Cupcake Wedding Cakes Suit Everyone
Cupcake Wedding Cakes Can Suit Everyone
Cupcake wedding cakes are a great solution to the age old problem of different people liking different things, and having to deal with specific dietary requirements.
Getting married is stressful. There are venues to sort, dresses to find, honeymoons to book ~ you seem to spend your whole time trying to please everyone ~ and that's before you get anywhere need the catering ~ and the cake.
It's rare these days to have an event where there are no special dietary needs to cater for, generally you'll be faced with anything from gluten or lactose intolerance, allergies to various ingredients ~ not to mention the move these days away from the traditional fruit wedding cake.
Cupcake wedding cakes please everyone. They mean no-one feels left out and unable to have cake on the big day as they can cater for all dietary needs and flavour requirements.
Cupcake Wedding Cakes Are an Elegant Centrepiece
Just like a traditional wedding cake, cupcake wedding cakes can range from the simple to the highly decorated. Anything goes from single swirls of coloured buttercream to handmade sugar roses, all colour co-ordinated to the wedding colour scheme.
If you fancy something a little more quirky the cupcakes can be personalised with details such as initials, or little sugar models depicting the hobbies and interests of the bride and groom. Box the cupcakes individually and they make lovely take home presents for your guests.
Cupcake Wedding Cakes ~ Prices
Of course if you're really looking to keep the cost of your wedding down then this is something you could attempt yourself, or ask your friends to do, though it's worth saying that as with a lot of things decorating cupcakes is not necessarily as easy as it looks, so if the look of your wedding cake is important to you it may be better to get them done professionally.
Prices for cupcake wedding cakes vary dramatically - and are usually done on a per cake order. The price will be governed by factors such as ingredients i.e. specialist cupcakes such as gluten free generally cost more, as do ones using organic ingredients.
Beyond this the main factor which affects the price is decoration. If you want handmade sugar roses on your wedding cupcakes these will cost more than simple sprinkle decorations. If you're having something completely bespoke then this can also push up the price.
In the UK prices range from around £1.80 - £4.00 per cake depending on the area and the above factors so if you're having a large wedding it's not necessarily a cheap option.
It's also worth considering having a top cake for your cupcake tower. It doesn't need to be large but does give you something to cut for those all important photos.
