Cupcake Wedding Cakes
A Unique and Affordable Alternative
A new and more economical trend in wedding cake design is the cupcake wedding cake. Cupcake wedding cakes are cheaper then elaborate wedding cakes simply because they are easier for a baker to make.
Brides-to-be can order individually decorated cupcakes and have them organized on a tiered cake stand just as a tiered wedding cake would be displayed. Plain cupcakes can also be ordered from a bakery or grocery store and decorated by the bride with simple pieces of fresh fruit or single flower buds.
Additional ways to decorate your cupcakes is with the following:
- Dried rosebuds
- Sugared Gerber daisies
- Hershey kisses
- Fresh strawberries or raspberries
- Confectionary fall leaves or snowflakes
- Gummy hot lips candies
- Sweet tarts candies
- Silk ribbons or butterflies
The great thing about a cupcake wedding cake is that it is much less intimidating to bake yourself compared to baking and decorating an entire multi-layer wedding cake. Couples can do a trial run by baking cupcakes and decorating them to see how they turn out. Then they can distribute them to friends and family for a review.
Another benefit to having a cupcake tree at your wedding is that guests will be presented with an individual cake made just for them. Cupcakes can be made from various flavors - vanilla, chocolate, chocolate chip, carrot, banana, spice, dark fudge, cherry and even dried fruit - this way there will be a flavor to suit every wedding guest's taste buds.
