Black and White 30th Hi Tops

A darling close friend of mine was turning 30, people were coming from all ends of Australia to celebrate, she was having a Black and White Gathering. Perfect for an idea that had been swimming around in my head for awhile now.
Hi Top Cupcakes with either Almond or Peppermint Meringue, dipped in either white or dark chocolate, I left the meringue white this time, so to fit with the colour scheme. Styled with a dusting of white edible glitter, a corresponding handmade fondant flower and leaves on each, with piped swirls in corresponding chocolate.


HAPPY 30th BIRTHDAY SHELL


Very labour intensive but the effect is stunning, my chocolate piping could have been tidier but I am my worst critic. I was going to display them on a custom designed stand, but felt the simplicity of the Donna Hay stand set would do nicely.

These darling little cupcakes would be perfect for a contemporary wedding in the Black and White Theme using them as something scrummy to have with coffee. As usual with cake and cupcakes, the possibilities are endless.
