When my friend, and super-suitie Jen Isham called to book her best friend's strawberry themed bridal I knew I was in for a fun project! We made strawberry blonde cupcakes, of course, which are vanilla cupcakes with strawberry buttercream (which has a naturally pink color). The cupcakes were accented with graphic strawberries made of fondant and royal icing. We made a little 6"tier to match the cupcakes of pink fondant with a sweet white eyelet reminiscent border. When she said the invitations read "How Sweet It Is" I knew this border was a definite. Jen, who was a contestant on The Next Food Network Star, and now has her own blog created an entirely strawberry themed menu.
