Do the Bride a Favor examines the emerging trend of cupcakes and other mini desserts replacing the traditional tiered wedding cake.

The modern wedding offers many surprises, not the least of which are in the areas of sweets and desserts. From bulk vending nuts dispensed by machines to custom wedding candy served by an attendant at a portable cart, the options for confectionery wedding catering are more diverse than ever. Another emerging trend is cupcakes replacing the multi-layered wedding cake.

Following an article that appeared in WQOW.com, Do the Bride a Favor recommends thinking about replacing the wedding cake with cupcakes. A stand-out comment quoted in the story comes from a Wisconsin wedding catering manager who says fifty percent of her orders are now for cupcakes and other mini desserts as opposed to tiered layer cakes. Do the Bride a Favor lists several reasons wedding planners are making the switch to cupcakes.

First is the fact that cupcakes are easier to make. Secondly, for the budget-conscious wedding planner, there is also the fact that cupcakes are a less-expensive option than the multi-layered wedding cake. Thirdly, cupcake storage can be handled by Tupperware containers and without the worries of refrigeration, as is the case with a wedding cake which only stays fresh for about one night.

Additionally, more diversification is available with cupcakes offering a wide choice of flavors for guests as well as low-calorie options, and even sugarless cupcakes for diabetics in the wedding party. There is also less waste with cupcakes, and leftovers can be taken home by guests. Do the Bride a Favor is impressed with other comments from brides-to-be in the news article, one of whom said that having cupcakes at her wedding would be the one thing that would make her celebration stand out.

Do the Bride a Favor is impressed by the many reasons for choosing the cupcake option for one's wedding, and sees this new choice for wedding planners as an emerging trend.
