Tie Dye Cupcake Tower
I'm so excited to share this job with you. I actually made this tie dye cupcake tower last summer in the UK but have been waiting for the photos from the party hostess. To be honest, with the moving country and having a baby thing, I wasn't really chasing them. But here they are and wow it looks good if I don't mind saying so myself! I'm so pleased with how this turned out.
So the party was a 50th and was a 70's/Flower Power theme. The venue was the Putney Rowing Club, a massive room with a balcony overlooking the Thames. I was also involved in the decor side of things so will post a few piccies of that too.
But the main event was the cupcake tower. Each cupcake was made with three amounts of different coloured cake batter, an easy enough thing to do but hardcore when there's 120 cupcakes to be made! I used white cupcake cases so that the tie dye effect would show through. White cupcake cases always become transparent once the cake is baked. I kept the icing plain white and mixed three different types of sprinkles for the top.
If you fancy trying this yourself you can take a look at my Fantasy Cake and Brilliantly British blog posts for the how-to's.
- Helium balloons of course - you can never have too many.
- Colourful pipe cleaners to liven up the centre pieces.
- Tie dye bunting and hippie inspired backdrop.
