Whether you’re planning a bridal shower, and engagement party, or a buck & doe (otherwise known as Jack & Jill), this engagement ring cake is a great way to celebrate the special events in your life. It’s very simple to make (seriously, you can use box mix!) and you can adjust the recipe and size of the ring based on how many guests you’ll have in attendance. Don’t want to get stuck with leftovers? Cupcakes are much easier to send home with guests after the event and you’ll be able to keep some space in your fridge!
This engagement ring cake is a great center piece for your dessert table. It’s elegant and beautiful, but won’t break the bank! With all the costs associated with being in a wedding, and hosting a bridal shower having a cake that is budget friendly but still impresses is a great way so save some money. Not to mention, your guests will love the creativity and time spent on this engagement ring cake! You can customize this bridal shower cake in so many different ways. Changing the colors to match the colours of the wedding or bridal shower theme is very simple, and it doesn’t take a lot of extra effort or time!
To make this ring sparkle I picked up some coloured sugar to sprinkle on the cupcakes. Check your local bulk food store, they usually carry coloured sugar in a variety of colouts. I used clear for the “diamond” and blue and grey for the ring part. This gives the cupcakes a beautiful elegant look without adding too much or taking up too much time.
As you can see, we set the table up with some bright and beautiful sunflowers and ribbon which was held down by decorative table cloth weights. To keep with the them of the wedding consider using flowers that will be used in the wedding to jazz up your display table as well. It is a great way to add some personality and interest to your bridal shower or engagement party!
