Hey all!
So, I'm gonna be doing the baking for my wedding in July. I'll be making lots of mini-cupcakes for my guests, and don't want to spend forever trying out recipes. I'm hoping to get some stellar, tried and true recipes from you guys to make my life a little easier. :)

So, could you hit me with your best 100% from scratch recipes for:

*Rose.
*Pink Lemonade.
*Peaches and Cream.
*Margarita.
*Mango.

I haven't quite decided exactly how I want to do them yet, so any cake or frosting you love that fits these flavors would be great. My only request is no/minimal chocolate, simply because it gets warm in San Jose in July, and chocolate will probably get melty/feel heavy. I'm aiming for light cakes.

TIA!

I trust the Cupcake Project completely, because she tests her recipes a million times, and she definitely has a peaches and cream cupcake (http://www.cupcakeproject.com/2010/02/peaches-and-cream-cupcakes.html), so you could check her recipe index for the others (or anything that catches your fancy!).

I definitely think you can (with experimentation) adapt recipes as you need to! I adapted a vanilla cupcake into a root beer cupcake once to great success, and it's kind of a fun process!

I can't help with the cupcakes, but I can help with icing. I recommend making Italian Buttercream and simply flavoring it with various complementary flavors. You can use a little shortening to help it resist the heat some, too.

If you do make mango cupcakes, tell us how it came out. I love mango, and it isn't in nearly enough baked goods.

A friend of mine has a super awesome recipe for mango blueberry muffins with coconut, I'll have to ask her for it.

I don't have any recipes to share yet because I'm new here to this community but I just wanted to say Congrats on getting married in July.
