Customized Treats for your Event

Cupping Cakes recently took part in a Wedding photo shoot, and were happily given a little carte blanche on flavors and materials. The theme was “soft pink and gold – with romance,” the table was set with a great range of pinks, gold accents and soft romantic materials and textures.

First, we chose a white and pink paper baking cup with a scalloped edge, giving it a soft romantic feel. Then, we baked a simple vanilla cake, which gives of a nice soft gold tone, then topped them with a cherry buttercream, alternating with a simple white vanilla buttercream. We then topped these with a pink pearl to tie the two looks together, as well as gold heart edible heart accents from Wilton.

Event Recap: Beach Wedding

We had the very great pleasure and honor to be part of a wedding this past weekend. Cupping Cakes supplied cupcakes, the cutting cake and two different types of cookie favors. The wedding was on the beach, and we continued the beautiful blues of the ocean and beach themes throughout the entire event. We worked directly with the Bride to bring her the best items to work with her theme and location, not only with the flavors of the cupcakes, but with the cake design, cupcake wrappers and cookie favors.

Cupcakes:

BLUE VELVET: Blue velvet cake (similar to red velvet) with vanilla cream cheese buttercream, topped with a glittery blue flower.

VANILLA: Vanilla cake, with blue tinted vanilla italian meringue buttercream topped with blue glitter.

COCONUT LIME: Coconut cake (with a healthy serving of coconut flakes) with creamy coconut lime buttercream, topped with toasted coconut and two candy flip flops.

Cupcakes at Weddings of All Kinds

I recently attended a “Equal Plan” Wedding Show, which gave opportunities to couples of ALL KINDS to meet vendors that support love of any kind. This choice to support any event was a no-brainer for me, but it got me thinking about how some people still view cupcakes at weddings as “unconventional.” So I took some time, gathered some great ideas and information about cupcakes and wedding traditions.

What this resulted in, was a really great info-graphic that is a fantastic ice breaker for brides, grooms, wedding planners and cupcake enthusiasts. I introduce to you…the cupcake wedding information powerhouse!
