For our wedding, Aaron and I decided to ditch the wedding cake and do cupcakes instead — they're easy, they're generally cheaper and it eliminated the “cutting of the wedding cake” moment that neither of us was looking forward to. But before we decided on the kind of cupcakes, I started to research what I wanted as far as the cupcake display.
Here are a few cupcake display options that I found on my search…
The classic round cupcake tower:
I'm also a fan of the more modern square look:
I like the modern lines on this cupcake stand from Darcey‘s wedding. And that wooden cupcake tower is to DIE for. Wow. I bet if you were pretty handy with a buzz saw you could create something like this.
Presenting a table of cupcakes:
What about using a bunch of smaller cupcake stands (I'm sure you know several people from whom you could borrow serving stand or two) and laying them out all over a big round table.
We ended up with an asymmetrical design:
This was created by taking apart one of those cardboard cupcake stands and then rearranging the levels using bowls and platters of various shapes and sizes. I loved that it looked like a coral reef or something.
For those who want to have their cupcakes and cut a cake too:
Of course, if you're the kind of couple that's looking forward to the “cutting of the cake” moment you can do that too! Top your cupcake tower with an additional mini “cutting cake.”
There are just SO many different way to display your cupcakes — small round towers, tall square towers, no tower, a lot of towers, etc. Did you have or are you going to have a unique cupcake display at your wedding? Leave your ideas in the comments!
