Are wedding cupcakes the new trend instead of cakes?

In general I’ve been noticing a trend in weddings.  People are preferring simple wedding cupcakes over traditional cakes it seems.  I was just reading about Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher (of the NHL’s Ottawa Senators) over at msnbc.

“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.”

Underwood plans on keeping the marriage very private.  “Not to say even anybody would care to show up, but just in case,” Underwood told the AP. “Like anybody, you deserve to get married and have a great day as people. I’m not going to be Carrie Underwood the entertainer walking down the aisle. I’m just Carrie, and I’m going to marry Mike. I feel like that’s kind of a right everybody deserves to have.”

Underwood is ordering the cupcakes from IveyCake at 100 4th Ave N, Franklin, TN 37064, which is run by Ivey Childers — the wife of Underwood’s bass player, Mark Childers. Ivey “makes the most amazing cupcakes in the universe,” Underwood says.  Ironically the website went down for the duration of the day after so many people overwhemled the server.  I’m sure Ivey Childres will more than happt to upgrade her website hosting plan after this.

Something to remember about cupcakes: Y ou can do cupcakes more inexpensively than you can buy a wedding cake, but in the end being memorable is a valuable commodity. And it’s cheaper to have an unforgetable wedding cake than to decorate each little cupcake.

What do you think is better at the reception?  Cupcakes or traditional wedding cakes?

  1. I think cupcakes are becoming more popular. There are many pros to cupcakes. The top one that comes to mind is you don’t have to cut and serve the cake and cupcakes are the perfect size for kids or for guests to take their cupcake home if they would like.
