Rainbow cupcakes

This weekend was my sister in laws sisters mendhi celebration. Sis in law had asked me a few weeks ago if I would help out by making cupcakes in the theme colours for the day. I made about 100 and split the workload over two days which was great because it felt like a lot less work than it actually was. Here’s what I ended up with from beginning to end:

I used a range of toppers to create a simple but striking effect

The final looks..

We got to the venue a little late which meant I had an audience as me and my sisters helped set up (I felt very embarassed!) but when we finished I’m happy to say we did an amazing job, the pink table setting against the cupcake colours was awesome! We left a few on the main dessert table too. As well as this I left my newly made business cards on tables for guests to see and perhaps help me kick start a cupcake business 🙂

What do you think?

very cool henna inspired biscuits made by my sis in law

I had a lovely evening and the bride to be looked gorgeous. The evening went by quickly with plenty of colour, music, fun and games.

I spent much of the evening with my adorable niece who looked the part in pretty pink.

My hard work paid off as I received plenty of compliments from sis in laws and her sisters which I was proud of. I look forward to the wedding now where I hope to eat some cake and take a break from making them 😉 X
