Kate and Dominic's Romantic Cupcakes and Cookies

The lovely Kate and Dominic were married yesterday on a beautiful sunny spring day at Peterstone Court hotel near Brecon. The style of the wedding was elegant, vintage, country garden chic and the cupcakes needed to tie in with this feel! Kate and Dominic chose four different flavours of cupcake: Sumptuous Chocolate (Belgian chocolate sponge topped with white chocolate buttercream, Vanilla Vanilla, Strawberries & Cream and Carrot cupcakes with cinnamon cream-cheese frosting. The top tier cake was a moist Belgian chocolate cake filled and covered with decadent white chocolate buttercream frosting.

Each flavour cupcake was decorated in a different floral style to tie in with the flowers on the tables and in the bouquets. The bridesmaids had beautiful dusky pink dresses and so we decided to stick to a dusky pink / cream colour palate. Each cupcake was finished by being encased in a beautiful filigree cupcake casing to keep the cupcakes looking sumptuously vintagely elegant!

Kate and Dominic also asked me to make vanilla cookie favours / place settings for their guests. They decided upon heart shaped cookies for the men iced in dusky pink and overpiped with cream filigree royal icing to mimic the style of the cupcake cases. The ladies were treated to either shoe shaped or handbag shaped cookies iced with cream cream royal icing and then piped and decorated with dusky pink sugar flowers. I made a special cookie for Kate with K and D piped in royal icing:

It was so lovely to see Kate on the morning of the wedding to see her reaction to the cake! Thank you for my lovely chocolates, and for being such fun to work with! I hope you both had a truly wonderful day! Wishing you every happiness for the future!
