Do it yourself Cupcake Wedding Cakes

Author: Theresa Happe

The do-it-your-selfer can save tons of money and have great success using these cupcake ideas for weddings:

  • You can make a beautiful cupcake tower with no cake decorating experience.

  • Save on time and money.

  • Mistakes don't effect a whole cake. If you're unhappy with a particular cupcake, don't use it. Make extra cupcakes for this purpose.

  • If you are bringing cupcakes in to a catering hall, you save on the cake-cutting fee.

  • You can offer a variety of cake flavors to your guests.

  • You can make a small cupcake tower for each table and save the thousands of dollars spent on floral centerpieces.

  • You can offer your guests a second helping, if you like!

The cupcake tower consists of one of more different designs on the cupcakes, displayed on stacked cake boards. Even the simplest designs are enhanced by adding votives, fresh or silk flowers, or tulle alongside the cupcakes on each tier.

In advance, you will need to decide on the design of your cupcake stand and the decorations you will put on the cupcakes.

Assembling the Cupcake Stands:

Even though you can vary the size of your cake boards, the higher the tier, the smaller the cake board. To serve 150 - 200 people, you will need 2 cupcake stands. For each one, create a 4-tier stand with cake boards, starting with 16", then 12", 9" and finally 6". The boards can be square or you can cut out a shape, if you like, by purchasing large pieces of foamcore. Your local craft store will have most of the things you need. Cover each board with non-stick foil, which comes in different colors. The edge of each cake board can be trimmed with ribbon to match the color scheme. Use either craft glue or hat pins to secure it.

In between the boards, there are a number of things you can do to enhance the display. You can purchase clear vases (wide enough and sturdy enough to support the tiers above) and fill the vases with flower petals, glass marbles, seashells,etc. Very inexpensively, you can also use flower pots in between the cake boards. Just spray paint them and tie a pretty ribbon around them. Check the sturdiness of your cupcake stand before the big day to prevent mishaps.

You can offer 2 flavors of cake to your guests by placing each flavor on its own stand. Let your guests know with a hand-written sign you place on the table in front of each one. You don't have to fit all the cupcakes on the stands. Placing them on the cake table around the cupcake stands enhances the display.

Decorating the Cupcake Stands:

Decorations should be placed towards the center of each cake board so guests can easily retrieve a cupcake without disturbing the arrangement. Extend the decorations out on to the cake table and intermingle them with the cupcakes.

Cupcake Ideas:

If you know how to decorate cakes, you can make royal icing flowers. They will keep in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks. These decorations can also be purchased. Or try adding molded chocolate decoration in hearts, seashells, or flowers. Craft stores carry chocolate in all different colors.

You can easily make the cupcakes more elaborate by adding silver non-pariels, pearl beads, ribbon, small plastic wedding bells, or other wedding decorations sold for making favors.

Cupcake Decorating Ideas:

Consider incorporating your wedding colors and theme into the cupcake decorations and the cake stand.Add a special touch to the cupcakes by icing them with a pastry bag fitted with a cake decorating tip. Once the icing hardens, the decorations won't stick. If you work with someone else, have your helper add the decorations after each cupcake is iced. If you are working alone, you will need to keep icing handy to add fresh icing on top of the cupcake before adding the decorations.

Transporting the Cupcakes:

Any sturdy boxes will work fine for transporting the cupcakes. Separate them with balls of tissue paper to prevent them from falling over and bumping into one another.

Use your imagination to create unique cupcake ideas that will be the hit of the wedding!
