Wedding Cupcake Favors & Cupcake Boxes
Wedding cupcakes make great wedding favors when placed in individual cupcake boxes!
Interested in offering your wedding reception guests a cupcake as a wedding favor? You're not alone, cupcakes are quickly becoming a very popular wedding favor choice for many brides.
If you are thinking about offering cupcake wedding favors and baking the cupcakes yourself, you'll want to be sure that the frosting you top your cupcakes with can sit at room temperature for several hours and probably overnight - you don't want to send your wedding guests home with food poisoning! There are several types of frosting and icings that can sit at room temperature, but chocolate ganache topping is most recommended to top wedding favor cupcakes because it is safe at room temp for over one day or longer depending on the chocolate ganache recipe.
There are a variety of wedding cupcake favor boxes available so you can put an individual cupcake in it's own box. Favor boxes come in all colors and different sizes, from square, cylinder/round or the ever popular cupcake gable box. Most colorful boxes are made from cardboard, but you can also find clear cupcake boxes made from plastic or acetate. Translucent colored boxes are also popular and come in a rainbow of colors. Here are some of our favorite cupcake box ideas:
You can have custom stickers printed with your wedding monogram, or your wedding theme to seal your wedding cupcake favor boxes with. Tying the boxes with ribbon matching your wedding colors is another way to glamorize your wedding cupcake favors. Adding a tag with a quote or a note of thanks is also a popular way to add a special touch to your favor box. There are endless ways to get creative and personalize your wedding cupcake favors, many of which you can do yourself!
