frosting

I was given a cupcake holder (Thanks Kim) and they are great. I bought another one & borrowed hers so I had a total of 3.  Each holder carries 3 dozen each.   They were purchased at Bed Bath & Beyond.

I would like to give a special "Thanks" to Susana for giving up her Friday night to help me make frosting & affix flowers while I frosted the cupcakes and to my sweet husband, Juls for helping me set up and always supporting me and my hobbies.   

Congratulations Kelly & Kevin...May you have a lifetime of love & happiness!
