Rockabilly Wedding Cupcake Tower

Wedding Bells were ringing at Heavenly Bites Cakes this past weekend!! I had an order for a Rockabilly theme wedding cupcake tower for an awesome bride and groom who were throwing a really cool reception party for their guests! 

When I first got the order, I wasn't sure what Rockabilly was, so off I went to the internet to educate myself! I did a google image search to get some visuals and found out that "the term “Rockabilly” refers to an early style of rock n roll made popular during the 1950’s. Some popular Rockabilly artists are Elvis Presley & Johnny Cash. In the world of fashion, Rockabilly refers to the clothing styles that were popular during this same time period. Think of Grease (the movie), pin-up girls, and Bettie Paige."  AWESOME!

The bride chose a really fun design of tattoo-like hearts with the word "Love" on them and tiny purple bows for cupcake toppers. For the cake topper decorations, she ordered matching heart tattoo cake toppers with their names on them, roses and a black and white polka dot bow around the base. (inspired by Bella's Cupcakes of New Zealand) Here are the pics!

The cupcakes were red velvet, chocolate and lemon with cream cheese buttercream frosting. The cupcakes with the hearts on them had giant swirls of frosting that the hearts were nestled in. The cupcakes with the purple bows were dipped in buttercream frosting for a smooth finish.

The cake topper was 2 layers of red velvet and 2 layers of chocolate with chocolate ganache filling and cream cheese frosting.

This was such a fun project to work on and I discovered a whole new slew of websites/blogs while researching!! I love learning new things from my clients!! Thanks again for ordering Jen - congrats to you and Dennis and all the best to you in the years to come!! :)
