    yeah, the thing about the colored/patterned liners is, when you bake things in them, they don’t look like they did before they went into the oven.  its harder to see the patterns afterwards.

    now if you made like a quarter sheet cheesecake and sliced it into squares and then just placed it in the liners that would look good.

    or maybe you could even “double up” on liners if you’re not worried about being wasteful.  for example bake the cupckaes in one liner, then just place it in another line after they cool so the color is brighter, does that make sense?

    @pohget: i really like @Lee_Ann: ‘s idea of doubling up. You could bake everything in a white or one solid color that matches your theme. then pop them into your colored liners, and if you hate the colors/patterns together, everything will still have been baked in a liner to match your theme anyways, so you’ll be ok!

    ok well firstly try not to stress yourself too much, because im sure you know that the more you stress,  the more clouded your judgement becomes and you start second guessing yourself!! Secondly, I think it depends if you are having a colourful wedding theme, if so go all out with the colours it makes it fun and light hearted. However if you are after a more serious and formal cocktail reception I would personally stick to neutrals ๐Ÿ™‚ Hope that helps.

    I think the colored liners will work really well for all the desserts, as long as you don’t use too many different colors.  I really do like that last picture of the cheesecake squares, they look pretty dramatic all by themselves ….. maybe have the cheesecake in no wrappers?

    Maybe it would be cute to do colored ones but all different designs and some plain ones of your wedding colors. As I write this I see your inspiration is exactly what I’m typing so I guess I just say do colors.It will be really fun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I know you said that you were having trouble imagining how the colours will look together so I found a couple of pictures with the different liners, granted they look more fun than formal but I’m sure you can classy it up for your wedding if you like:

    Also, if your very crafty you could do cupcake holders like these:

    ps. sorry for the large photos!

    @pohget: if you do decide that you can plop on another DIY, I think the wrappers are great ๐Ÿ™‚

    Saw you post on the photogrophy thread, and it reminded me of something, I thought of you the other night! I was making reg sized cupcakes this week and realized I have some of the same blue and green mini cupcake liners you have pictured above. I plan on making some mini’s next week sometime, so I’ll use those and send you pics so you can visualize them mixed and matched together ๐Ÿ™‚
