So, on 29th April 2011 Prince William and Kate Middleton are getting married. Those in the UK are getting a day off work to celebrate, and what do we do at Cupcake Decorating Ideas when we want to celebrate something? Yes, we come up with Cupcake Ideas for it so you can make your own at home.
We are basically looking at union jack colours and royal symbols. So as always, let start with the more simple ideas out there that you can try. These cakes could also be made for the Queens Jubilee comming up in 2012.
First of are these quirky cupcake from Tesco Real Food I love the strong deep colours of the icing. It just goes to show you don’t need fancy icing equipment have fancy icing. Tesco have also included a recipe for the cupcakes and instructions for making the crowns.
If you have a steady hand you can try piping little union jacks, like on these cupcakes as shown on English Wedding
These cakes from Completely Cakes are cute. If you don’t have time to order in edible picture decorations you could try just printing pictures out on paper and sticking them to the tops of toothpicks as decorative flags to be removed before eating.
If however you do have time to order some edible photos, why not try placing them on buttercream frosting in Union Jack colours? I do not know who made these cupcakes, so if you know, please tell me so I can credit them.
No British street party can be complete without bunting, why not try these hand painted bunting flags stringed together with strawberry lace, courtesy of Cupcake Revolution.
As we get into more complicated designs, we move onto royal purple, which I love with gold. These crowns are perfect for the royal wedding and the little cameo ‘W+K’ in the background are a special touch. These cupcakes are by Rachael Walker and shown on Good To Know.
These cakes are as if the royal butler made them himself, pure perfection, not a touch out of place. Made by Donna Makes Cakes.
If you are making these cakes for the Queens Jubilee you can easily change some of the elements to be more fitting to the situation.
Finally, less focus on the ‘Royal’ and more on the ‘Wedding’, look at this elegant design by. You could always use a photo of Kate Middleton in place for the head. Once again, I cannot find who made these, so please let me know if they’re yours.
