Red and yellow and pink and green…

I recently made some out of the ordinary wedding cupcake favours – by this I mean with a rainbow theme! Usually when I am asked to make these it is based on a simple cream buttercream and then a little hint of the chosen colours of the Bride and Groom’s wedding theme.  The two Groomsmen had chosen a rainbow style tie for the wedding suits and wanted the favours to match – and I certainly wasn’t going to pass up the opportunity for the spreading of multicoloured love!

As the wedding party had chosen to arrive in a pink Fiat 500 it seemed only right that the main colour for the cupcakes would have to be a sexy hot pink!  I decided to swirl the hot pink in with the cream buttercream and then add multi-coloured sprinkles.

 The cupcake favours were doubling up as place cards so they were finished in little clear gift bags, tied with a ribbon (multi-coloured of course!) and the hand-made place-card/thank you’s were attached.



These were then put at the head of each place setting at the wedding breakfast.  From what I can tell there were two types of reactions to these cupcake favours – 1. Devoured immediately 2. Hidden in bag to take home and admire before no.1 takes place, either way this was a happy brightly coloured day for me!


The now happily married couple are emmigrating to New Zealand in the New Year and I wish them all the success and happiness that life can offer.
