A month ago, I wrote about considering having cupcakes at our wedding. I have always loved cupcakes, even before cupcake bakeries started popping up. I also thought it would be a way to please a variety of tastes. Marc's love of red velvet could be satisfied while I could stick to the classic yellow cake and chocolate frosting. My sister-in-law suggested that cupcakes might be a fairly messy dessert item and I sort of dropped the thought.
Sampling all the mini cupcakes last night had us thinking again. What about mini cupcakes? They could be eaten in one or two bites and people could try multiple flavors. I got to googling and found some pretty pictures of cupcakes at weddings...
I have to admit I love the iconic image of a bride and groom cutting a cake, though. I know some people order a one-tier cake to go with their cupcakes so they can have that photo, but it just doesn't seem like the same thing. I really like the traditional cake.
The one tier option is cute...
I find the simplicity of these small cakes particularly charming, too.
But the traditional cakes are so beautiful, aren't they?
At least I've taken one step forward since the last time this topic came up: I started collecting information about the local bakers. Cost wise, cupcakes are less costly and serving them would obviously be faster.
If you were a wedding guest, do you think you'd have a strong preference for cake over cupcakes?
Would you miss the cake if there were cupcakes served after the meal?
