cupcakes on trial

I desperately need to get the cupcake brainstorming session started. Like so many other DIY wedding projects, the cupcakes for our wedding will definitely require a few trial runs.

I've already purchased Martha's cupcake bible and bookmarked about 10 different recipes I'd like to try out. Of course, carrot cake will be a necessity for Mr. FP. And I'm really liking the sound of these chocolate and peanut butter cupcakes that a little birdie weds posted today.

There's so many great recipes out there that the phrase "so many cupcakes, so little time" keeps running through my head. Two weeks ago as I was perusing the Martha book, I began wondering how the heck we were going to be able to narrow it down to a single flavor. Yeah right, not possible; I'm the most indecisive person ever. Especially when it comes to something this yummy.

And then it dawned on me. We'll have multiple flavors at the wedding (yeah, maybe an obvious conclusion, but for some reason, I was convinced that we should only have one flavor... holy wedding industry brain, batman). This way, we can reduce the stress of choosing and ensure that each guest will be able to find something they like.

We recently found a cupcake tree like the one below for sale though an online classified ad and since someone in our area was selling hers after her wedding, we got it at a great price and didn't have to worry about ordering online or shipping costs.


So I figure each layer can hold a different flavor cupcake in hopes that everyone will be able to find something they like.

I love when I think up ways to avoid making decisions. It makes life so much easier.

Oh, and if anyone has any cupcake recipes that they swear by, please share them! Anything goes.
