Wedding Dress Cupcakes

This wedding dress cupcake cake is super easy to make for a bridal shower. All you need is:

  • A large board covered in decorative cake paper
  • 30 cupcakes baked in pretty cupcake papers (I chose silver)
  • Buttercream frosting and a pastry bag to pipe it with
  • Silver dragees
  • Parchment paper
  • Decorative ribbon and other embellishments. 

Below is a shot of how I arranged 29 of the cupcakes onto the board. You will see a small gap near the center, but that will be covered by the ribbon after they are frosted.

To make the “neckline” of the dress look straighter I took the last cupcake and cut it into a wedge shape and placed it in between the two cupcakes at the top as shown below, I also wrapped them in the silver cupcake paper to blend in.

To apply the ribbon I recommend cutting a piece of parchment paper the same length and width to place in between the buttercream and the ribbon so that the buttercream doesn’t cause grease spots on the ribbon.
