focus on: Cupcakes!
If you haven't noticed yet, cupcakes are all the rage these days, especially for weddings. I'm not talking about any old cupcakes made from a box and slathered with frosting...I am talking about couture cupcakes--works of art that are hand-crafted by gourmet bakers/artists. Today I bring you a sampling from around the world. Be prepared to be amazed.
First up: Sugarbloom Cupcakes!
Are you in love yet? Sugarbloom is owned by Bev, and located in Perth, Australia. I found her on flickr--I saw a thumbnail of that very first photo above and was instantly intrigued...I got lost browsing her stream. I mean, did you see that black bow and rhinestone buckle? Wow! I will say it again...wow!!
Just look at these fabulous floral designs:
Bev is an amazing inspiration for new concepts and super creative ideas...check out her delicious looking "tall" cupcake:
And for the bride & groom that still want to cut the cake, Bev has you covered:

Thank you, Bev for allowing me to show off your work! :)
Next, we travel to Durban, South Africa where the lovely Zahirah is creating gorgeous cupcakes in all of my favorite colors!
Ms. Z's company is called cupcake d'lights and they truly are a delight to look at...I can only imagine how delicious they taste! Her style is whimsical and feminine...she even does shabby chic!
I can imagine how thrilled the bride was that ordered these:
(I wonder if they looked even better than the actual bouquets?!)
Here is a great centerpiece idea:
And a nice, classic design:
