Colorful, Creative Cupcakes: A Wedding Cake Alternative For Today’s Modern Bride
WARNING: The following post may contain images not suitable for brides looking to trim down and tone up. If your will power level is low today, I suggest you turn back now.
In all seriousness though, I’d be lying if I said my mouth didn’t go into operation water overload while viewing picture after picture of these delectable wedding day treats. I blame Martha Stewart Weddings mostly. In their most recent summer issue, there is an article appropriately titled, “Let them eat Cupcakes,” which reveals how these extra ooey gooey delights can make a divine substitute for a wedding day favorite.
While cake is the traditional standby most newlyweds (and all their guests) look forward to devouring, cupcakes are proving to be just as tasty and beautiful as their more popular counterparts. They can be dipped, dolloped, shellacked, sprinkled and stacked any way a bride sees fit. Whether you’re going for over the top or under the radar, cupcakes can give an ahhh to the mazing presentation at any wedding reception celebration. The proof is in the pudding, people!
Since each cupcake is its own individual part, a bride isn’t limited by flavor or design. You can easily provide a smorgasbord of vanilla, chocolate, caramel swirl, strawberry surprise and every taste in between without worry. It’s really up to you. I’ve seen everything from cupcake towers that could humble even the most ornate cakes to customized creations that are as simple as they are sweet.
Already cut and all ready to serve, wedding cupcakes also make a great do-it-yourself project for the more hands on bride. Not to mention, a their “awwwww” factor is off the charts! I mean, who doesn’t love a mini version of anything? And although they may be miniature in size, they are still powerful in taste, making these one-of-kind mini cakes a catchy trend in 2009.
