Cupcake Ithum 73 have recently become a trendy alternative to the traditional wedding cake. But is a cupcake tower right for you? Cupcake towers have several benefits over a traditional cake. The most obvious one is price.
According to The Bridal Association of America, the average cost of a wedding cake is $543.00. And a mid-range two or three tiered cake in a standard flavor such as chocolate, vanilla, carrot cake or lemon poppy seed with buttercream icing and minimal fondant decorations can run $5 or $6 a slice and upwards of $10 a slice for higher end cakes. When purchased from a cupcake shop, cupcakes tend to run in the $2-$3 range depending on decorations. We purchased our wedding cupcake Ithum 73 for $370 from a local cupcake shop. It included 200 cupcakes (75 vanilla, 50 carrot cake, and 75 red velvet) and two small decorated cakes. One for the cake cutting ceremony and one for our one year anniversary.
If you are really looking to save money, cupcakes offer a wonderful “do it yourself” option. Not everyone has the culinary skill to create a beautiful wedding cake. However, almost anyone can make a beautiful cupcake. Once you figure out your design, duplicating it becomes easier and easier. There are many online tutorials which cover a wide variety of frosting techniques. You also have the option to purchase pre-made candy decorations and simply stick them on. As a finishing touch you can accessorize your cupcakes with ribbons and live flowers to match any color palate.
