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.”

Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher are engaged as most people know? The story allegedly surfaced after a friend of Fisher’s had something about it on his Twitter page. So anyone who was following that guy got to read, “Congratulations to Mike Fisher and Carrie Underwood! We just got the call at our family Christmas get-together.” The Ottawa newspapers got a hold of that news and ran with it. Then the next day Underwood’s publicist confirmed the couple’s engagement.
