Hmmm, everybody loves cupcakes! I am excited for today’s post because it is a two in one post. Read on to find out why… Cupcakes are the bridal trend of 2010 and 2011 – wedding cakes are being replaced by cupcakes and for plenty of good reasons.
Cupcakes are an affordable alternative to wedding cakes and are much easier to serve. It’s just so much fun to unwrap a cupcake surprise, and sets a “fun and casual” mood to the reception or ceremony. You can also do away with the cost of the cake cutting fee.
Wedding cakes have been a tradition for more than 100 years and it can get boring. You don’t have to stick to a tradition you don’t believe in. Serve cupcakes for a change and add a whimsical touch to your wedding.
As for the presentation, cupcakes can be decorated and displayed to look as elegant and grand as a wedding cake. All of the cupcake arrangements and decorations in the inspiration board above look really impressive. The best thing about cupcakes is that they come in various colors and flavors, so you can personalized it with multiple colors and also satisfy the different tastes and preference of your guests.
