Masquerade Cupcake Tower

Masquerade Themed 40th Party
This order was placed as a surprise for the clients wife,
obviously she knew about the party
but he wanted to order her some cakes to tie in with the theme.
He already mentioned he liked the look of the
coconut covered cupcakes and more or less left the design up to me,
so this is what was designed.
The top cutting cake is a 6" Vanilla Sponge
with Rosewater Buttercream,
covered in white fondant.
The large Mask Topper is Sugar,
handcut and crafted, airbrushed and painted in Blue & silver
with a sugar flower and finished off with feathers with embellishments.
The cupcakes are a variety of
Vanilla sponge covered with coconut and topped with
a double bloom.
Chocolate cupcakes and Zesty Lemon cupcakes
are fondant covered with a single sugar mask
individually airbrushed then hand painted.
I got a message from the client this morning saying that the cakes were a great success!
I am so pleased, as these were a joy to make,
yes, they took me absolutely ages
but the result was well worth it!
