It seems that nowadays people are stepping out boundaries and leave out traditional views upon wedding. This is very true considering we see the craziest wedding ideas, unconventional couples choosing distinctive wedding themes and even wedding cakes that have different shapes and with weird icings. Perhaps you also attended such a wedding and as it is special, it remains in everyone’s minds and gets discussed each time. But if you are not that unconventional and just prefer a different kind of wedding cake, you can choose instead a cupcake wedding cake.
Using cupcakes is an alternative to the traditional cake and it is also great for the budget. Even the most novice baker can handle such an idea, so you don’t need to find a cake artist to design that fancy wedding cake that costs a fortune. Also, cupcakes can be baked and frozen ahead time and you can be creative and arrange cupcakes however you want. More than that, the frosting can be of any color, so you can design a rainbow-like wedding cake or match the dresses and the decorations of the reception with the cupcake wedding cake.
A cupcake tower is a great way to display the cupcakes at the wedding, just decide upon the flavors and the decorations and then set them up just like the traditional tier wedding cake. You can place the cupcakes on tiered platters and for a more elegant look, you can go for the cascading platter. Consider a more bizarre décor for the cupcakes. For instance, decorate them with the images of the mascot or select a theme. Let’s say you are crazy about camping, so you can decorate the cupcakes in green icing with mini tents on top. If you are fans of music, you can make the tops of the cupcake to resemble vinyl records.
Moreover, you can also frost cupcakes and pipe letters. Spell a message that is special for you and your spouse and monogram the cupcakes with your initials. This is a great idea and it shows how much you care for tiny details that make everything matter. Despite their small size, cupcakes can be dresses up to resemble wedding cakes. You can decorate them using flowers made out of sugar or edible balls. Fondant is best suited to ice the cakes and cut out shapes of hearts, stars, and flowers, anything you prefer. Making a cupcake wedding cake is a great alternative.
