The hottest dessert table trend for 2012 is as beautiful as it is simple. We’re talking gradient-iced cupcakes. These stunning sweets draw upon a specific colour family then the icing in mixed in varying shades to create a cascade of colour. The finished products may look pretty basic on their own, but gather a few of these colourful creations together the effect is absolutely breathtaking. To make the most of the gradient shading line differing cupcakes up in rows on your dessert table or group similar shades and create tiers of colour that fade from dark to light.
