Pink Plush Bridal Shower Cupcake

For the bride who is a princess that loves pink, serve up the ultimate dessert to make her bridal shower everything she dreamed it would be.


Being a girly-girl, I love these cupcakes! They are so sassy and plush that they could serve as the signature centerpiece of the food table arranged on a silver three-tier tray.

Plush Pink Cupcake How-to:

Step 1: Go shopping with your best girlfriends and find a fabulous pink faux fur fabric for these cupcake wraps!

Step 2: Make a pattern for the cupcake wrap by wrapping white paper (or cardstock) around the cupcake and trimming it to fit.

Step 3: Because this wrap is made from material, you'll need to back it with cardstock to give it structure. Place the cupcake wrap pattern on white cardstock, trace it, and cut it out.

Step 4: Place the cupcake wrap pattern on your pink material and trace it about 1/2-inch out from the perimeter so you have excess fabric to fold over the cardstock for a finished edge. Cut out the fabric.

Step 5: Smear a light coat of fabric glue on the cardstock and apply the pink fabric on top.

Step 6: Turn it over and apply glue on the backside of the excess fabric around the perimeter and then fold the fabric over the edges on to the cardstock. Allow glue to dry completely.

Step 7: Purchase small rhinestone belt buckles often available in the jewelry section of craft stores and ribbon for your cupcake wrap's "belt." (When working with ribbon on cakes, I like to back the ribbon with mailing tape, which not only gives it structure it makes the ribbon somewhat waterproof.)

Step 8: Cut a length of ribbon to fit around your cupcake. Slide the belt buckle on to the ribbon. Use glue to attach the ribbon on to the top rim of the cupcake wrap. Allow to dry completely.

Step 9: Bake a batch of chocolate cupcakes in baking cups and ice them with pink frosting (white frosting tinted pink with a few drops of red food coloring).

Step 10: Wrap the cupcake with fabric wrap and use tape to keep it temporarily closed.

Step 11: Remove the cupcake and use glue (I prefer hot glue) at the back seam to keep it closed (tape will probably not hold the fabric). Allow the glue to dry.

Step 12: Place the cupcake back in its rightful place, enveloped in its sparkly plush pink wrapper.
