Nothing says spring…like saying “I Do!” While there is love in the air – there is also hectic planning for the big day. No worries for the wedding cake – serve cupcakes instead! Perfect for an engagement party, rehearsal dinner or for the main event  – these “love bird” wafer paper designs and cupcake wrappers will give you a fantastic display without all the fuss!

For the cupcakes we used a light blue construction paper to get the blue shade behind the cupcake wrapper. Try using paper in your theme colors to tie the cupcakes into the rest of your creatively planned decor. 
To make wafer paper shapes for cupcakes or cookies you will need: Wedding Love Bird Wafer Paper, royal icing mix, light corn syrup and edible dragees, pearls and other decorations to complete the look. Wedding Love Bird Wafer paper includes one sheet of vintage bird designs and one sheet of French dictionary love sayings. 

Love Bird Cupcake Wrappers are available in sets of ten wrappers and are a cinch to put together.
