I'm working with a bride & groom that want cupcakes to pair with champagne & lemonade. Their wedding will have vibrant pops of red in the midst of soft pastel colors. The below cupcake is an "experiment" for them~
Strawberry Lemon Chardonnay (or Champagne!)...Chardonnay cake, filled with strawberry lemon curd, topped with lemon frosting and a strawberry wedge that's rolled in sugared lemon zest.
The next cupcake was inspired by a photo that my friend, Jennifer Young, posted on Instagram of some date caramel ice cream. Instagram provides such awesome visual inspiration and is such a fun way to connect with people through images (I'm completely addicted)! I especially love when people post pics of yummy food. If you're on Instagram, tell me you're "name" so I can follow you for more inspiration.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Date...Chocolate cake with a chocolate, brown sugar, date filling, topped with peanut butter frosting and a chocolate peanut butter "puddle".
Oreo Chocolate Mousse...Chocolate cake over an oreo crust, filled with chocolate mousse, topped with oreo chocolate frosting, oreo crumbs & chocolate sauce.
