Last week, I talked about cherry blossoms as sure sign of the arrival of Spring. Another sign of the spring season is the start of the wedding season! For someone like me, who loves to bake and cook, this is an exciting time of year!
Admittedly, weddings are happening all year round (our December wedding was the best example) but in the Northern hemisphere couples definitely, prefer the warmer months of Spring and Summer.
The cupcake trend for weddings is still going strong. Many couples have opted for cupcakes rather than the traditional wedding cake for a various number of reasons. Cupcakes tend to be cheaper, they can be made in a variety of flavors, they’re less wasteful and they’re just more fun to eat, aren’t they? The options to customize them to your theme, color and flavor preferences are endless, thus, making them a more fun and delicious choice for a wedding! They can also be decorated with the very obvious wedding theme.
For that I created these bride & groom cupcake toppers!
The bride is “wearing” a simple and elegant white dress with a structured pearl border. A large red flower is the main focal point.
The groom is “wearing” a traditional black & white tuxedo with a matching red flower boutonniere.
These bridal cupcake toppers are now also available in my Etsy store with options to customize skin or flower colors.

Need need cupcake frosting recipe. That we'll stay firm and keep the shape of the flowers
Hi Gerty, do you have issues with the frosting not holding up in this warm summer weather?
When I was doing cupcakes for outdoor summer weddings, I substituted half of the butter with shortening in my buttercream. Shortening doesn't melt as fast as butter, but by subbing only half the butter flavor is still there.
I love using meringue buttercream (Italian or Swiss) because I prefer the flavor over American Buttercream. I don't have the recipe on my site, but have a look here http://sweetapolita.com/2011/04/swiss-meringue-buttercream-demystified/
Where can I buy the bride & groom cupcake toppers. They are fantastic
where can I get these cake toppers?
Hey Rona, unfortunately I'm not running my Etsy store at the moment, but maybe if you search a little on etsy.com you can find someone else offering similar cupcake toppers.
