So you’ve successfully cherry-picked your theme, décor and food menu for your bridal shower. If you’re having cupcakes in the menu it’ll be good if those complement your theme. The bride is going to cherish the shower for years to come and you can make it even more memorable by decorating your cupcakes to show your love for the bride or send across an unspoken message through them.
I have some delectable ideas to turn your yummy but bland-looking cupcakes into a feast for the eyes as well as the palate of your guests.
Bridal Shower Cupcake Ideas
Always A Girl At Heart
Women no matter how many years into marriage will always be girls at heart. Turn your simple vanilla or strawberry cupcakes into an elegant visual. All you need to do is decorate each cupcake with pink or white frosting with the help of an icing bag with a decorative tip. Cut out fondant flowers and butterflies with help of shape cutters in hues of pink and white. Place the butterflies and flowers on tip of the frosting to show some very girly and fresh-looking cupcakes.
Fresh From The Garden
This idea works best if you’re having a garden themed shower. Any flavor cupcakes can be used for this. You can either use simple frosting or vanilla buttercream in green food color.
With the help of a fine tipped icing bag make grasses on top of each cupcake with green colored frosting or buttercream. With shape cutter make small pansies from pink, lavender or white fondants and place like flowers on grass bed. Your cupcakes will look very fresh and really complement the theme.
When you think of a bride all that comes to your mind is pretty tulle white gown, veils and fresh roses. Why not turn your cupcakes to resemble a beautiful bride? Use vanilla cupcakes for this one. With a decorative tip, decorate each cupcake with nice white frosting. Make small roses using white chocolate. Place these roses on the cupcakes and your lovely pretty-as-a-bride cupcakes are all set!
Walking Down The Aisle
After the heart touching exchange of rings and vows and that lovely you- may –now- kiss -the -bride kiss the married couple walk down the aisle together. Let’s make cupcakes to resemble both the bride and the groom. You can use any cupcake for this one but vanilla works best.
Using fondant and shape cutters make bust-sized tuxedoes and gowns. Give nice neckline to both the dresses and then attach these to your cup cakes with help of some buttercream to make your cupcakes look like a groom and bride’s bust. You can pot edible beads on the “bride” cupcake to resemble a necklace. Your bride and groom are ready to walk down the aisle!

These cupcakes are heavenly and elegant. If the bride is graceful and elegant you can decorate the cupcakes match her. Rich chocolate cupcakes can be used. Decorate them with white frosting in a swirly manner using a decorative tip. Use chocolate fondant to make flowers. Place the flowers at the center of each cupcake and attach some edible silver beads to the middle of each flower to give an elegant touch.
Give Me Pink!
If your bride is in love with everything pink or you’re having a pinky themed shower you may want to try out these cupcakes. Strawberry cupcakes work best.
Make some strawberry meringue buttercream and decorate each cupcake with it. Place a nice plum strawberry on top of each cupcake. There, you have a beauty in pink!
If you’re having a shower with a color theme you can just frost your cupcakes with that color. You may add sprinklers of matching color to play along with the theme.
