Double duty

Bridesmaids, Cakes

Courtesy of Bakerella

You've heard of saving time and money by having centerpieces double as wedding favors, so why not do the same at your bridal shower? Having a favor act as a decoration is a great way for your bridesmaids to simplify the shower planning. These cupcakes will make your bridal shower decorations really pop—the delicious treats double as a centerpiece and dessert. Created by Angie Dudley of Bakerella, the miniature cupcakes are surprisingly easy to make. On her blog, Angie gives a step by step account of how she shapes the balls with a cookie cutter and then dips them in two candy coating colors. "The lollipops sticks send them over the edge of cuteness," Angie says. Check out for more versions of her whimsical cupcake pops. —Kathryn Papanek
