Cupcake ideas

Cupcakes are becoming a big thing this year at weddings.
The cupcake has become the "new' wedding cake.

There are many different things you can do with cupcakes:

At your bridal shower, place these bite-size cupcake pops
on lollipop sticks for a centerpiece that’s a decoration
and a dessert.
Novice bakers take note—the petite treats are
surprisingly easy to make.
Visit bakerella.com for recipes and tips.

While intricately designed cakes to display your
man’s favorite hobby are a great way to salute him
on your wedding day, these pool-inspired cupcakes
are adorable and much more economical than
a large groom’s cake.
Each treat is covered with rolled fondant and racked in a
chocolate fondant triangle.
A sugar-paste chalk and scorecard complete the set.

A tasty bouquet encourages guests to do more than stop
and smell the roses. Frosted with strawberry icing
and placed in a planting pot, the chocolate cupcakes in this
edible centerpiece are ripe for the picking.

everything you need to spruce up your mini confections.
