Listen...these next two posts all have images from martha stewarts wedding blog. Why? As hyped up and sometimes too Emily Post traditional for my taste...the woman(at this point her staff) are still trend setters on how to have a beautiful creative wedding. Cupcakes for example are beginning to be the norm at most weddings. They are definitely a crowd pleaser and cost effective way to have dessert without breaking the budget on a full cake. If you are doing cupcakes make them stand out like a cake does throughout the event. Be inspired and original. Go for a modern look or put flags with your monogram or wedding date on them. Use fondant to create a symbol or shape to perch on top of the cupcake. Get funky.
