Cupcake Wedding Cake

Cupcake Wedding Cake

I always thought that cupcake wedding cakes were a bit of a cheat.  My children bring delicious cupcakes home from school that they have knocked up in home economics.  I am no expert but I reckon that if they made enough of them and I ask them to balance them on top of each other like [...]
