Cupcake towers, picks, and wrappers, oh my!
Some are practical, others decorative, but all give a little something extra that makes your cupcake presentation memorable.  From delicate lace cupcake wrappers to distinctive displays using cupcake towers, you are sure to find a look you love.



Wedding Shower Cupcakes

When it comes to cupcakes, there is no such thing as too many, so plan a presentation that will be sweetly sensational.  These luscious treats allow you to tempt your guests with choices.  The number of flavors is up to you but, if you decide to serve a variety, two or possibly three choices works out well.


Lace cupcake wrappers.
