Beach Wedding Cupcake Ideas
Having trouble deciding on a cake theme for your beach wedding? Well there is no need to worry! In my previous post, I gave you some ideas as well as a photo collage of my favorite beach inspired wedding cakes. So in this post, I thought I'd share my thoughts and ideas regarding cupcakes for a beach wedding.
One of the biggest trends in wedding cakes this year is the fact that more and more brides are utilizing cupcakes instead of traditional layered wedding cakes. Generally cupcakes are less expensive and guests love getting their own individual dessert that they can either enjoy at the reception or take home with them in a little cupcake favor box.
Like the large beach cakes, small cupcakes tend to incorporate the same types of motifs to create a tropical or beach feel. Consider incorporating seashells or starfish, brightly colored tropical flowers, or palm trees constructed from chocolate or marzipan. The most popular color schemes for beach inspired cupcakes are a sandy neutral brown or an ocean blue.
In the photo collage below, you can see some of my favorite beach inspired cupcake displays. In all cases, I like the use of cupcake stands to create an impressive, tall display. As you can see, the most popular beach theme is seashells that are likely molded out of chocolate. You can use various shapes on each cupcake (you can even use the shapes to denote different cupcake flavors). For instance, you could use a starfish shape to indicate chocolate cupcakes, a seashell to denote vanilla cupcakes, and a seahorse shape to denote red velvet cupcakes. The possibilities are endless!
