First off, this is my very first post! I have used this site for so many times and sincerely appreciate all you!
Ok, we are getting married in April and colors are eggplant and kind of an apple green. We are having cupcakes instead of a cake, but want to create the same affect that a cake would. We have a tower that we can use, but not all of the cupcaks will fit on it.
I am having a hard time thinking of any creative ideas and the lady that is doing our cupcakes has a lot of questions… and I am just not sure what will look the best.
We are going for a romantic feel and wil have tons of tulips. Does anyone have any creative ideas?
I am trying to decide if we want to put the rest of the cupcakes on the table below the stand. I am also trying to figure out what cupcake liners to use or what color frosting. She said she could make a little flower design but I dont want it to look to crazy and busy. What have you seen that looks really great?
Thank you so much!!!!!!

Is it a self serve cupcake display? If its not you can just have the extras in back and let the staff serve them.

That may be an option! My only concern is the stand is not that big and it will look a little lonely. I may need to look into a different stand.

What about a second stand? You could probably find some on here or craigslist. That may make the table look fuller.
maybe you could do the cupcakes that are on teh stand with the tulips on them and the rest plain, using like green wrappers and eggplant icing?

There are parchment cupcake liners now that come off perfectly and do not mar the finish of the cupcakes at all. You can leave them plain, or place them into a pretty liner for display.
Personally, I am a fan of simplicity. When you repeat one thing many times, it is much more attractive than something too busy.
Something like this using green instead of yellow:
or this pretty adornment

Here’s some ideas for the cupcake decor:
Maybe you could do the pearls in green too.

Those are great pictures! Awesome ideas. 🙂
I definitely do not like the two stands, but I like the options of surrounding the stand and layering it.
I love the purple liners! I just need to see if I can find those.

two of my favorite cupcake links are listed below. Try to put the color on the paper instead of in the frosting, people get weird about eating colors (just my experience). The nicer the presentation, the better the photos will look. Try to get shot of cupcakes before wedding in case taable gets bumped or crazy uncle Al decides to take one before he’s supposed to 🙂
You can also use toothpicks w/paper designs to save on labor charges for decorating with frosting. I’ve added a link to some vintage style picks too from ebay – super cute but maybe not your taste.

We bought a cupcake stand from cupcaketree.com, and it held 10 dozen full sized cupcakes, and 7 dozen mini cupcakes with room to spare. If it hadn’t of fit we were planning to put them on the table around the tree.

I know this is an old post… but for the cupcake that are purple, with like shimmer and pearls on it… what did you use for the shimmer? I want my cupcakes for my wedding to have that look! 🙂

Sieloon: I am guessing it is edible glitter. We are using that on my daughter’s cupcakes 🙂
