I made Vintage Tea Party Cupcakes & my new Cake Stand Set ♥

Firstly, sorry for the really photo heavy post! I made these cupcakes last week and I’m super proud of them so I wanted to show them off! It was my first go at doing a few fondant topped cupcakes, some are domed and some are flat. The rest have buttercream rose swirls, and they’re all topped with handmade vintage tea party sugar decorations. I love making the little teacup, cupcake, and teapot decorations because I can use two different icing colours and they blend in nicely. I’m also getting a little bit better at making the pretty bows! I baked the cupcakes in my new pretty floral cupcake cakes from Lakeland, and I also thought it would be a good opportunity to get out my new cake stand set for some photos!
I won this cake stand and three matching teacups from Kiki’s Boutique; the fashion , jewellery and gift store, last month. I actually won a £50 voucher in their Pinterest competition, and I chose these items to spend my voucher on 🙂 The Regency three tier cake stand is £29, and the tea cups are £7 each. They also do matching cake tins which I want! I really love this set because the china actually looks like real vintage, and the tea cups each match a tier of the cake stand. It’s so pretty and dainty! Perfect for photographing with my tea party cupcakes. I’m still getting to grips with my new camera by the way!
What do you think? 🙂 If you like them, you can like my new cakey Facebook page 🙂

    Wow amazing! I'm hoping to make cupcakes like this for my sons christening next year, I don't think my efforts will be as pretty as yours though. Great job, lovely post as always xo

    These are perfection! I wish my cake decorative skills were as neat as this! I particularly like the cupcake with 'cake' written across it, as I love labeled things!! xx
