Blue fondant covered cupcakes decorated with pink gumpaste roses adorn this small wedding cupcake display. On the top tier is a small six inch cutting cake for the bride and groom to cut during the wedding reception (and of course the little cows on top are optional, hehe!).
Fondant covered wedding cupcakes can help you achieve a uniform and elegant look for your wedding cupcake display. Fondant is ideal if you need to transport your cupcakes a long way because it is less susceptible to smudges and dents unlike frosting.
Making your own gumpaste decorations for your wedding cupcakes is a great way to plan ahead. Gumpaste flowers, such as the pink roses and small blossoms on these blue wedding cupcakes, can be kept in an airtight container for several months before expiring, meaning you can make them well ahead of your wedding day and then place them on your wedding cupcakes right before arranging the cupcakes on your wedding cupcake stand at your reception.

Bright pink gumpaste roses with black accents adorn these stunning wedding cupcakes. The crystal clear wedding cupcake stand is the perfect showpiece to display these professional wedding cupcakes by Bella Cupcakes. The cupcakes appear to have fondant applied to the top which gives a smooth finish. The fact that the wedding cupcakes are alternating in designs on each tier of the cupcake stand, with a small cake for cutting sitting on the top tier lend to the beauty of this piece. Particularly pretty is the satin ribbon with crystal embellishment which is wrapped around the ‘cutting cake’, as well as the gorgeous gumpaste roses in bright pink with black leaves and edible pearl dragees. What makes these pink and black wedding cupcakes so beautiful is how the baker carried the theme of the bright pink roses with black accents throughout the entire display.
If you would like to have your own small ‘cutting’ cake on top of your wedding cupcakes, but are planning to do your own DIY cupcakes, think about turning to a professional bakery just to have them bake your small cake. Usually about 6″ in diameter, the small ‘cutting’ cakes can be affordably purchased from a bakery, especially if you order the cake in plain white, and then adorn the cake yourself with your own handmade gumpaste or fondant decorations, and perhaps a satin ribbon around the base of the cake similar to the cake above.
