Cupcake Wedding CakeEverybody loves cupcakes!

A recent trend in wedding cakes is the cupcake wedding cake. Instead of a fancy, expensive multi-tiered wedding cakes, many couples are opting for cupcakes arranged in the shape of a cake. This is a much more affordable alternative to a traditional wedding cake.

Your guests, young and old, will enjoy the cupcakes at your reception. What’s fun is that you can get the cupcakes in a variety of flavors.

If you’d like, you can still have a smaller, separate one tier cake used to do the cake cutting ceremony.

What do you think about cupcake wedding cakes? Good idea, or just tacky?

    OOOO I like cupcakes! This is a cool idea, but I don’t know if I would have wanted that at our wedding. I like the traditional cake myself :)

    Great idea. Everyone loves a cupcake! My sister was w;ondering what she could do for her very informal wedding and I suggested this.

    I love the cup cake idea. I recently did the same thing for a child’s birthday party and it was a hit. I never thought about it for a wedding, but I’m going to run this by my fiancee to see what he thinks. Kudos for the great idea!

    I am really considering this idea… since the price of flour is sky rocketing, it may be a less pricey idea. I also like how some people are opting to have a small cake at the top… I assume for them to cut or either have to save.

    I am having the cupcake wedding cake at my wedding. My fiancee loves the idea. We are having a more informal wedding with lots of nontraditional elements. Also, it costs half the price, and you can make the tree and cupcakes just as pretty as a traditional cake. Plus, cupcakes mean no cutting of dozens of pieces of cake, and buying lots of silver ware! Everyone I have talked to loves the idea!

    I love the idea. I am going to have this at our wedding with the smaller cake on top for us to cut. My fiance calls me cupcake as a nickname so this is perfect for us.

    I recently attended a beautiful wedding at a posh hotel. Everything was very elegant. Gorgeous flowers and tablesettings. And the food was wonderful. Lobster stew, beef wellington, shrimp risotto, sushi, no expense was spared. And then… cupcakes! I think cupcakes are a great idea for casual weddings and for those on a budget, but they seemed a little out of place at the wedding I attended. Perhaps if they had an exotic filling or flavoring, but these were plain old vanilla, and tasted like they were purchased at the local grocery.
