Wedding Cake Trends: The Cupcake

Apr 23 2007 - 3:14pm

When my friend found out that I was going to be covering wedding cakes [1] this week, she immediately asked for help in finding a fantastic cupcake wedding [2] cake. A few years ago I might have had a difficult time finding a bakery willing to do this, but these days it's a snap. Cupcakes [3] have become so popular — what's not to love about a precious mini cake?! — that most bakeries will be able to present it as an option.


The cupcake wedding cake is usually in lieu of a regular wedding cake, however sometimes a traditional cake is used for photos and the cupcakes are used for serving. In a true cupcake wedding cake, there's usually at least one cake tier (or separate cake) that is used for the bride & groom to slice through. Also, a cupcake wedding cake is usually a cheaper option than a traditional cake, and since there are so many little cakes, you can actually have a lot of different flavors!

These cakes came from (left to right) Beautiful Cakes and Bridals [4] (based in Rochester [5], MN), Butterfly Cakes [6] (outside of San Francisco, CA) and the famous Cupcake Royale [7] (in Seattle).

Got any pictures of great cupcake cakes (or wedding cakes)? Share them in the Savory Sights [8] group!
