Cupcake Stands For Weddings - The Latest Trend


A new concept which is gaining rapidly in popularity is to have decorated cupcakes instead of the traditional large cakes at weddings. For as long as anyone can remember wedding cakes have been large heavy fruit cakes covered in white icing and set out in tiers. However these traditional cakes now have a serious rival as an increasing number of couples are deciding to have a wedding cupcake stand instead.

The traditional white tiered wedding cake is undoubtedly beautiful and elegant and will always be very popular. However a display of smaller cakes on a wedding cupcake stand can also look amazing when properly done.
