Chocolate Cherry Cupcakes
To create this chocolate cherry cupcake, just tuck a luscious chard of creamy dark chocolate into the frosting. Then, nestle a fresh cherry next to the chocolate for a cupcake that is high on style and flavor. We like the richness of the dark chocolate with the unexpected freshness of the fresh, ripe cherry. This cupcake is dressed in the Plum cupcake wrapper from the Jeweled Amethyst Dessert Skirtz collection.
Elegant Salted Caramel Cupcakes
This cupcake is topped with a rich caramel sauce and a sprinkle of coarse sea salt. For a kiss of color, we added edible flowers. Customizing your colors for party or wedding cupcakes is so easy with a pretty flower and a stunning cupcake wrapper. This cupcake is dressed with the Jeweled Amethyst Dessert Skirtz by Confetti Couture.
Exquisite Pomegranate Cupcakes
The tart pomegranate and fruity syrup drizzle makes for a gorgeously gourmet cupcake. The fresh, tart flavor from the pomegranate contrasts perfectly with the creamy, sweet frosting on the cupcake.
These easy gourmet cupcakes look so special, they are a perfect wedding cake solution. What an easy way to keep the budget down and the style high!
