Perfect Bridal Shower Cake

My dear, dear friend Sharon
made this lovely Wedding Dress Cake
for my daughter's neighborhood bridal shower.

It was the hit of the evening.  
We had seen several of these on Pinterest and my friend
Cricket posted it on Facebook saying that it made her
think of me.  Sharon volunteered to make it.

It was so beautiful that no one wanted to destroy
it.  Sharon made the cupcakes following my
(which was my very first blog post!)
but substituted almond yogurt and almond flavoring.

She had extra cupcakes that she brought on
a platter that people did eat.  Sharon even tried
to encourage people to eat the cake by removing
one of the cupcakes to the side and someone
came and replaced it - no one wanted to
be responsible for destroying perfection!

I can see this dress cake being used for so many parties.
It could be for baptisms, in pink for a little girl's birthday
party, for a princess party, etc.

Thanks Sharon.
(I don't know who came up with this original
idea, but I thank them too.)

I will be posting this with


Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.


  1. What an adorable idea! I can see why no one wanted to take one of the cupcakes. Saving this idea for a future party! Thanks, Jacqueline. ~ Sarah

  2. Jackie, this cake is so gorgeous, I can see why no one wanted to touch it! You need to start a catering firm, your ideas are so wonderful and backed up by the cooking/baking chops. And lots of friends to help out! lol Congrats to your daughter. She is going to be a beautiful bride. Can't wait to see photos. xo

  3. Beautiful! We need all the imagination we can find these days, and this is one to save for sure.

  4. I never pass up a great cupcake, but it would have been hard to "hurt" that dress....adorable idea!

  5. Oh Jacqueline - it's so lovely. What a nice friend you have. I'll be remembering this the next time I'm asked to do a shower cake. Congratulations on your daughter's upcoming wedding.

  6. This is such a gorgeous cupcake cake! It's elegant, unique and perfect. Love it!

  7. What a beautiful cupcake wedding dress!

  8. That is the most beautiful idea I've seen - if ideas can be beautiful and seen. I figure you know what I mean, right? Just gorgeous. I bet they would have tasted good, too, if anyone had tried them.

  9. so adorable and fun!! Have not seen this before....great idea.

  10. Beautiful creation Jackie. I can see why no one wanted to ruin such a pretty cake. It's a first for me. I wonder how people come up with these gorgeous creations.

  11. Oh my, I live it! I wouldn't have wanted to eat it either.

  12. This is the cutest thing I have ever seen. Have a good weekend and hope you are feeling better!

  13. What a beautiful cake! I love the swirls of frosting. I have pearl earrings just like the decorations at the top of the dress!

  14. I imagine it would be difficult to destroy such a work of art!!! SO pretty!!! I'm helping with a neighbor's bridal shower for this July, and we've been kicking this idea around. We want the guests to EAT it, though!!!! :-)

  15. Amazing and super unique cake!!

  16. This is just the cutest idea and the bonus, it's lemon. Cute story that someone replaced the cupcake.

  17. I've seen these on Pinterst and thought they were so impressive! I can see why no one wanted to ruin it, but I probably would have just grabbed one (or two)!

  18. My goodness this is stunning! How talented! I have seen children's cakes done this way, but a bridal cake is so elegant!

  19. Hi,

    This is absolutely one and perfect cake.

    When I saw this, I remember when my daughter celebrated her 18th bday, I made a flower out of cupcakes and that was 3 years ago.

    It just happened that I make that so and never think that someone did a great job beyond :-)


    Hope you're having a wonderful time.

  20. What a beautiful would be hard to dismantle it, but I think I would be up to eating a cupcake or two!
    Have a wonderful week...

  21. SWOON! Jacqueline, I missed this post when we were out of town! What a beautiful cake, I can see why no one wanted to dismantle it! I'm wishing I had an occasion to make it!

  22. This is the pretties cupcake dress I've seen. Are the embellishments candy or just for decoration? Thanks!
