Cupcakes! Cupcakes! Cupcakes! Cupcakes are everywhere – and now baking cups are part of a wedding dress!
Why would Wilton do such a thing? Because it’s fun, exciting and DIFFERENT! When you look at one baking cup, it may look plain and simple by itself. But when you put them all together, they can create a number of interesting things such as this dress, a topiary, the bride’s headpiece, and even her bouquet!
It is customary here at Wilton to create great new sweet treats, but I thought why not step outside the box and see what we can do with our product that could be eye-catching? I worked with several cake decorators at Wilton to create this dress. The upper bodice is a simple white shirt. The skirt is made of an underlining of material with over 3,000 white baking cups folded together to form the poufy skirt!
Val and Emily worked for hours putting the dress together and then aided by Renee and Tracey, the bride (Emily from our test kitchen) was fitted and ready for her photo session. Hair and make-up done by our own Caroline, headpiece fitted and bouquet placed in hand, we were ready to go.
Who is that guy in the shot? He is a little trip back in time from our original wedding cake topper couple. We photographed and enlarged him to complement Emily. I think they make a great pair!
