Notice it is a bit lopsided. Lining up the pint glasses proved a bit difficult. I think next time I'll try this cupcake stand as I think it might turn out sturdier. Though I also like the idea of using a clear glass container like this one and putting flowers or fish inside of it to make it more interesting.

And since I'm trying to convince my fiance that I can make the cupcakes for our wedding, here's a couple pictures of the ones I make for his birthday:
Raspberry filled lemon cupcake with lemon cream cheese frosting
Raspberry filled chocolate cupcakes

I made the lemon cream cheese frosting from scratch and it was just to die for!
What do you think? Are my cupcakes good enough for a wedding?
