Plus-Size Cupcakes

We’ve found the cupcakes to rule all cupcakes; they’re ginormous and made by Melissa of Buttercream Couture.

We can’t help but join the posse that’s obsessed with Melissa and her huge cupcakes, they’re just too fun.

Melissa bakes as a hobby and for enjoyment, but explains “Weddings have this nasty habit of trying to ruin my hobby so I take on only the ones that excite me. I rarely bake novelty cakes and strictly avoid anything that requires gobs of dye and glitter; everyone likes to look at those things, no one likes to eat them. My priority is pleasing the taste buds first; if I can please the eyes too then it’s a bonus.”

Bonus indeed. Here are a few of our favourite plus-sized beauties made by Melissa…

Dippable Cupcakes

What’s better then cupcakes? Cupcakes with fondue! The combination sounds beyond delicious and was the brain child of Amanda Krueger {the owner and head-chef of Bake It Pretty}.

When we saw this sweet idea it sparked a light bulb moment and we thought why not incorporate this fondue idea with the wedding cupcake trend. Now that’s bound to be a wedding dessert hit, especially with the kiddies.

Below you’ll find the DIY instructions for these sugary treats.


Step 1: Make a batch of your favourite mini cupcakes. Allow cupcakes to cool completely before dipping.

Step 2: Make the fondue {which is code for “runny frosting”} by whisking together powdered sugar, orange juice, and corn syrup. Adjust the consistency with a drop of liquid or a dash more powdered sugar until you get a smooth/thick glaze. You can change the flavour and colour of the fondue by adding a different liquid portion i.e. instead of orange juice, you could add grape juice.

Step 3. Pour fondue into the fondue pot. Display sprinkles and toppings in small cups around the fondue pot. Skewer cupcakes in the side and dip the top half into the fondue, then flip the cupcake over and decorate with your choice of toppings. Note that there’s no need to heat the mixture, but you can keep a small tea light underneath just to add a little something something to the presentation.

Ingredients & Materials

-3 cups powdered sugar

-1/3 cup liquid (orange juice, fruit juice, milk, or water)

-2 tablespoons light corn syrup

-Miniature-size cupcakes in the flavour of your choice, cooled and unfrosted

-Assorted sprinkles, chopped nuts, and other toppings

We’re suckers for a good bird themed wedding, so when we saw these bird themed wedding cakes and cupcakes, we were instantly overjoyed.

We especially like how the cakes are displayed on branch like cake-stands.

While we’re mad for birds, we do recommend exercising a little restraint if you decide to go with a bird themed wedding. You don’t want your guests to feel like they’ve walked into a Hitchcock movie.
