Don’t you love this gluten-free bridal shower cake? I used simple recipes for the cake and frosting. And, since I used cupcakes, it was so much easier to put together than a regular cake.
My little sister, Marcia, got married in September. On the beach. The wedding was gorgeous! Breathtaking, really.
Nate in his wedding gear on the beach with a family friend! He wasn’t in the mood for a pic.
To celebrate before her big day, I flew home with Nate to Ohio. My other sis, Lorie, and I threw her a bridal shower. We called in our favorite recruits, my Mom and my Aunt Sonnie, to help out. Of course, I insisted on making the cake.
While I was busy making some of the other food, my Aunt Sonnie stood in the kitchen and puzzled out the dress. She was a saint. It took about 30 minutes to get the cupcakes just right. We were both stunned because it looks so simple. In the end, we decided the trick was to ‘over ice’ the cupcakes so you can’t see any little spaces between them.

I found my inspiration on Pinterest. Or I guess you could say I did my best to recreate what I found on Pinterest.
If you attempt to make this cake with regular sized cupcakes, you will have a mammoth-sized dress. I used 63 mini-cupcakes and they fit perfectly on a half-sheet cake board.
Have fun with this cake!
