We’ve been noticing a trend in weddings. Many couples are preferring wedding cupcakes over traditional cakes. Trends that take the (Cup)Cake. Go beyond the plain chocolate or vanilla — you’re marrying on a tropical island so perhaps the more exotic your wedding cupcakes, the better! Think Key Lime with Graham Cracker topping, Coconut Creme, Orange Sunrise, Vanilla-Rum, Margarita spiked with Tequila, Ginger with candied ginger on top, or Pina Colada! Cupcakes allow you to get creative. Consider colored cupcakes incorporating your wedding color scheme.
Wedding cupcakes are remarkably versatile and you can customize them to fit your needs perfectly. Some choose to top their wedding cupcake stand with a small ‘cutting cake’ so that the couple can be photographed doing the traditional cake cutting ceremony. Other couples use two cupcakes and peel the wrapper off one cupcake together and then feed each other a bite from the same cupcake– that is something unique and romantic that you can’t do with a wedding cake!

“Wedding Cupcakes are in vogue at the moment, as are coloured cakes.” Martha Stewart officially declared wedding cupcakes a popular and suitable choice for today’s brides.
Did you know Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher (of the NHL’s Ottawa Senators) opted for wedding cupcakes instead of a wedding cake? “We’re kind of doing cupcakes,” the country star tells CMT Radio Live’s Cody Alan. “I consider myself a very traditional person. More than anything, we’re going to get married, that’s the important part. And we want everyone to have a good time, so we’re doing some things like that, that are a little bit different.”
Congratulations Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher!
