The shower theme was "blooming" with fresh flowers and the color was lavender.
*Simple white ice cream cups from Mary at PostandTwine on etsy, hold a jumbo sized cupcake perfectly. I baked them in the jumbo muffin tins with no wrapper (use a little Pam). This makes for an individual little "cake" for each guest. Pop it in the cup before adding frosting because the cupcake will be too hard to handle otherwise.
*For the cup decoration I scanned some lavender floral fabric, added my message & printed it out on card stock. You can use any pretty paper that you have or etsy offers a lot of digital downloads of gorgeous papers too. I used a paper punch and attached my tag over a little lavender ribbon. I am the queen of hot glue so I used it for this project as well. Attach the ribbon to its self on the back since the cups are lightly waxed.
* My frosting was a homemade buttercream recipe. I piped on little flowers using a piping bag and star tip.
I added the handmade lavender sugar flower that came from etsy shop mochasof .
*The wooden forks are from etsy shop, maxandolivia . My friend stamped "Bloom" on each one.
The guests loved their individual handmade & homemade cake & fork & so did the guest of honor.
I am still getting compliments!
Happy cupcake baking!
