My Obsession

I have a slight obsession with cupcakes. I don't eat them nearly as much as I would like, but the obsession has deep roots. I think it only fitting that I share my obsession with guest at our wedding. We plan on having cupcakes instead of a traditional cake with a cake topper for us to cut. I haven't decided on the type or style of cupcakes yet, but until I do, I'll be supplying you with plenty of tasty temptations.

I can't remember where I found this image, but I thought these looked so simple and fresh for a spring wedding.

I found these pretty pieces on Cupcakes Take The Cake. These are so elegant and refined. I love the fondant hearts and ribbon treatment. I think they may be a bit too sophisticated for the laid back preppy wedding we are striving for.

I found these on the Martha Stewart Weddings site. These are a bit too bright for me, but I love how the fondant hearts have the couple's initials on them. I think there is a way to tie all these together to achieve the perfect preppy cupcake tower. Wish me luck!

if lawyer boy and i were to ever tie the knot, we will def be having cupcakes instead of a wedding cake. with the dairy allergies, the cupcakes at bakery i help are one of the few cakes he can eat. they are soooo yummy and i think would be prefect for a wedding!

Love the cupcake towers! I have seen them in several places as I have been pouring over wedding websites and magazines. I once saw a cupcake tower where there was a thin grosgrain ribbon tied around the cake part of each cupcake. It was just darling!
