This week I had the opportunity to provide the dessert for a darling girl who was celebrating her upcoming wedding with a shower on Valentine’s Day. Unfortunately, it was a cold, blustery, snowy Saturday. But her family and friends braved the weather and were there to wish her well (and to enjoy a few cupcakes :0)
These fresh raspberry and cream cupcakes are a vanilla bean cake filled with fresh raspberry mousse. Topped with a pillow of raspberry buttercream and a swirl of vanilla-bean buttercream, they are crowned with a sugared fresh raspberry to add to the Valentine theme…
The bride-to-be also ordered sour cream chocolate/marshmallow and chocolate turtle cupcakes (see later posts), so I provided her with flavor signs and set up the display at the venue (these pictures are taken with my ipad, so they are a little dark).
I typically don’t get to see this part of the process, so it was a pleasure to deliver my goodies and help with the set up.
Congrats on your wedding, Ashley! I hope you and your guests enjoyed the cupcakes!
