Gemma and Chris's Wedding Cupcakes

Gemma and Chris were married last weekend on a beautiful sunny day at the Marriott St Pierre Hotel in Chepstow. Chris is the brother of a friend and I was delighted when they asked me to make their wedding cake! Their beautiful wedding was designed around a silver / grey / black colour palate and so they chose to have cupcakes in silver cases on a silver mirrored stand. The lovely couple were heading off on honeymoon on a driving adventure around Europe and so asked me for a giant cupcake top tier cake which they could box up and take with them on their travels! The giant cupcake was a banana cake filled with caramel and frosted with vanilla buttercream!

Gemma and Chris chose three different flavours of cupcake for their wedding: Belgian Chocolate cupcakes with a gooey praline filling topped with white chocolate buttercream, lemon cupcakes filled with lemon curd filling and topped with lemon buttercream and vanilla cupcakes filled with raspberry compote and topped with vanilla buttercream. Each flavour was decorated differently, the chocolate with a sparkly white sugarpaste bow, the vanilla with a large white gerbera with a sparkly centre and the lemon with three mini gerberas with sparkly centres, to tie in with the gerberas on the tables and the bows on the chairs.

Many thanks to Gemma and Chris! It was lovely to celebrate with you in the evening! Wishing you both all of my best wishes and every happiness for the future!
