’A cake is a piece of art which a cupcake could never be ’, this comment challengingly cropped up in a blog the other day. Is that really so? Art ’s boundaries are nicely democratic and so, are subject to individual definition. It can be argued that a cupcake can easily be as much of an art as any cake. True enough. If you are a decorator worth your salt, the chances are, you might one day create a cupcake, that is 10 times ’artier ’ than the guy next door ’s cake. In practice, though, I surprise myself in agreeing with the above sweeping generalisation after all. Cake is bigger, so one can get more detailed with it, make more of a story out of it. Besides, there ’s only one cake as opposed to 100 + cupcakes. In theory, it is possible to make them into hundreds of mini wedding cakes. But in practice they ’ll be less ’edible ’ and quite unaffordable. That said, if you do want to take your cupcake order beyond the commercial level, and are prepared to pay extra, it ’s worth mentioning it to a stylish cupcake maker and they might just surprise you!
Until the turn of the 20th century, cupcake pans were virtually unheard of forcing bakers to use more formidable cups for baking, unless they wanted to bake their small cakes into loaf form. Using hearth ovens, which needed longer cooking times for larger cakes, caused bakers to seek other ways to bake their cake and still have time to eat it. With the advent of the cupcake, not only were bakers able to achieve shorter cooking times, they were also able to change the way they prepared them once the baking part was finished. No longer did bakers need to create larger, heavier cakes. With the production of the cupcake, people could slake their desire for something small and sweet.
With the revamp of cupcakes in recent years, this question is certainly not the last one to consider. While some Brides ’ and Grooms seem to ’just know ’ what they ’d rather, for others it ’s something to mull over. It seems that the main factors to consider here, is the style of your wedding, the price, and the convenience. For example, If you decide to have a traditional wedding with "castle and princess" like the choice of the venue, as opposed to an event in one of the hip & cosy little clubs somewhere in Soho, you will, of course, be choosing cake vs. cupcakes, - a ’no brainer;,- right? Well, not necessarily. We often get orders for very traditional, in their structure weddings cakes, alas they don ’t tend to be orders for swirly cupcakes. A tower of fondant finish cupcakes with a topper cake [done well] will look very traditional indeed and at the same time offering a modern touch and convenience which a cake might not.
