Well, we're at a stump right now. I watned a cake, but I think we are going with cupcakes! I love...
Okay, so my man and I are planning on building our own cupcake stand that'll look much like the one in picture #1.
My question is, if we have an elaborate cupcake stand like this, would it be ok if our cupcakes were just plain? Like, chocolate cupcakes with white icing? OR chocolate cupcakes with white icing as well as chocolate cupcakes with light pink icing (our colors are black, ivory, and light pink)? I prefer the look of cupcakes with swirled icing like the pink and purple cupcakes pictured in #2.
We also have damask baking cups pictured in #3 (in black).
Here are my questions:
1. Would having a cupcake stand like the one pictured above make it "ok" to have plain cupcakes?
2. If yes, should we do just white icing cupcakes or white AND pink icing cupcakes so we can incorporate the color pink into the cake display?
3. If we have a damask cupcake stand, would damask cupcake liners be overkill?
4. If yes, do you have any suggestions on what type of print to use in our cupcake stand aside from damask? We're having a vintage themed wedding so anything with a vintage or antique look will work awesome!
I also just came across the photo here:
and I kind of like the look of the edible pearls on the cupcakes. Would something like that be nice on pink icinged (my new word) cupcakes? And then pink pearls on the white icinged cupcakes? Or does it look tacky?
