With only 11 days remaining until my walk down the aisle, few things are on my mind outside of wedding planning. So, it is with this spirit that I present to you a darling new idea – cupcake favors.
Cupcake wedding cakes are all the rage these days. And, while they are certainly not appropriate for every wedding, many modern brides-to-be are finding cupcake cakes as an attractive alternative to traditional wedding cakery.
Cupcakes are not only adorable to look at, but they offer price points that are perfect for any budget. From plain-Jane chocolate and vanilla cupcakes with traditional buttercream icing to more exotic mousse- or jam-filled cupcakes with rolled fondant icing and edible decorations, cupcakes offer a personalized touch to make your wedding day your own.
However, even with their perfectly-portioned size, cupcakes can still be a little too much for your guests after a big chicken-or-fish meal. This is where cupcake favors come into play –
By boxing up your cupcakes into these cute little cupcake boxes, you’ll give your guests the freedom to choose when to indulge in the sweet confections. If they want to eat their cupcake after their meal, go for it! If they want to hold off until they get home, they’re more than welcome to. And, since everyone will have a cupcake favor, there’s no pressure to have their cake and eat it too. . . quickly that is.
Still not sold on the idea of cupcakes-to-go at your wedding reception? Try personalizing your cupcake boxes with your wedding emblem. Or, for a fancier approach, how about having your calligrapher add your names and the wedding date to each box? Even a clear mailing label printed with elegant font will do the trick. The possibilities are endless!
