Cheerful Wedding Cupcakes

Yesterday was the wedding of some super cool friends of mine Jon and Kas. They asked me to make 200 cupcakes for their reception. So this week has been a busy bakathon. I've never made more than 150. Thankfully my very kind friend Anna lent me her big kitchen which made the mission so much easier (thanks again Anna!) and I had my trusty assistant Rachel on hand to help reload the oven (thanks Shanners!). It was very fun. They let me loose on sprinkles, glitter, polka dots and lots of colour. Here are lots and lots of photos...

I used a simple and light victoria sponge and vanilla buttercream recipe - these were all about the visual impact!

The polka dot baking cups are from here

I'm sending these to Tea Time Treats, hosted by Kate of What Kate Baked and Karen ofLavender and Lovage, as their theme this month is cupcakes and muffins.


  1. These look amazing!! I bought some of those cases a few weeks ago on Ebay because I thought they were SO cute! I got pink ones :) xxx

  2. Thanks Sarah - they are really funky aren't they? I was worried they might not be good quality and absorb the fat in the cake and icing but they were fine x

  3. Wow! 200 cupcakes?! And so so so pretty! Thank you for a marvellous Tea Time Treats entry!

    1. Thank you - yes it was quite a busy day! But really worth it and my friends really loved them.
