{DIY} How to Make Beautiful Wedding Dress Cupcakes with Fondant

How absolutely incredible is this wedding dress cupcake! When I saw the tutorial Vanessa from Apple Blossom Cupcakes put together, my mouth dropped open. You mean, with this tutorial I don't need to be a fondant artist like Vanessa to make something so beautiful?!

So if you want the simple steps, here you go... brought to you by Vanessa. :)

I love working with fondant and creating little artistic wonders. For a close friend’s wedding, I remade her dress out of fondant and cake which was a hit at her bridal shower!

You can color the dress to match the bride's dress and even add embellishments that match the flowers and dress details!

SUPPLIES:

  • 2 cupcakes baked and unwrapped
  • 1 cup of icing (bagged)
  • 1 lollipop stick
  • Rolling pin
  • Fondant
  • Ruffled fondant cutter
  • Paint brush
  • Water
  • Plate
  • Spatula
  • Choice of fondant tools

DIRECTIONS:

(To make the top of the dress)

Roll out a thick piece of fondant. Fold it over a popsicle stick.


Cut out your wedding dress top design.

(To make the skirt)

Place a dab of icing on your plate and stack your cupcakes, gluing the cupcakes together with icing as well.


Ice the entire cupcakes and smooth over with your spatula.


Roll out a medium piece of fondant and roughly cover your cupcakes.

Use a fondant cutter, cut out a ruffle. Using your choice of tools, roll out each piece to make the petals of the skirt.

‘Glue’ the ruffles in layers on your cupcakes using a paint brush and water, starting at the bottom and moving your way up. Keep adding layers until you are done.

Lightly press the dress ‘top’ lollipop stick into the base and you are done! Beautiful!

You can add embellishments to personalize the dress or keep it plain and simple!

Thank you, Vanessa, this is incredible!!

And if you don't have time to make the dresses yourself for your next party or shower but still want some, Vanessa sells this variation in her Etsy shop, and can ship them directly to you.

Amazing Cakes

I saw this site on chow.com and had to share it. It's called idreamofcake.com and these are the most insane cakes I’ve ever seen! My favorites are the handbag cakes. Come on, a Birkin bag cake, how can you get any better than that? When I’m rich, I will be having one of those for my birthday... along with the real thing, obv.
