I'm in charge of cupcakes for my cousin's wedding shower in mid-July, and I'm kind of freaking out. I know I could make cupcakes that taste good, but I want to make them look nice and be interesting.

I have to make quite a few, so I've decided to make chocolate and vanilla cupcakes and then four different frostings to pair with them. I was thinking vanilla/caramel, vanilla/lemon, chocolate/mint and chocolate/peanut butter. I was also considering switching the mint to raspberry. What do y'all think of those flavor combos?

As far as presentation goes, I'm going to order some pretty cupcake liners and some kind of decorative thing to put on them (those silver/pearly ball sprinkles? cute-shaped hard candies?) and get some really serving plates/platters/trees.

How do these ideas sound to you all? I'm open to suggestions about literally any facet of this, or if you just have baking tips or frosting tips those too! Most importantly, if you were a bride, would this make you happy?
