Those who have lately been in a number of weddings in Singapore have probably noticed that cupcakes are now one of the trendiest features of today’s weddings. And there’s little wonder why as these delicious goodies are economical, practical, and easy to customize. You can even use them for various purposes: as dessert, wedding favor, and even as décor. So for those interested, here are six wedding cupcake ideas you can use on your wedding.
People who think cupcakes are too simple for an event as grand as a wedding clearly haven’t seen a seven-tiered pyramidal cupcakes with splendid color motif and intricate designs. Arranged well, wedding cupcakes may even look more magnificent than wedding cakes as they can have more color variety and – because they’re arranged in tall tiers – will tower over your banquet tables and serve as a great centerpiece.
If you’re a chic, young bride who likes to put your own spin on things, then naturally your cupcakes should also reflect that unique style and personality of yours. Whether you like them simple with bold colors and just some choice details, finely decorated with couture detailing and varying shades, or anything in between – you can decorate your cupcakes any which way that suits you.
You can also introduce some humor and get more cheer at your wedding reception through your wedding cupcakes. There are a number of bakeshops in Singapore, such as My Fat Lady Cakes and Cupcakes, that takes special orders from clients who have particular ideas for their cupcakes. Some of the popular designs for funny cupcakes are the Muppets, Pac-Man, and Angry Birds.
It’s your wedding so you’ll probably want to put your stamp on it. You can easily do that using your wedding cupcake as they could serve as décor as well as your wedding favor. The most common way to do this is to imprint your cupcakes with your monogram or a drawing or emblem of your favorite item.
Cupcakes can also be customized to reflect your theme. For a beach wedding, for example, you can have coffee-colored cupcakes (to simulate sand) with teal fondant toppings in the shape of seashells. Another idea is cupcakes topped with green icing and candy flowers – great for a garden wedding. Simply experiment with the color and decoration of your cupcakes to make it the perfect match for your themed wedding.
