Shabby Chic Cupcake Tower

In a season where I make a lot of black fondant, I was happy to make something a little different for a high school graduation party.  The graduate had a party with a shabby chic theme, so these cupcakes were sweet, girly and pink to match.  

The cupcakes were as follows: cookies & cream (with pink jewels), snickerdoodle (with fondant pearls), red velvet (with embossed fondant hearts), chocolate chocolate chip (with pink fondant double flowers), and vanilla (with flowers and silver heart sprinkles).  

The mini cake that sat on top of the tower was vanilla cake with strawberry filling.  I covered the cake with pink fondant and added a thin bow and a ribbon rose at the bottom (with more fondant pearls).  Then I piped on flower and leaf shapes and brushed them to resemble embroidery.  It was a fun technique and it made a really pretty centerpiece to the tower and to the party.
