I am a newbie baker and I would love to make a dear friend some really adorable cupcakes to celebrate her engagement. I have been bad and have spent a lot of money on tips, fondant cutters, mats, flower sets... and now I don't know what to do! Does anyone have any inspirational pictures I can look at? I want to bake them in those souffle cups and perhaps tie some ribbon around them... I just don't know what to do, my brain is going to explode!

Have you searched for engagement cupcakes or wedding cupcakes? I am sure you could browse the photos and come up with some really good ideas!

I've tried searching and for some reason even tho i type cupcakes i get mostly cakes! I really want to make cupcakes for the party.

I really like both those pictures, especially the first one, I may try that with some tiffany blue icing. ty!
