HUNTED: { Wedding Cake – Clever Cupcake Ideas }

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

I’ve already found you a whole host of extraordinary cakes, clearly made by masterly baking hands. Now comes the turn of the humble cupcake.

Proving that great things come in small packages, enjoy the visual feast of cupcakery below.

Cupcake Towers

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

Wedding Cake Cupcakes 2012 2013

Cupcakes could be used as an alternative to the traditional wedding cake. If you still want to have the stature of a large cake, consider commissioning a cupcake tower like this one above via Wonderland Bakery. You can get creative with colours, flavours (anything from coffee to carrot to cookie) and assembly, then relish tucking in post dinner as they taste like a little dream. Just the one issue – which cake to cut?!

Cupcake Favour Ideas

Cupcakes can be iced to match your day in almost any conceivable form. If sunflowers are your dominant flower, for example, you could consider sunflower iced cupcakes.

Wedding Cupcakes White Iced Winter

Your theme may be as simple as the season you’re getting married. If yours is a Winter wedding, for example, you could consider cupcakes with snowflake decorations on top like this delicious looking example [ image : here ].

If your “theme” is as simple as small associations with a passion of yours, cupcakes are a good medium to express on. If you’re both music lovers, why not create an iced stave on your cakes like in this image .

  1. Thank you! Usually couples choose a small cutting cake to go on top of the tower to cut, oherwise they pose with the knife in the stand but dont cut the cupcakes!

  2. Thanks Lucie! I wondered if couples just used a very small knife, but having a cake on top makes a LOT more sense!
