Cupcakes used to be the cake for kid’s parties and small in-house occasions. It has now become popular as a wedding cake. Till ‘90s cupcakes were not considered as an option to be presented in a wedding reception. Now the trend is showing a change and cupcake is being frequently used in wedding receptions.
Let’s find the reasons behind the acceptance and popularity of cupcakes in weddings.
Today most of the brides are paying a good deal of attention to their wedding budgets. The introduction of the cupcakes has become a nice option for keeping their budget in hand. Cost of making cupcakes is very less in comparison to traditional wedding cakes. With low budget options one can make incredible wedding with just a touch of finesse.
A traditional cake comes with only one design and has got very limited option for flavoring. It comes in one or two layers of icing where as a cupcake may not have any layers but can be decorated with various icing. Just try to imagine a tall tier being filled with hundreds of cupcakes. When it’s bought on the table before the guests in the hall it becomes a centre piece.
A traditional wedding cake needs to be cut and served to individual guests. Cutting huge wedding cakes sometimes even makes it difficult. A lot of it may even go to waste. However, a wedding cupcake can be served without cutting them. Each guest can have one cup without the cake even being cut. It is a quick and a smooth way of serving guests with the most important item of wedding.
These cakes are even easy to transport and arranging them at the wedding centre or hall is also a very quick process.
Everyone wants to arrange for an exceptional cake on their wedding. And with cupcakes on the trend in Australia, there has been a huge scope of showing creativity and artistic appeal through it. In fact, the innovating new designs and concepts are even attracting cake designers to follow the trend. Being a cake designer I love to see my cupcakes in Brisbane wedding ceremonies.
