Love This Idea

I brought back a great idea from the wedding !!!!!!
*****************************
Cup Cake Wedding Cake!!!!! (not the idea)
This was my niece's wedding cake.....her very good friend make it for her wedding....there was almost 300 people there and what a great idea this was......

there were several flavors of cup cakes to choose from......
they cut the top layer for the bride and groom cake cutting....

this was a evening shot of the cake......
it was quite unique and beautiful.....

This was the grooms cake.....Al...Po'omai's new hubby loves to ocean fish..he caught all the fish for the wedding reception the day before the wedding....now that was some fresh fish....and the taste was Fabulous.....thus the fish grooms cake.....the pictures do not do it justice...very clever.....
******************************************
NOW HERE IS THE GREAT IDEA !!!!!!!!
you know how $$$ fancy cup cake liners can be......
well here is a great idea for pennies....take a paper doily......

cut the outer lace part of the doily.........

cut the paper lace to fit your cup cake...
I used my fake cute cup cake.....

you can make the cup cake liners for pennies....
you can buy the paper doilies at the dollar store....I used 10 inch doilies

all of the cup cakes liners on the wedding cake were made this way.....
now how cute is this idea.....
this idea will always remind me of her wedding...
Hugs,
Mo :-)
**********************************************
just a little side note....I am off again after work today to Lake Tahoe......we will be at the lake for 2 days with my daughter Julie's family and grandchildren and then on to Gardnerville to stay with friends a few days....thank goodness for Post Options....I have a post for every day this week just to catch up a bit.... so next week I should be back on track...will maybe !!!!
Have a wonderful week and don't forget to check back tomorrow for more blog fun!!!!!

Hi Mo! Oh, what a different and precious wedding cake! I love the cup cake idea! It's wonderful! Like your craft of making your own fancy cupcake papers! I could even do this!
Now the groom's cake is a hoot! Was it chocolate inside!?
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

I love that cupcake idea! I will have to try it one day for one of my tea-parties. How to you get the doilie to stick together at the seams? Also do you just use a regular paper cupcake liner to bake the cupcakes in?


That groom's cake was awesome too! Was it chocolate inside or red velvet!


Hugs,

That is a great idea for the cupcakes. It is amazing that someone made all those cupcakes. What a job that must of been and to prepare all the doilies too. So clever. Very different. I have never seen that idea before.

Have a great trip!

Wow, that is a GREAT idea!!! When I saw all those cupcakes I starting thinking about how expensive it must have been to get all those pretty liners...I had no idea they were doilies! I'm going to steal that idea!!
