Scrumptious Inspiration for Your Wedding Cupcakes

Though a full wedding cake is the traditional way to add a sweet touch to a wedding reception, there’s another tasty alternative: cupcakes. With wedding cupcakes, your guests get their very own expertly decorated cake. Plus, they’re portable so guests can even dance with a cupcake in hand.

Normally, wedding cake served to guests comes with a standard swath of frosting and little or no decoration. With a cupcake, they can get a fun design along with their cake.

A major bonus for cupcakes over a traditional wedding cake is the variety. You can choose from several types of cake and frosting so there’s something for everyone.

An alternative to the cupcake is the mini cake. While the same size as a cupcake, mini cakes don’t have the paper cup and are decorated just like a full cake. This is a more elegant way to have individual cakes for guests if you’re worried that cupcakes might seem too casual.

Of course, you could always have both cupcakes and mini cakes. The best of both worlds!

If you’re worried that you won’t be able to have a cake topper with cupcakes, don’t be. You can still stick a fun bride and groom in two cakes at the top of your cupcake tower.

Will you go for cupcakes for your wedding, or will you stick to a traditional cake design?
