DIY Cupcake Bouquet

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!
