To Cake or to Cupcake

While a traditional big white wedding cake seems to be the center piece for every wedding, I decided it just might not be for us. So, after thinking it over, we decided that cupcakes would be a fun and cute way to have our cake and eat it too.
I found to most beautiful cupcake liners that remind me of a theme that might be developing, pink and flowers.

I thought the pink liners would be adorable to include, to make each cupcake into a blooming flower. To see more great cupcake liners check them out here. I also found similar ones at Hobby Lobby and Michael's.
 I then began looking through ideas for how to decorate the wedding procession cake that Mark and I will be cutting and how I could incorporate the cupcakes with that. Instead of the over-used flower decorations for wedding cakes, I found a fun butterfly idea instead.
The butterflies are so fun and playful, I think it would add a very neat dimension to the cake and cupcakes. I found the butterflies here. A great idea to get these is the floral section in Hobby Lobby!
When I first started looking into the cupcake idea, I looked through pictures to get ideas and there have been so many great ways to create that look of a cake with the tiers, just by adding a stand.

This is a great idea to have the procession's cake at the top, which Mark and I would cut, while still having the cupcakes to match! This beautiful design can be found here.

Found here.

This one is fantastic, showing the possibilities of the butterflies!

The cake will be beautiful, I can't wait to see how these ideas turn into a masterpiece!
