Isn't this a wonderful idea for a bridal shower! You could make the dress to match the colors and style of the bridal parties dresses.
I also loved the idea of putting them on candle holders to serve them. Makes them even more special looking.
This is the type of pan used. But you could use any type you have really.
Here is one that was baked in more of an oval pan.
To make the top part you just pour melted white chocolate into a dress form sucker mold. You can find these on line if you Google dress form candy mold.
You stick the chocolate into the cupcake and then start to decorate your dress with fondant or you could even use buttercream icing.
Make ruffles and start at the bottom and work your up to the top. There is a ruffle cutter you can purchase to use with your fondant. There are also special ruffle tips you can buy to use with your buttercream icing.
The top can be made how you like. Give the dress a halter top, make it strapless or give it sleeves. Be creative and make it to match the bridesmaid's dresses.
I just love this idea. Decorate your cupcakes to look like they are flowers and then put them in a basket to present them in. Looks like a wonderful bouquet of flowers!
Or you can staple 5 oz Dixie cups together to make a cupcake bouquet. Do not bake in the Dixie cups. Just put baked cupcakes in them.
They now have luster dust spray colors. They look much better then this photo shows. It gives the icing a pearl like color to the cupcakes. They come in many colors.
Add a few cupcake picks to your bouquet and a banner and you are set to go. Put a ruffle around the bottom if you want to finish it off.
Everyone loves cupcakes and these are few new ways you can used them not only as your dessert but also as your table center pieces.
I'll show you how to do a Topsy Turvy cake tomorrow.
Sadly my ghost hunting tour didn't pan out. My sister, Maureen and I went and waited for about 45 mins but no one showed up. I'm sure we were in the right meeting spot.
Since no one showed up we were going to go to the park the group was going to go to. We thought we would conduct our own investigation. However, the park had a fence around the whole place with signs saying to KEEP OUT ~ DO NOT ENTER and other signs saying it wasn't going to be open until Aug 2009.
I'm not sure what happened as I have not heard back from the group leader.
The park we were going to go to is said to be haunted because a mother had killed her son there. I'm not sure if it's the son or the mother that is said to have been seen there.
Oh well, maybe next time!
