MY OTHER RECIPES

These gorgeous white wedding cupcakes were INSPIRED by the wedding season that’s upon us as well as the royal wedding, which happened a few days ago.

These white cake cupcakes are SOFT and MOIST and that frosting is super creamy.

MY OTHER RECIPES

I have experimented with many wedding cupcakes from cake mix recipes but hands down, this is the BEST white cupcake recipe from scratch.

You can do a simple buttercream swirl on top of each cupcake but I think a wedding deserves more than that, which is why I made these BUTTERCREAM flowers. There are 10 different flower designs and they are all BEAUTIFUL.

White Wedding Cupcakes Recipe

I know there are many DIY wedding cupcake ideas/ wedding themed cupcakes online and in magazines but this is my SPIN on it and I think they are very ELEGANT and so much cheaper than buying from a bakery.

Also, I have been noticing a new fun and modern trend: Some couples are choosing to set up white cupcake wedding cake towers instead of serving a tiered wedding cake at their weddings. It definitely breaks the traditions but I think it’s so COOL!

How to Decorate White Wedding Cupcakes

I used Nicole’s Kitchen products to make these stunning yet simple decorated cupcakes. These products  are only available in A.C. Moore stores. This icing tip set is AWESOME! There are so many different tips, which are ORGANIZED so nicely in this perfect box. It even includes a coupler and flower nails. Everything is so easy to find and easy to store.

I also really like their spatulas and whisks because the colors are so PRETTY and pastel plus they are very high quality and sturdy.

White Buttercream Flower Cupcakes

Tips for decorating wedding cupcakes:

  • Make sure icing has a medium consistency. It should NOT be too “runny” or else the design won’t hold it shape.
  • Allow the cupcakes to COOL down completely before your start piping because if not, the heat will cause the icing to melt and ruin the design.
  • PRACTICE on a sheet of wax paper before piping on top of the cupcakes.

White Cupcakes Recipe

Tips for moist white cupcakes recipe from scratch:

  • DON’T use egg yolks in the the white cupcakes recipe because that would give the cupcakes a subtle yellow color and you don’t want that for weddings.
  • DON’T replace buttermilk with any other milk because that’s one key ingredient for giving these cupcakes a soft texture.
  • Yogurt can be REPLACED with sour cream.
  • DON’T use salted butter because that will make the cupcakes very salty.
  • Check out all my other frosting recipes and make various flavor combinations.
  • Recipe can easily be DOUBLED to make a bigger batch of cupcakes.
  • To make white chocolate cupcakes, replace American  buttercream frosting with white chocolate buttercream frosting.
