Elegant Wedding Cupcake Towers
Wedding cupcake towers can be beautiful
Wedding cupcakes can be just as elegant, beautiful, and refined as a traditional wedding cake. The cupcakes can be displayed on a tiered cake stand. The top layer can be a small wedding cake for the bride and groom to cut for the traditional wedding cake cutting photograph. A simple fondant covered cake serves as an elegant wedding cupcake tower topper.
Tiered cupcake stands are found in a variety of shapes and styles, but the most common or circles and squares. The small cake can then either be a circle or square to mirror the shape of the tiered cupcake stand. Round cakes are more traditional and romantic in style, whereas square cakes are considered to be elegant and modern.
