Bridal Shower Food and Fun in Dark Blue, Peach and Grey!

Double Chocolate Cupcakes I spent the weekend helping Courtney with a Bridal Shower that she was throwing for her friend Keeley so in other words I had a great weekend, I got to hang out with Cort and make goodies!  Keeley’s colors are dark blue, peach and grey so we tried to incorporate those as much as possible. First up, these cupcakes which I think just turned out so cute!  They are the Double Chocolate Cupcakes with Truffle Filling topped with our favorite Buttercream Icing and then finished with little chocolate decorations that I made with some Wilton Orange Candy Melts mixed with some white candy melts to make them more of a peach color and a candy mold.  The dark blue cupcake liners came from Pick Your Plum of course.  They were easy to make but a little time consuming.  I used a squeeze bottle to get the chocolate in the molds are they were really small and delicate. Mini Bridal Shower Stripper Cake Up next, a mini stripper cake of course, apparently we are stripper cake decorators now!  This cake it is only about 6″ high, the bottom layer is about 6″ across, middle is 4″ and top is only about 2″, so it’s tiny.  The cake is Brown Sugar made from the White Almond Sour Cream cake recipe with brown sugar subbed in for the white, the infamous Buttercream Icing (see link above), Wilton White Fondant which you can buy at Michaels, some peach ribbon around the layers and some flowers to adorn, both also from Michaels and then to finish a paper straw “pole” and a Polly Fashion little dude for the stripper and that’s enough about that I think. Bridal Shower Candy Takeaway Treats While I was making the cupcake toppers, I made some little chocolate hearts in dark blue and peach as takeaway gifts using Wilton candy melts and some Valentine heart shaped molds.  The little green bags (didn’t have any appropriate sized bags in the wedding colors) came from the big craft sale near me in the old Kmart building and the Washi tape (in grey) came from Pick Your Plum, one of my all time favorite websites!  Some labels printed off and these were good to go. Flower Centerpieces I know these aren’t food and that this is a food blog but Cort made these and them came out so adorable and coordinated so well with everything else that I just had to share them, flowers and ribbon from Michaels of course!  And kudos to Cort on her flower arranging skills. Congratulations Keeley on the upcoming nuptials!   And thanks Cort for letting me play!

    • Thank you, I was pretty pleased with the way those cupcakes turned out. That white almond sour cream cake recipe is my go to recipe for the fondant cakes, everyone always loves it, no matter what flavor we make it.
