Earlier this year AW's talented mommy, Montgomery area photographer Allison Hilyer, beautifully captured the fun of Mary Ashley's cupcake baking birthday party. So I wanted to return the favor by making a cake or cupcakes for Ann Welch.
These strawberry cupcakes were topped with swirls of buttercream icing piped on with a large star tip. Then with a smaller star tip, I added swirls of turquoise icing. To make the rose toppers, I rolled pink Wilton fondant out thin, cut it into strips and rolled it. For the final icing details, I used a v-shaped tip to pipe three leaves around each rose and used a small round tip to add the zigzag of icing around the rim. Green Wilton candy pearls tucked into the turquoise icing add the final touch.
Still to come this week, a holiday giveaway.
