Ilani and Ryan got married at Afrique Boutique, and they ordered a wedding cake as well as cupcakes-in-jars for their guests to take home with them. The vanilla and chocolate cupcakes-in-jars were decorated with a green or a blue ribbon and a little wooden teaspoon (which are now impossible to find), and a thank you message on a sticker on the lid – designed and printed for me as always by the fabulous Snapping Turtle Design.
The two-tiered vanilla cake with vanilla butter icing was decorated with blue sugar paste flowers and pearls,
and the bunting was provided by the bride.
I delivered this wedding cake and cupcake-in-a-jar order to Makiti last year.
Inside it’s a bright turquoise velvet cake with cream cheese icing, the top tier is a double height “barrel” cake, covered in white sugar paste. The bottom tier is decorated with upside down sugar paste ruffles, in turquoise ombre, topped with a white sugar paste peony.
The cupcake-in-a-jar wedding favours are also turquoise velvet with cream cheese icing, closed with gold lids, a turquoise ribbon, and a little disposable teaspoon.
