How to Make a Cupcake Wedding Dress
So I came across this great cupcake wedding dress recipe on Just a Sliver and Pinspired Creations blogs (who did an amazing work!!! )and wanted to share it with you as you can also prepare it for a birthday or any other special occasion!
To make the cupcakes, you’ll need
- a package of Duncan Hines French Vanilla Cake mix
- 1 package 8 oz. cream cheese
- 4 large eggs
- ½ cup water
- ½ cup vegetable oil
- ½ cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
To make the vanilla buttercream, you’ll need:
- 1 cup (2 sticks) butter
- 4 cups confectioners’ sugar
- 2 oz. cream cheese
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2-4 teaspoons water
For the cupcake cake
- 1 13″x19″ cake board
- 22 cupcakes
- 2 batches of the above vanilla buttercream recipe
- Pearl or other white sprinkles
- 3 strands of beads, pearls, or sequence (found at Michael’s)
First, preheat the oven to 350°. Line muffin tin with paper liners.
Put all the ingredients in a large bowl then use an electric mixer on low speed to mix them all. Increase to medium speed for 2 more minutes.
Use the mixture to fill muffin tins. They should be 3/4 full.
Bake for fifteen to eighteen minutes.
To prepare the frosting, mix the cream butter and cream cheese for about 3 minutes until the mixture becomes light and smooth then add confectioners’ sugar. Add vanilla extract and water. Beat on medium speed for 5 minutes to make light and fluffy.
When the cupcakes are cool, lay them out as in the picture. Use a knife to spread a little bit of frosting on the bottom of each cupcake so they stick to the cake board.
Frost your cupcakes using a piping bag. The space between cupcakes should be filled, no vacant spots.
Sprinkle with pearl or white sprinkles. One at a time, place the strand of pearls at the “belt” of the dress.
