Initial Announcement Cake and Cupcakes is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cupcakes are beautiful and not that hard to decorate. I love to make cupcakes. Especially for the kids. Lot less mess. You have to take your time with each cupcake and treat it as if it is a miniature cake. I would give this decoration of cupcakes a very high rating. All of the decorations are done beautifully. And the round cake on the top sets it off. What could make it pretty also is to do the icing on the cupcakes in coordinating colors. Or possibility with a theme - sports, summer time, princesses (for the little girls!) etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this for a baby shower and it was very simple. Instead of the monogram I made a baby carriage using fondant. I simply used a cirlce cookie cutter and cut out a quarter of the circle, then added 2 small circles for the wheels, and added a little details. I also made little butterflies and flowers using fondant. Make fondant pieces a day or two ahead of time to dry. Once you frost cupcakes, its is super easy to attach fondant pieces. This design is super easy to make, and there are endless possiblities on designs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you make this according to the directions, then I would say working with all of the mediums (fondant, pearl dust, baking cupcakes, making the fondant letter and flowers) is somewhat easy, but time consuming. So for this reason, I would thing the avg person would find this medium. I love the flower making kits, they offer a variety of sizes that all fit together nicely. The pearl dust gives just an extra touch! And the roll and cut mat is fabulous for the fondant. Happy Baking!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This idea is perfect for weddings and showers. Making the 6" cake on top is a great way to finish it all off. You can add the same "topper" to the cake and then mini toppers to the cupcakes. The cupcakes make it easier for guests and prevents the couple or hostess from having to cut a cake and pay for serving costs. This is a "grab and go" way to do it, yet still personalize it the way the customer wants.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I also modified this idea. I used silver baking cups, iced 2/3 of the cupcakes white and added a pink rose. the other 1/3 I iced pink and added a Hershey's kiss. A small 6" cake was iced and the top decorates with pink roses and in the middle of the roses I placed two kisses and made the papers of the kisses form a heat. The 6" cake was used as the top cake for the bride and groom to cut.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This isn't half as hard as it looks. Its rather simple, actually. I made this for a sweet sixteen in different colors, and it wowed everyone! Cupcakes are the new trend, which I am absolutely loving. Its easier to make different flavors to please everyone in cupcakes rather than in cake. try this out! its really quite simple!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I took this idea and tweaked it a little bit to make it instead for my daughter's birthday. We had the party outside of our home and I thought that a cupcake tier like this would still have a cake look to it, but there was no need for knives or even plates! It was a huge success. Your cupcake stands are a great idea!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is such a great display for a wedding and also works great at wedding showers or birthdays. The initial on top is easy to make and I love the idea of displaying cupcakes instead of a cake. Every guest gets their own treat.
