Wedding Cupcakes!

What’s the draw of cupcakes over the more traditional wedding cake? Um, isn’t it obvious? Everything is cuter in miniature! Cupcakes are so much more fun, and trendier than a cake. They are also more versatile, for instance, you can do them in a variety of different flavors or styles. As far as price goes, you can do cupcakes more inexpensively than you can buy a wedding cake, as long as you don’t go overboard with those pretty little extras such as laser-cut cupcake wrappers and sugar flowers. And of course the adventurous souls out there can even make their own!

Here are some gorgeous wedding cupcake ideas. I love the elegance of this cream and brown combination:

    I have a small cookie business. And I have made fondant hearts, let them dry until they got very hard. They looked very nice on top of a frosted cupcake. But the next day, the fondant had gotten very soft. Is there a way to stop the fondant hearts from becoming soft once they are on top of frosting that is not also fondant?

  2. Yes there is a way to keep them from getting soft. the secret is to make sure they are dry completely then let the icing on the cupcake get a thin crust before putting the hearts on them.

    If I wanted to buy some of your cupcakes, how do I do that and how much are they a apiece?

  5. I really like the idea of cupcakes instead of big wedding cakes! You can add so much more detail. They are so much cuter! My favourite photo on this page was the cream and brown display. It looks like modern elegance and sophistication, if you know what I mean. When I grow up ( I am only thirteen) I would like to open my own cake shop! I love this post 😀
