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.
Or you could just forgo the stand all together:
I loooooooove the idea of using the cupcakes as pixels in a bigger picture. In this 8-bit cake table from Stephanie and Chase's Nerdabilly wedding, the groom's cake is Link, there's a life heart in the middle and the bride's cake is Princess Zelda.
Speaking of 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:
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!
