Planning on giving your guests cupcake wedding favors or having a cupcake display at your wedding? Cupcakes make great alternatives to traditional wedding cakes, are ideal as edible DIY wedding favors, and make great centerpiece displays for tables – but there’s no guarantee they will last by the end of the reception! Everyone loves cupcakes – just the right size to hold, easy to eat and the perfect individual treat size.
Not sure what type of cupcakes to have at your wedding or event? You could have several flavor options – display them in cupcake boxes at a table for your guests to take on the way home, or you could decorate a cupcake tower with one flavor on each row. Standard cupcake flavors such as vanilla and chocolate always do well and are a safe bet, but you could also have cupcakes made that are miniature versions of your wedding cake.
If you are planning on making the cupcakes yourself – and they are quite easy to do – don’t fret! Depending on the quantity of the cupcakes you are baking, you may need to enlist the help of a friends, bridesmaids or relatives to help with the assembly and design. Designing your cupcakes does not have to be elaborate or intricate. Simply pipe on frosting from bags (this makes it easy) and use pretty sugar crystals, candy beads, sprinkles or pre-made candies to top them off. You can also add toppers (they are just like picks) that you can easily insert after you have frosted the cupcakes for an easy decorating tip. If you are giving them away individually, you’ll want to pack them after your finish decorating them. Allow yourself at least several days before the wedding to bake and decorate them – you won’t have time the night before your wedding.
There are several options to package your cupcakes – you could place them in individual cupcake boxes which will display them beautifully and ensure safe passage to and from your reception. If you are planning on having a cupcake display we recommend using pretty, decorative cupcake wraps to place on the bottom of each cupcake. You can then serve them individually during dessert, place them on a cupcake tower display or have them set up at a dessert table. If you would like a truly unique display consider our Bell Jar Glass cupcake display stands or our Wire Crown Cupcake holders.
