The Best Cupcake Recipe

Sarah and Mike chose chocolate with strawberry, vanilla and chocolate frosting.

"I just wanted to let you know the cupcakes were gorgeous and a big hit! Everyone's raving about them!(and I LOVED the faded pink ombre cake top, it was amazing!!)

The Wedding Day

Sarah & Mikes beach theme wedding took place on the lawn across from her grandmothers home. The lawn just happens to be situated right on Long Island Sound. It was spectacular!

Here is a close up of the cupcake design and the cupcake tiered wedding cake. It was very simple, just a piping of buttercream using a large star tip and then a dash of Wilton silver and gold pearlized sugar and pink sugar pearls.

Creative Idea For A Cupcake Tiered Wedding Cake

Cupcakes are an easy alternative. Take any wedding recipe and use it to make your minis. Try the white one made with  butter and vanilla on this website. It's delicious and perfect to use for this purpose.

The chocolate buttermilk or the carrot are also great for baking in small tins.
Use the table for the bottom tier, a cake stand for the second tier and pillars with a 6 inch cake rising above. The sweet little mini desserts are decorated in buttercream and fresh flowers.

The Teal blue ribbon around the plates is a nice touch and is something that you can incorporate into your wedding cupcake tower design to add more color.
