This woodland themed cupcake design contains lots of lovely earthy colours in line with current trends.  It's a big feeder and would make the perfect centrepiece for any large event.
This particular design was made for a friend's wedding, but equally it would fit a host of other celebrations too and just imagine all the things you could add...birds, butterflies, chocolates, edible leaves. The possibilities are endless.
In this tutorial you'll pick up some new skills and techniques, which include stacking and arranging a cupcake tower, making tasty milk chocolate buttercream, creating a sugarpaste wood effect, airbrush work and lots more.

We'd love to see your take on the Woodland Cupcake Tower - so make sure you share your photos with us on our Facebook page.
