Clara Designer Cakes: Wedding and WEtv Wedding Cake Wars

We received this photo from Clara's Designer Cakes yesterday and had to share.
Clara used Bella Cupcake Coutures Hannah Citrus and Pink cupcake wrappers. I love all the little sugar flowers she placed on top. Also the real flowers interspersed on the display adds an additional splash of vibrant color.

Clara has a great blog as well. HERE
Make sure to check out the photos of her love for Jukebox's. So stinking cute!!

I especially like her recent blog about being on WEtv's Wedding Cake Wars: HERE

Koru Symbol of Love: by Kiwi Cakes


Sandra from Kiwi Cakes taught me something new about New Zealand wedding traditions. She said many couples choose a Koru as a symbol or theme for their wedding.

The Koru is the Māori name given to the new unfurling fern frond and symbolizes new life, growth, strength and peace. When Sandra of Kiwi Cakes saw our Olivia cupcake wrappers she said it looked so similar to the Koru she was inspired to create a cupcake with them.

Check out Kiwi Cakes full blog post: HERE

Wedding Cupcakes by JLee Wilson (Baby Loves Cupcakes)

Jennifer Lee Wilson (JLee) of Baby Love's Cupcakes sent me this beautiful photo of a wedding cupcake display she did featuring Bella Cupcake Couture.

When I first opened the email, my mouth completely dropped. It is so breathtakingly gorgeous. She really did an amazing job. I like how it is diplayed nicely in front of all the wine barrels. I bet this was a very special evening for all who attended.

It was so great to work with you JLee. I can't wait to see what you will do next. Thanks again for sharing!
