We seriously ♥ Wedding Cupcakes! They are not only pretty but if you have a talented baker in your family you can save bundles of cash by making these yourselves (and have lots of fun “practising” long before the time). Of course if you are not into “doing-it-yourself”, there are plenty of bakeries and excellent companies who will make wedding cupcakes to your specifications and to fit in with your wedding style and theme.
We’ve hunted around and found a few wedding cake suppliers for you to consider as well as found a few recipe sites and sites with DIY instructions, so have fun experimenting with making your own wedding cupcakes or call the professionals if you aren’t quite brave enough to go the DIY wedding cupcake route!
Making your own Wedding Cupcakes
Here are a few links to sites where you can find ideas, recipes and even templates for making your very own wedding cupcakes:
- DIY Wedding Cupcakes by Betty Crocker (it looks pretty basic – nothing too fancy. What I like on this link is a time-line or planner that advises on when to bake the cakes, when to thaw, when to ice etc. Quite useful if you are serious about wedding cupcake diy).
- Wedding Cupcake ideas by Martha Stewart – trust Martha to be full of good ideas on this topic!
- To find more do a Google search for “wedding cupcakes diy”, and see what you can find.
