For the bride that goes for a modern touch mixed with iconic symbols.
Many bridal showers are contemporary in style and this cupcake design is ideal for such occasions. I used a Cricut machine to create the rings on the front of this cupcake wrap. (For more about the Cricut read the intro for the Art Deco Bride & Groom Cupcake.)
Wedding Ring Cupcake How-to:
Step 1: Familiarize yourself with the Cricut machine process as per the manufacturer's instructions.
Step 2: The "Rings" image is on Cricut's Potpourri Basket cartridge. Insert the cartridge into the Cricut machine and place the keypad over the buttons.
Step 3: Load black cardstock into the machine. Choose the "Rings" image on the keypadand set the size to 1". Press the button to cut out the image. Unload the paper and remove the image.
Step 4: Load cardstock that is a complementary color to your cupcake wrap paper into the machine. Press the Shift key and then press the Shadow key. Choose the Rings image again on the keypad and set the size to 1". Press the button to cut out the image. Unload the paper and remove the image.
Step 5: Use gluestick to apply the black image on top of the colored image.
Step 6: Apply a rhinestone to the ring using a dab of white glue; allow to dry.
Step 7: Bake a batch of your favorite cupcakes in baking cups and ice them with white frosting.
Step 8: Make a pattern for the cupcake wrap by wrapping white paper (or cardstock) around the cupcake and trimming it to fit.
Step 9: Place the cupcake wrap pattern on a modern-patterned paper, trace it, and cut it out.
Step 10: Wrap the cupcake with the modern paper and use tape to keep it closed.
Step 11: Use gluestick, or white glue if the rhinestone is too heavy, to attach the rings to the front of the wrap.
