showers, 3 ways

Cupcakes, three ways, for a baby shower. Brown background with bright pink, green, white and blue polka-dots. I incorporated the pink, brown and white and made three distinct batches of cupcakes for the occasion.

1) Red velvet cupcakes topped with cream cheese buttercream and a pink gumpaste "Baby" topper, small sugar blossoms and silver dragees.

2) Chocolate cupcakes with chocolate buttercream, hot pink blossoms, daisies and silver dragees (again).

3) Vanilla cake with pale pink cream cheese buttercream and a footprint topper, white blossoms and (you guessed it!) silver dragees.

It was a ton of fun getting to exercise my creative side with three dozen cupcakes while sticking to a beautiful colour scheme.
