During weddings, the slicing of the cake is a moment guests look forward to. It is camera-worthy and sweet, much like the big event. It calls for nothing less than a center piece that looks amazing: the cake.
Gigantic and icing-heavy used to be the trend for the wedding dessert. But nowadays, couples are going the non-traditional route and choosing equally delectable and colourful alternatives. One of them is the cupcake. What makes the bite-sized cake the perfect substitute for the traditional one?
They Are Just The Right Size
If you chance upon wedding cupcakes in Edmonton or elsewhere, you will understand what this means. You cannot possible stuff a huge slice of chiffon into your mouth without making a sticky and sugary mess.
With bite-sized variants, you will not have that problem. You can finish the whole piece with just a few bites and simply lick your lips to clean up after.
They Let You Have As Much (Or Little) As You Want
Are you a fan of cake, so much so that one flavour is not enough? If you are, then cupcakes are perfect for you. Because they come in full, separate pieces instead of thick layers, you can request different flavours for your reception.
They are also ideal for someone who is not a fan of sweets. Thick frostings and giant slices can be overwhelming, and a cupcake gives just enough of them to tickle your taste buds. If you are an avid calorie-watcher, the small portion makes it easier for you to keep track of your cheat day allowance.
They Look Fantastic
Cupcakes are easy to style, because they do not require a lot of work. They already look fantastic, and you just need pretty holders, wraps and trays to turn them into a visual treat. Arrange them according to colours and flavours, and watch them take centre stage in your guests’ Instagram snaps after your wedding.
They Are Versatile
Stack them and you get a pretty centre piece. Line them up and you get borders that complement other desserts and dishes on the tables. Cupcakes are easy to arrange, making them versatile decorations.
They Are Romantic
The couple having their taste of the cake is a notable wedding moment. Imagine making it more romantic by sharing cupcakes with heart frostings or chocolate letters, and letting your sweetheart wipe (or kiss) the icing off of your lips.
They Are Shareable
Bringing home a multi-layered cake should be the least of your post-wedding concerns, which makes cupcakes the right dessert for you. They are shareable, and they can double as adorable and tasty souvenirs. Make small cupcake boxes part of your party favours, so when the day comes, all you have to do is put the treats in and hand them out to your special guests.
Your guests will leave your event with full tummies and smiles, thanks to your memorable treat.
