Let them eat Cupcakes

Earlier this summer I made a lot of cupcakes. A lot. It was all done as a trial for what I did last week. Last week, with a lot of help, I made the cupcakes for C's wedding. (The cupcakes were for eating... the fake cake was for decoration.)
In the end we decided to go for Chocolate with Mocha Meringue Buttercream (topped with a chocolate covered coffee bean), Lemon with Lemon Cream Cheese icing, and Vanilla Buttercream cupcakes. Yum!
And they must have been a hit since they all got eaten! It was lots of fun to do actually. I had a ton of help! I even made a new baking friend (a friend of the bride's who came to help). We've since emailed recipes back and forth. She did a fabulous job decorating them!
Since they say that a picture is worth a million words, I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.

This is unfortunately where fondant flowers go to die. They were made early, but not many survived the trip.
And here's the final result:
