Wedding Trends: Cupcakes
Your wedding reception is a magical event. From the delectable cuisine to dancing the night away, your guests will enjoy your reception and talk about it for years to come. If you want to make your big event really stand out, be sure to have a dessert to remember. Everyone looks forward to the dessert portion of a reception. Your guests will be expecting a traditional tiered cake, but instead surprise them by serving the latest trend in weddings – cupcakes. From convenience to customization, cupcakes can provide your big day with a variety of benefits.
You have a lot to plan for your wedding. From flowers to seating arrangements, you have a lot on your mind. You shouldn’t have to worry about whether or not your dessert will get to your reception location on time and intact. With cupcakes, these individual desserts can be transported from the bakery to the venue with little to no hassle. The majority of the time your cupcakes can be stored simply in Tupperware or other types of easy-to-transport containers. In addition, if so desired you or someone you designate can transport the cupcakes to the venue for you. However, we recommend that if your bakery of choice offers delivery services, let the professionals handle it for the best possible result.
Sometimes wedding cakes can break the bank depending on the size, decorations and additional features. Cupcakes however, tend to be generally less expensive. If you consider that a typical wedding cake costs anywhere between $7 and $12 per slice. On the contrary, cupcakes can cost anywhere from $2 to $4 per cupcake. Of course, these costs vary depending on your wedding specifications such as number of mouths to feed, type of design (extravagant vs. ordinary), and even transportation distance.
Surprise your guests with a unique and original dessert spread. When you choose cupcakes over a traditional cake, you have the ability to add your own personal creativity to your dessert spread. Instead of settling on one frosting and cake combination, cupcakes allow you to offer your guests a variety of different flavors. With so many design options, you can add your personal touch by matching your wedding theme, using the colors of your favorite sports team and so on. The list is endless.
