Wedding Cupcake Tower
There are wedding professionals that think cupcakes are too informal for a wedding... but I think that cupcakes have come SO far from the grocery store shelves that the idea of a fun and individual dessert is just perfect for some weddings! Neatly piped buttercream, brown liners and a fondant accent add style and presentation. This bride wanted pretty (but not too cutesy) bows on the top of each cupcake. Her colors were brown, light pink and ivory... so we alternated the buttercream and bow colors to give a variety to both the flavor and look of the towers.
Most caterers have their own cupcake tower and this one was provided by Puff 'n Stuff Catering (this wedding served 200+, and they have an additional tower if needed). The key to taking an ordinary cupcake tower and not having it look plain is filling it up! We placed each cupcake in the same direction (see bows) and as closely together as possible... so that the stand disappears and all you see is cake!
