Red Velvet Cupcakes - A Hot Wedding Trend

Did you know that red velvet cupcakes are one of the hottest trends in weddings today? The moist, red interior of the cupcake coupled with a rich frosting is a real show stopper for wedding guests.

The great thing about wedding cupcake gifts is that you can bake them yourself or get a local baker to make a one-of-a-kind treat for your big day.  You can often vary the frosting as well from real vanilla buttercream to cream cheese like the recipe presented here.  Some people even choose to utilize a chocolate frosting.  The possibilities are endless.

Many brides also use cupcakes as the wedding favor for their guests to take home with them (in little specially-made boxes) like the ones from Wedding Favors Unlimited shown to the right.  We love that they can be personalized with your last name initial or monogram to make them even more special!
