Let them eat (cup)cake!
Living in New York City has made me vastly aware of the growing adoration for all things cupcake. Myself included, I am absolutely enamored! There are cupcakes in every corner of the city, and they seem to be popping up everywhere like clockwork. Nothing makes me happier than walking by Billy’s Cupcakes on 9th and 19th near my office and smelling the sweet sweet scent of freshly baked cupcakes. They decorate them in the big front window and it’s really magical to watch. I encourage everyone to take a trip. The cupcake fad is catching on for weddings, too. What’s more fun than a personal bite sized cake, baked and decorated to individual perfection?? It’s the perfect bite! 2010 is all about the details, and this is a trend that will definitely fit the bill; it’s as if they were made especially for everyone on the guest list.
Don’t fret about the top tier of your cake. Of course, you could just as well save the cupcakes for your first anniversary, or better yet, have a top tier made especially for that reason. There are even cake molds for giant cupcakes, which would really make a pretty arrangement!
grocery store-bought cupcakes, or if you are crafty (or better yet know someone who is crafty!) give homemade cupcakes a pretty touch! Not to mention
would help out with your budget. They even have wrappers to hang or pin to the cake stand. Be creative, use ribbons, flowers, beading. Fresh flowers
topped on a cupcake would make a very sweet summer decoration. You can go as simple or as decorative as you like.
