Wedding Wednesdays: A Little Help, Please

. So I haven't actually started any cupcake making.  Life has gotten in the way quite a bit, but it will happen.  SOON!  In the meantime, I've been chatting with the groom quite a bit about this whole adventure and we agreed that asking the advice of friends, family, and the infinite blogging world seemed like a great idea.  So here goes.

The couple gave me a few cupcake combinations that they'd be interested in taste-testing, and then eventually [if I can even come up with good enough cupcakes!] they'll narrow down the selection to two for the actual wedding.  Here's their list:

Churro Cupcakes
Italian Wedding Cake Cupcakes
Lemon Cupcakes
Key Lime Cupcakes
Carrot Cake Cupcakes
Apple Cinnamon Cupcakes
Vanilla Cupcakes with Blueberry Filling
Limoncello Cupcakes

Okay, so the Churro Cupcake.  I previously made the cupcake the groom is referring to a little while back, but have failed to post about it yet.  I will though, trust me.  It's good.  And apparently the groom thought so, too!  As for the rest of their selections, I've never attempted them.  Except for the Carrot Cake Cupcakes but I think I want to try out some other recipes for that one.  

So what I'm asking from you is if you have any recipes, ideas, suggestions, etc., for any of these cupcake combinations that you'd care to share!  Any and all advice is welcomed with wide open arms.  Please!  

Also, isn't this picture lovely?


This is the couple's wedding bouquet!  Bright, colorful, and fun, huh?!  In one way or another, I'm going to have to incorporate these colors into the cupcakes as well.  Ideas?

Oh, and if anyone knows where I can order very nice, fancy cupcake liners, please do tell!  I haven't started looking yet, but I know there's plenty of sites and businesses out there that I don't know about.  

Thanks guys, can't wait to get going on this project! .

  1. Hey Jess, I came across your blog on facebook! First of all let me say everything looks amazing on here! Secondly, I actually just made key lime cupcakes the other day. Here's my recipe: http://monicacuevas.com/2011/08/24/key-lime-cupcakes/

  2. Hey Jess-

    I would say to do the most delicious and out there cupcake(s) you can do! It is always fun to have things at weddings that are not usually there - like cup cakes or dessert bars! they add creativity to the whole ordeal! Maybe if you could even do some bold frosting on the cakes to go with the bold flowers they have chosen.

    I should take advice from your blog too! mine... www.rockoutandbemarried.blogspot.com is in its infancy. if you have any suggestions please let me know!

  3. In regards to lemon cupcakes, I'm a HUGE fan of Martha Stewart's Tender Lemon Cake.

    I've made it twice now, and once for a wedding cake. It's super delicious, easy and stands up well. I haven't attempted to make cupcakes with it, but I'm sure it would work fabulously! I'm a big fan of swiss buttercream for wedding stuff, as it's nice and light, and stands up well to heat and time...
