Have you been to an event recently and been surprised that instead of a regular cake, you were treated to an elaborate cupcake display? Cupcakes seem to be all the rage nowadays. Cupcakes seem to be the trendy thing to serve at any gathering, from baby showers to weddings, or birthday galas to Super Bowl parties. Cupcakes are easy to eat, full of delicious flavor and exciting eye-catching delights. It seems everyone loves those sweet little concoctions. But, are they really just cute little miniature cakes, or are they a wonderfully flavorful dessert deserving their own title?
Cupcakes can be served as a dessert for an everyday supper, at birthday or special occasion parties, or today can even replace the traditional wedding cake. They are great at baby showers, as Halloween treat give-aways, for Christmas buffet tables, or as a sure money-maker at bake sales and church bazaars. Cupcakes can even be served at masculine events, or at a sports party-like the Superbowl! And, what can be sweeter than a cupcake as an individual Valentine's Day love offering?
This brings us to one final question. Which of the two is cheaper? Unfortunately, there is no easy answer to this. Here are a few variables to take into account when figuring up the cost for either. How many servings do you need? What does your baker/caterer charge per cupcake? What do they charge per slice of cake? Do they charge more for a variety of flavors? How do you want your guests to be served? How do you want to display your cake or cupcakes? Can you rent a cake or cupcake stand? Would it be more cost affective to purchase a cake or cupcake stand? In general, the opinion seems to be that cupcakes are cheaper!
Now, we come to cupcake stands and cupcake wraps. The two things should be selected so that they go with each other. For instance, you can use brown colored wraps on a white cupcake stand. It will add a classy touch to your dessert stall. The most important thing to consider while buying cupcake stand is the type of material. The cupcake stands come in a variety of materials like acrylic, glass, plastic, metallic and cardboard. You have to choose according to your needs and requirements. For instance, if you want a one-time-use stand, you should buy a cardboard stand; they come really cheap and you can dispose them off after one usage. If you want a durable stand that you can use for a longer time, acrylic or metallic stand would be a better choice, but as these stands come quite inexpensive, budget can be an issue. In this case, you may prefer to buy a simple stand and use some DIY techniques to decorate it on your own. For instance, you may use laces or florist tapes to give it vibrant look.
In checking whether cupcakes are already done, you can use a toothpick. Prior to baking, preheat the oven for about 15 to 20 minutes. You have to check the cupcakes from time to time to avoid over baking.
