Wedding Cupcakes

A few days ago a good friend called me to ask if I would make her wedding cake...and of course I said yes. She is getting married on the courthouse steps in a few days and will have her ceremony on September 7th.  THEN they are leaving for Australia to work for the next two years.  Exciting!  But back to the cake....we are working on the design because time is short.  May have to throw in some cupcakes on the side even though she didn't ask for them.

On another note...another friend is getting married next summer and I will be doing a cake and cupcakes for that event!  Weddings in the cupcake universe....gotta hurry and finish my sugar flower classes on Craftsy!

Cupcake Paper Plates

Pay attention cupcake fans...I found these paper plates at Target.  I was looking for dinner-sized cupcake plates but the salad size will do just fine.  Only $2.25 for 8 and they have cupcake napkins to go with them.  Love the peace signs and hearts!

Cupcake Stand

I went to Michael's this week in search of some way to use my 40% off coupon.  I am always on the lookout for a cupcake stand...this one is nothing fancy but it can be dressed up in a thousand ways or just leave it as is!

Cupcake Wine Charms and More!

Pier 1 strikes again in the cupcake department.  Went to get a new table runner and....I didn't.  But here is what I did find.  Cupcake wine charms and Woodlands cupcake liners and picks in a variety of animals.  Nice!
