Wedding Cakes – Square or Round?

Square or Round….which do you prefer? Hands down, round wedding cakes are by far the most popular choice for couples today.  But what about a square wedding cake?  Square wedding cakes have gained in popularity over the last few years.

3 Advantages to a Cupcake Tower Wedding Cake

Planning a wedding means making endless decisions – bridesmaids dresses, table settings, suit hire, flowers and the wedding cake!

Cupcakes are easy to serve. Have a friend or family member serve the cupcakes, or even have the guests serve themselves. Some reception venues charge extra for cutting and serving a wedding cake, with a cupcake tower this extra expense can be avoided. A cost saving for your budget and stress-free cake serving.  2. Cupcakes are easier to transport. Most traditional wedding cakes have many different layers that are boxed separately and then put together at the wedding reception by the cake designer.  Cupcakes however, are generally boxed side by side and the boxes are full, leaving little room for the cupcakes to slide and get ruined. This has the advantage of saving you money by collecting the cupcakes yourself or a friend and assembling the tower at the reception with minimal fuss. 3. The final advantage of a cupcake tower is – the individual serving.Atacand onlineEach guest is served a beautifully decorated piece of cake that can be consumed at the venue as part of the dessert or packaged up in boxes and taken home.
