Pretty Palette Wedding Cupcakes

Kate was a very astute bride in her sense of design and colour! I loved working with her pretty colour palette of white, grey, green and lavender. A slew of rainy days bookended Chris and Kate’s sunny late September wedding — pretty amazing and flukey to have a small block of sun amidst days and days of grey rain!

The cupcakes were white vanilla buttercream rose topped raspberry jam filled vanilla cupcakes, dark chocolate cupcakes with vanilla cream cheese frosting (some tinted lavender) and dark chocolate cupcakes with pale green rosette buttercream, all in silver cupcake liners. The cake was a dark chocolate cake covered in fondant with quilting and pearling, and a simple grey fondant ribbon trim with mini bow!

Matching the colours to the paper colour swatches reminded me of mixing colours in art school…!

Congratulations Kate & Chris!
