Wedding Cupcakes

So, cake.

This is something I definitely think we can do ourselves. I'm pretty confident in my baking abilities, and I know that I'll have some enlisted help. But I'm not so sure I can crank out an enormous, tiered, frosted mountain of cake. Which is why we've decided to go with cupcakes.
They're cute, there's no need for slicing and serving, and making them will be considerably less work than baking, assembling and frosting a huge wedding cake.

This is what I'm thinking:

Cute, right?

More than anything, I want them to taste really good. Wedding cake usually seems to suck.

I've linked to the blog ming makes cupcakes, and I'm starting to try some of her recipes. The Flourless Beet Chocolate Cupcakes (#31) are SO GOOD. We've made two batches in the past two weeks. Yeah.

Anyway, I'll be testing out recipes occasionally. I'll try my best to post our findings.



  1. Are you looking for a recipe from scratch? I've got my own chocolate one that can be modified with malt, skor/heath pieces, marshmallow, etc., and it's very moist. Holds up really well for decorations and transport. (I used it for Grandma's 90th cake). I also have a chocolate zucchini one that ends up like a brownie, and a pumpkin muffin that rocks, too. Let me know if you are interested. Enjoy yourselves! Eve

  2. Yes, I am a from-scratch kind of girl.
    Email me what you have and I'll try it out.
