{nuptial nook- bridal shower cake}

Let's do a little math:

12 cupcakes
+ one 8" round cake
...put them together and what have you got?...

= one super cute bridal shower cake!

I made this cake for my mom this Mother's Day. Her favorite color is blue. I think it would work perfectly for a bridal shower because it's very girly and also goes well with a wedding theme. Plus... it is SO easy- it only takes one cake mix!

1. Whip up 1 cake mix of your choice.
2. Use half the batter for 12 cupcakes, and the other half for an 8" round.
3. Bake according to directions and then cool completely in refrigerator.
4. Frost with icing of your choice
...what are the brides wedding colors? frosting to match? just a thought...
5. Keep frosted cake and cupcakes separated and refrigerated until just before guests arrive.
6. Tier cupcakes on top of 8" round as follows:


6. Decorate with accessories of your choice
(I used yellow beads and artificial flowers. SO easy!)
7. Voila! Enjoy your super cute, super yummy cake!

I don't think I've ever seen anyone put both cupcakes AND a cake together. Usually it's, well, one or the other. Love the creativity that you just emulate :)
