Wow Your Guests With Wedding Cake Cupcakes
Many brides are opting to break with tradition and choosing to go with wedding cupcakes instead of a traditional cake. One reason cupcakes have quickly become such a popular choice is the stunning displays that can be created when they are arranged on a cupcake tree or multi-tiered stand. They can also be a great choice for larger wedding where a diverse group of guests will be gathering. With a traditional wedding cake, you are usually limited to one or two flavor choices depending on how many layers your cake has. Cupcakes will allow you the flexibility to have several different kinds of cake and a wide variety of icings to top them with. Another major advantage can be cost savings. Many cake designers will charge extra for a cake just knowing that it will be used for a wedding because they know most people don’t have much of a choice other than to accept the inflated price.
Depending on how creative and skilled in the kitchen you are, some brides will even choose to make their own. Even if you decide you don’t want to be baking anywhere near your wedding day, there are professionals that can do all of the work for you. Last but certainly not least, cupcake wedding cakes are much easier and faster to serve guests than a regular cake which can allow for more time to enjoy the reception. After spending a considerable amount of money on a reception venue, you want to have as much time as possible to enjoy your time with friends and family. Cutting and serving a classic wedding cake can be one of the most time consuming elements of the reception. Cupcakes can allow you to cut that serve time in half and do it with much less of a mess!
Whether your wedding is going to be casual and relaxed or elegant and sophisticated, these can be made to fit your theme. What about presentation? You can do just as much if not more in terms of decorating as you can with a classic layered cake. All you need is a good wedding cupcake stand or tower and a little active involvement from your florist to create a magical display that you guests will love. Most major bridal magazines will have some photographic examples you use to get some ideas. Before you plan out your wedding, take the time to see if this popular wedding day trend could help you to create a memorable experience for you and your guests.
