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
- Tip 1M
- 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.
I frosted the cupcakes using a tip 1M with large swirls while they were on the board so that I was sure to get full coverage and have the buttercream touch for a continuous look. 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.
I used a spatula to smooth the buttercream along the “neckline” and added silver dragees, but I didn’t attached the ribbon and floral embellishment until the cupcakes were delivered to the shower, I just left the parchment paper on.
