Are Cupcakes Served Without Liners Professional?

Would you serve cupcakes without liners? I just really don't like the cupcake liners the party planner provided (it's my mom). I'm doing a white cake and my idea is to bake the cupcakes in a silicone cup and then put the decorated cupcake on a flattened liner. I am going to wrap blue ribbon on the edges of my cupcake stand and put a wood textured fondant on the surface of the stand then put the cupcakes on top of that. What do you think?

What about just getting cupcake wraps?

I was thinking about that as well. I can do it in animal print and just use them to cover the liners.

The other problem about displaying the cupcakes without a liner is that it exposes all that cake to the air, which will cause it to dry out.  Cupcake wraps will help with some of that, but unless the cake part is enclosed somehow (either with a liner or frosting), I think it's going to get dry.

I had not considered that. Thank you for bringing it up.

^^^^ My thoughts exactly. Plain foil liners are great to preserve moisture and make a neutral "backdrop" to anything else you may do. I love the look of the wrappers myself, and even make your own as I saw a template here once (use any scrapbook paper!).

I wish I had thought of that!
