Mom always said, “If you’re going to make something in the kitchen, you ought to make it pretty!” (At least, that’s what our mom said.) So even if your party pastry choice is as simple as a collection of lovely, white-iced cupcakes, there’s no reason to skip the attention to detail. As you see here, simply the addition of a single color to the palette (in this case a bright blooming blue) can add a touch of whimsical elegance that puts your cakes over the top. One bold blue flower to the left, and a sweet and tiny blue-and-white petaled creation to the right. Properly placed on a cupcake tower stand, this display will definitely give your guests pause to “oooh!” and “aaaah!” – right before they bite into these beauties.
