Hi, loves! It’s time for another Ask Emmaline question. This one comes from bride-to-be, Angela, who says, “I am planning a cake bar at my wedding with multiple wedding cakes instead of one cake. I plan to have different flavors for each cake but I have no idea how to display them. Any tips?” Great question! Read on to find out how to display multiple wedding cakes at your reception with one simple idea…
Brides: if you’re serving cupcakes at your wedding instead of traditional wedding cake, don’t miss this post! We’ve rounded up three new wedding cupcake ideas to ensure your cupcakes look their very best. We’ve found adorable cupcake stands, wedding cupcake toppers, and colorful wrappers to tie into your decor. Read on for the sweet inspiration…
Wedding Cupcake Ideas
1. Cupcake Stand
When it comes to wedding cupcakes, what’s the first rule of thumb? Presentation! You’ll want to display your cupcakes on a chic stand. We love these cupcake stands using vintage china by High Tea for Alice.
Brides: are you serving cupcakes at your wedding? Bored of the same old display? Want to cross “centerpieces” AND “cake” off your to-do list at the same time? You’ve come to the right place! We’ve heard of the cupcake in a jar – heck, we’ve even seen cupcakes on candlesticks – but a DIY cupcake bouquet is a fresh + fun idea. Instead of displaying cupcakes on the same old tray or tower, display them in a pot instead! These rose-frosting-topped cupcake bouquets are perfect for spring and summer weddings, bridal showers, and parties, and they double as your centerpiece, too. Plus, with Mother’s Day around the corner, you have no excuse but to whip up a batch of cupcakes this weekend and give ‘em to your mom. (And, it’s EASY! Even I could make ‘em, which is saying a lot. I’m no baker.) Besides, do you know anyone who would turn down a bouquet of cupcakes? Me either. So, grab your favorite cupcake mix, delicious frosting, some decorative cupcake wrappers, and a few other easy-to-find supplies and prepare to be inspired! Be sure to check out the links at the bottom of the page for full step-by-step tutorials. Enjoy!
Happy Tuesday! Are you enjoying the new season? I love Fall… my favorite time of year. Maybe it’s the cool breeze, the pumpkin spice coffee that I’ve been thoroughly enjoying, or the changing leaves I can see outside my office window. This scarf-wearing, cider-buying, jeans-and-sweater sporting weather is perfect for weddings and comes with some pretty tasty dessert ideas, too. If you’re looking for fall desserts to add a thematic touch to your wedding, bridal shower, or party (maybe even just kicking back on Saturday night with your honey), you’ve come to the right place. I’m sharing five of my new favorite fall desserts for weddings to try – and each includes a link to the complete do-it-yourself recipe. So, roll up those sleeves, slap on your favorite apron, grab a few of these oven mitts (I’m obsessed) and get ready try these tempting fall desserts for weddings. You can bake ‘em up and gift as favors (in to-go packaging) or share among other favorite treats on a dessert table. And, if you’re a bit of a baking amateur, just fake it ’til you make it: I think that’s the rule for beginner bakers anyway… enjoy!

Good Morning, loves! Today, we’re diving into the whimsical collection of vintage wedding cake stands by our friend Lisa Marie of High Tea for Alice. Lisa Marie creates some of the most incredible vintage wedding cake stands ever – and, she’s a total sweetheart. It’s no surprise, then, that her cake stands fly off the shelves – figuratively speaking, of course, as this china is quite delicate – and brides become regular clients even after the big day. If you’re planning a vintage wedding and want to add the perfect touch, consider one of these vintage wedding cake stands for your big day. Use as a dessert-topped centerpiece for each table, display two or three on your cake table as a cupcake holder, or use as a display piece. After the wedding, gift remaining stands to loved ones as a keepsake or display in your home: it even makes an elegant jewelry stand. Read on to see some of our favorite vintage wedding cake stands we know you’ll love…
We’re kicking off your morning with a sugar rush in a delectable bite-size serving: DIY banana split bites! If you love ice cream – and delightful desserts for guests, these DIY banana split bites are perfect for you! We spotted these treats at The Family Kitchen and we think they’d make a sweet addition to your dessert table or as favors for guests. Worried they’ll melt? Prepare + freeze in small (4 oz.) mason jars (remember when we showed you ice cream in a jar?), wrap in a thank you favor tag, and serve to guests with a spoon. Don’t forget the rainbow sprinkles… we think it’s the best part!
If you’re planning a nature-inspired wedding or bridal shower, you’ll love these green-inspired DIY sprout cupcakes!

These cupcakes look like tiny little (edible) sprouts, which are made from fondant. You can also order the cupcakes with the terra cotta pots for easy “planting”.
