For a truly personal home made gift, you could bake some delicious cookies or cupcakes and decorate them with icing or sprinkles that match the wedding theme. How about using a sugar craft stencil to emboss the sugar coating on top of each cupcake? We love this stencil by Cut Bake Stamp on Etsy >>> Embossed cakes have a neat, professional look but sugar icing embossers could not be any simpler to use.
