They are a great alternative for a wedding cake because they normally cost a bit less and you can skip the cake cutting fee all together.
Also, you will be able to provide more flavors to your guests as cupcakes can come in a variety of flavors, and you are not held down by the number of tiers you have. By having wedding cupcakes in different flavors, your guests are sure to find a flavor that they will like.
So what's your favorite flavor? Mine is probably chocolate but I also LOVE carrot cake with cream cheese icing. YUM !!!
