Do you have a wedding in your future? Maybe you or a loved one is getting married and you are planning a Bridal Shower. These Strawberry Cupcakes with Marshmallow Frosting are perfect to serve at a Bridal or Baby Shower.
When I think of dessert to serve at a Bridal Shower, I think of light, refreshing flavors like strawberry. So I started with Strawberry Cupcakes, added Homemade Marshmallow Frosting, then simple yet elegant decorations.
These Strawberry Cupcakes are also very versatile. You can certainly serve them for any occasion, Baby Shower, Birthday or even Valentine’s Day.
Mini hearts made from Candy Clay sit on top of Marshmallow Frosting decorated with Glitter Crystals and Sugar Pearls. Learn how to make Candy Clay.
And on some, Wilton Candy Rings from Walmart. Did you know that they have a wide range of items for Weddings and Bridal Showers? You can find them in the Party Section of your store.
I remember when I got married, 25+ years ago, it was difficult to find things for the Wedding, especially at a good price. It’s nice to see that Walmart is carrying these.
