Not a fan of the traditional wedding cake? Read on…

The days of plain white frosted, three tiered wedding cakes are no more. As Mia Roets from Cupcakes Ever After notes, “All rules about wedding cakes seem to have gone out through the window. Who said a wedding cake needs to be demure and white?”

Wedding cupcakes are fabulously versatile as they allow you to incorporate different flavours with frosting colours and can be presented in a variety ways.

Mia also mentions that vintage inspired cupcakes are a big trend right now. Think lace, bunting flags, antique cups and saucers and vintage glam photo frames. This trend is all about the detail, whether it is quirky or romantic and cupcakes are a great way to articulate your theme. They can be decorated with soft pastel frosting, sugared pearls and whimsical flags. Or a piece of lace or ribbon wrapped around each treat. You could even get away with presenting your cupcakes in teacups for that really whimsical look.

Remember, your wedding needs to reflect you as a couple. If you hate fruitcake, then don’t go there! Your guests will appreciate the details that make you YOU, and it will make for memories worth treasuring.
