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.
Dress up homemade or store bought cupcakes with real lace cupcake wrappers and picks.  Lace has long been associated with brides, and its combination with the "I do" pick is a quick, easy way to use it in the cupcake presentation.   

Cupcake bouquet.
Though this bridal bouquet looks deceptively real, it's just cupcakes.  Each cupcake is creatively arranged to resemble the flowers in the bride's bouquet complete with baby's breath and ribbons--adorably perfect for a bridal shower.

Fine like wine.
It's as though these cupcakes just spilled out of the vineyard.  Served on recycled wine crates topped with the couple's initials, this cupcake display bottles up the spirit of wine country.  

All you need is love.
Dressing up your cupcake display with a fun sign is an easy way to add personality to the table.  Here, a sign that reads "All you need is love and a cupcake" entices guests to choose their favorite flavor from an easy to serve cupcake tower.

She said yes.  
We say yes to this cupcake presentation celebrating a girl's best friend.  Beautiful cupcakes in the shape of a diamond ring with some added bling will have guests saying yes also.

Cake pops.
Incorporating cake pops into your bridal shower cake ideas is a sweet thing to do.  These delicately decorated cake pops gathered up in little bouquets can easily become part of the shower decor as well as an indulgent treat.

Triple crown.
No matter what the shower theme or style, this is a delightful way to honor the engaged couple.  These pull apart treats are put together in perfect likeness of a bride and groom, while the ring in the middle puts the icing on the cake.
