Cupcakes are delicious and adorable. I don’t know why, but everything is more irresistible when it’s miniature. They’re great for every celebration, and now more modern brides are choosing towers of cupcakes over the traditional wedding cake. They’re easy to serve and less expensive than an elaborate tiered creation. Cupcake wedding towers are a no fuss modern alternative. And you can have the bakery make a smaller traditional wedding cake to save for your first year anniversary.
Decorate the stand and tiers to look cohesive like this tropical cupcake tower. Also cupcakes allow you to have different flavors and include all the elements of your color scheme in a unique way.

Ok, this really has nothing to do with weddings, BUT since I am such a lover of hot wings I just HAD to post this!!!!
Can you believe this is soap, lol?!!? This blows my mind! I found this hot wing olive oil soap on Etsy this morning while trying to avoid working on Modern Girl. I am probably going to buy it – it’s only a mere $5. But what if I accidentally ate it? It looks so good I could see myself actually doing something so idiotic.
Ok, but seriously… maybe you *could* use this in a wedding somehow? If you are having a backyard bbq rehearsal dinner (like I did, hehe) then you could hand these out as favors!!! That would be pretty cool, I must admit. Just be wary of hungry young children like myself trying to eat them :p
Actually, this next picture really *does* have to do with weddings! As I continued perusing this soap shop, I came across these:
Remember my cupcake post from a few days ago? Well, if you’re thinking about doing funky cupcakes instead of a cake, wouldn’t it be freaking awesome if you gave these little cupcake soaps out as favors?!? Just wrap them up in some cellophane and throw a ribbon around them and you’ve got a totally sweet (no pun intended, especially since they’re soap) wedding favor! You would seriously have to warn people that the favors were NOT edible or else you might have a lawsuit on your hands after the wedding. That yellow one looks so moist and delicious, doesn’t it?
I am beside myself over these freaking amazing wedding cupcakes!!! Can you believe these are edible???? Maybe I’m overly excited because I feel like I could eat a cow right now and the pictures are NOT helping.

In all seriousness though, I am blown away by the sheer detail and work that goes into these cupcakes. One, two, maybe three cupcakes… ok, I can see making them. But imagine doing this kind of work for an ENTIRE WEDDING! I’ve got to give these cupcake makers props!
Great color scheme - pink coral and aquamarine!
While it would be gorgeous to make a cupcake tower out of these cupcakes in place of your wedding cake, using these for favors would be even better. Imagine your guests getting to take home such an amazing goodie to cherish and then devour for a midnight snack after the wedding!
I love this one - it has a kind of 1980s Hobby Holly feel.
Looks good enough to eat! :d
