1. Arrange by colour
â€¨Choose a variety of colours of icing to decorate your cupcakes with. Arrange the cupcakes in rows sorted by colour to create a beautiful, rainbow-like display.â€¨â€¨
2. Use a cupcake towerâ€¨
Forget traditional birthday cakes! A cupcake tower is an impressive way to display cupcakes, and everyone will be delighted to choose their own cupcake. You can arrange them by placing one flavour per tier or mix them all up. It's up to you!
3. Accent with flowersâ€¨
Cupcakes and flowers pair perfectly together. A single cupcake presented with a pretty single stem or bouquet is a lovely and thoughtful gift for any occasion.
4. Use around-the-house utensilsâ€¨
We love the idea of displaying your cupcakes on the back of a large wooden spoon. It's a simple idea that will add a touch of rustic elegance to your cupcake display.
5. Pretty tableclothâ€¨
Find a pretty patterned tablecloth and arrange your cupcakes neatly upon it. Choose your tablecloth colour based on the colour of your cupcakes. A gingham or damask pattern will look lovely.
6. Use small saucersâ€¨
Small saucers can hold three to four cupcakes each. Instead of trying to squeeze all your cupcakes onto one big platter, spread numerous small saucers across the table, each holding a handful of cupcakes. For a pretty look, use vintage china plates that you can find at flea markets.
