Wedding Cupcakes

 

Cupcakes. Yum! Wedding Cupcakes. Yum and adorable! Unless you’ve been living under a rock, then you are aware that cupcakes became hot a few years back, and seem to be here to stay. Cupcake bakeries – cupcakeries – have sprung up coast to coast and around the world. And many are interested in pushing the cupcake envelope, creating ever more beautiful and decadent miniature cake creations, to delight fans everywhere. With the rising popularity of cupcakes, we also have seen more and more couples opting to serve cupcakes, rather than wedding cake, at their big event? Why? Couples cite different reasons. Some just really, really love the cuteness and convenience of cupcakes. Others love all of the different varieties of cupcakes out there, and appreciate that they can serve lots of variety to their guests. Still others cite cost: although the gap is closing, serving cupcakes can cost less than serving a mammoth, show-stopping cake (especially if the crafty bride DIYs the little treats.) It comes down to personal preference. For some brides, it just isn’t a wedding without the big cake. For others, cupcakes may be just the special touch they’re looking for.

Let Them Eat Cake: Sunday Round-Up for September 30, 2012

Hand Painted Pansy Wedding Cake

Hello, hello!  How are you this very fine Sunday?  I’m swell, and happy that it’s the weekend.

How is the weather in your neck of the woods?  Cool and crisp?  Well…lucky YOU.  ‘Cause we are totally sweltering here in the southeast.  It happens this way every year, but it’s always so tiring…watching everyone else’s mercury plummet while ours holds steady.  But in just a few weeks, it will be the dry season…or what we call in Florida…bliss.

Isn’t this just the BEST time for weddings, though?  Rich foods, rich colors, and that excitement that just Read More

Mini Cheesecake Wedding Cupcakes

Aren’t these darling?

You know, you think you’ve seen one cupcake, and you’ve seen them all.  Sher, the frosting colors change.  But the basic set up doesn’t.  You have cake, you have frosting, voila.  Here’s your cupcake.

But how awesomely awesome is this?  Cheesecake…instead of cupcakes.  Cheesecake as cupcakes.  And the precious little jam hearts baked right in make these uber perfect for any wedding – formal, casual, or anything in between.

Once again, it takes Read More

Wedding Cake Alternatives: Non-Traditional Wedding Cake Options

hydrangea cupcakes

I haven’t bumped into many people who say they don’t like cake.  But apparently, they are out there.  And in the past, People Who Don’t Like Cake would grin and bear their secret loathing (or their apathy…but that doesn’t sound very dramatic) when it came to their wedding.  After all, you MUST have a ginormous wedding cake at your wedding, yes?  A towering confection, an architectural wonder, made with more butter and eggs and sugar than you’ve eaten EVER?

Well, if you are among the People Who Don’t Like Cake, have I got news for you.  Time to come out of the cake closet and rejoice in your new found freedom, because you don’t have to serve cake at your wedding. Well, not the big giant white white white kind, anyway.  You can – gasp! – serve what you’d like.

In the past ten years or so, couples have begun to question Read More

LOVE Wedding Cupcake

How about some late love on this lovely Thursday?

Sure, the day has kicked my fanny, and I’m just posting.  So I thought I’d extend myself a little chocolate grace.  So here is a cupcake. For you.  And for me.

Isn’t this lovely?  And get a load of the ab fab flav – it’s a chocolate chili cupcake with Mexican hot chocolate buttercream.  ¡Ay, caramba!

And as if that weren’t enough, the fondant placket on top shows Read More

Let Them Eat Cake: Sunday Round-Up for August 19, 2012

Diy Dreamy Vintage English Wedding Cake

Greetings and salutations!

I have a question for you:  why, oh why, does it take going back to school for kiddoes to make life suddenly make sense and seem orderly again?  I think that’s hitting the nail on the head.  It’s a sense of order.  A sense of order that my household has been sorely lacking since the Great Homeschool Experiment of ’11.

Homeschooling parents?  God bless ’em.  We found out that a) this career girl may not be cut out for that kinda thing; b) my daughter may not be, either.  So maybe we’ll revisit in a few years.  Or maybe not.  You don’t know until you try it, and for now, we’re gonna throw the towel in.

What does this have to do with weddings?  Oh, Read More

These cupcakes are a step above your ordinary wedding cupcakes. The beautifully crafted roses give a soft, romantic feel to the cupcakes. Can you imagine a tower of these gorgeous cupcakes at Read More

Let Them Eat Cake: Sunday Round-Up for April 15, 2012

Bride and Groom Cupcakes

Happy Tax Day, Y’all!

Well…technically, it’s not, since it’s, you know, a Sunday.  And the government DOES still take weekends off.  Still, I see that date on the calendar and that’s what I think of.  Oh no!  Wait!  Whew.  Okay.  I already did that.

So, I’m sure we’d all rather talk about April showers, May flowers, etc, etc.

Really, I am so crazy excited Read More
