Cupcakes Or Full Cake: What’s Best For My Wedding?
So, you’re planning your wedding. Congratulations! But you’re not sure whether a full cake or cupcakes are the way to go. What are the pros and cons of each option? What should you think about when choosing between cupcakes or a full-size wedding cake?
Wedding Cake – Traditional But More Costly
The biggest benefit of a traditional wedding cake is that it’s truly a spectacular centerpiece. A beautifully decorated cake may help your day feel more special, and it’s considered traditional to have a full-sized wedding cake. Naturally, though, full-sized cakes will be expensive, as they are heavy, large, and time-consuming to make.
Cupcakes – More Variety, Less Expensive
Cupcakes may not be traditional, but they are typically less expensive, and they’re much easier to handle, move, and store compared to a full-sized wedding cake. You can also have multiple flavors made and different sizes which adds more variety.
Another benefit is that cupcakes are ideal for guests with dietary restrictions – such as vegetarian, vegan, or gluten-free guests, or those with food allergies. And with the proper display stand, cupcakes can look stunning, too!
Why Not Both? Cupcakes And Wedding Cakes
Many people today are choosing to have a smaller, traditional wedding cake made, as well as cupcakes. This is a great way to get the best of both worlds, and have a traditional wedding cake, as well as multiple flavors of cupcakes.
