We’re providing our cupcake maker with liners of our choice. There will be six flavors of cupcakes, each visually differentiated. Should I provide him with two colors of cupcake liners, as our colors are blue and orange? Or should I provide him with six different colors to further differentiate between flavors?
I know, epic, right??
The flavors are:
pineapple — with bits of candied pineapple on top
orange — with ginger frosting, so pieces of crystallized ginger on top
lemon poppy seed — with lemon flecked frosting
bourbon bacon chocolate – with a piece of candied bacon on top

First of all, delicious favours! It’s so nice to see someone using something besides just vanilla and chocolate!
Second, when I do cupcakes I just use liners in the couples colours, if there’s 1 colour, I use 1 liner if there’s 3 I use three liners.
Youll be able to tell them apart because of the designs and colour of the actual cuppie.

Ok, first, your cupcakes sound amazing. Second, can you provide 6 different colors, but within your color scheme? Orange makes it tough, but maybe: light blue, medium blue, dark blue, light orange/yellow, medium orange, deep orange/red?
I didn’t vote because my suggestion is a hybrid.

I would assume that the frosting and decor on top of the cupcake will help differentiate between the different cupcakes. At least that is what I look at when I compare cupcakes in a bakery window.

Thank you for stirring up my sweet taste buds so early! I’m almost drooling over my keyboard!
Are the cupcakes going to be displayed by flavor (like one flavor per tier or stand)? If they are, you could do a cute little sign noting the flavor for that area. Then it wouldn’t matter what colors your holders are. I think the two matching wedding colors would look great and keep it simple.

Do you have six colors you like for liners? If your baker is willing and it won’t look too busy I’d be tempted to choose 6 colored liners! My only concern would be your cupcake display looking too busy, so maybe if your icing colors will match your liners or they’re decorated simply, go for it!
If you want intricate decorations on top I’d go with 2 liner colors 🙂

Oooh Love the patterned ones! That was genius. Still the same colors but it looks fun.

@peachacid: I think you couldn’t go wrong either way. I like the idea of 6 liners. Though I’m not sure show to distinguish between lemon & pineapple and chocolate & bacon chocolate. If you did patterns it could work, but they would need to coordinate as not to look to busy. I would try the following:
chocolate – brown
vanilla – cream/white
pineapple — yellow
orange — orange
lemon poppy seed — yellow with black dots or stripes
bourbon bacon chocolate – brown striped
or I’d do blue liners for orange, pineapple and Lemon and yellow for vanilla and the chocolates.

@peachacid: I say you only need one color cupcake liner…because the bourbon bacon chocolate cupcake sounds so good, who would eat anything else?? Yum, drooling!
