13 Delicious Designs for Wedding Cupcakes

24th May 2016

I went on a mission to find decorative cupcake designs fit for fulfilling their wedding dessert fate.

13 Delicious Designs for Wedding Cupcakes-2Cupcakes are undoubtedly one of life’s greatest gifts. Holding a whole cake in the palm of your hand, and nobody dares to try to take a slice, allowing you to devour the entire little devil yourself… it’s basically heaven on earth. I know you know this is no exaggeration. 

However, I have a little confession to make. See, I’ve never been particularly fond of the whole cupcakes at weddings thing. In honesty, I’ve always seen these particular little baked delicacies as belonging more in kids’ parties, baby showers and the like, not weddings. I don’t know why I hold this deep-seated baked-goods bigotry, perpetuating a sad segregation of sweets.

I’ve known it’s wrong for some time now, so I decided it was time to redeem myself by setting out to prove myself wrong. I wanted to find some decorative desserts that would break down my barriers, and bring me forth into a new world of iced delights, even I – a wedding cake snob – deems fit for nuptials.

I’m sure you’ll agree, these 13 wedding cupcakes below make my mission complete.
