For the hopeless romantics out there, vintage-style cupcakes would make the sweetest treats to serve at a Valentine’s Day tea party. Frosted in the prettiest pastel shades and decorated with dainty flowers, lace, ribbons, and tiny pearls, these cupcake creations we found are almost too lovely to eat! But do go ahead and indulge. It’s Valentine’s!
Something Dainty & Pretty for Valentine’s
1 – If it’s pretty you want, these “I do” cupcakes have got to be it! The image source at Cutest Food doesn’t provide details. But just looking at the band of delicate lace, the pearl sprinkles, and the sweet little ribboned flag, you know these are just the thing for a vintage wedding dessert display!
2 – These flower-topped cupcakes by Inspired by Cake have a definite vintage air. It’s probably due to the shades of pink, from blush to peach to dusty rose and the hint of sparkle from silver nonpareils. Lovely!
3 – A delicate tracing of piped lace, plus gorgeously real-looking roses make these cupcakes really special. Created by the always amazing Cotton and Crumbs (found via Me and You Lookbook), they would make delightful surprises at a tea party—sitting in a tea cup on each guest’s place setting!
4 – These are basic chocolate cupcakes. But they were dolled up for Valentine’s by Naomi of Baker’s Royale with a generous topping of vanilla Swiss meringue buttercream frosting (sounds yum!)—meticulously piped into the shape of a rose! Want to try your hand at it? Her post gives the link to the Wilton tutorial.
5 – Monograms and intertwined hearts are wonderful ways to personalize your Valentine or wedding cupcakes. Featured on Culinary Couture, these toppers were made with candy melts (and oodles of patience apparently!). But they turned out such a charming match to the purple damask cupcake liners, don’t you think?
