A Sweet Battle: Cake vs. Cupcakes

Warning: You may not want to read this post if you are hungry.

I love wedding cakes. I love cupcakes. What’s a girl to do?

I love going to weddings and seeing the big fancy cake. I don’t know about you, but I (unfortunately) do not have a lot of occasions that require multi-tiered, perfectly piped, expertly crafted cakes. So really, the wedding is a fantastic opportunity to get my own fancy-pants cake. Mr. Cheetah and I even love shows like Cake Boss and Ace of Cakes. On the other hand, Mr. Cheetah and I really love cupcakes. We love trying all the cupcake places around L.A. (some faves are: Sprinkles, Frosted Cupcakery, Famous Cupcakes, SusieCakes), and cupcakes are one of my favorite items to bake. So a battle has begun for our wedding dessert: wedding cake vs. cupcakes.

Some cakes I love:

Here’s how the battle is breaking down:

Prettiness Factor: cake

Ease of Eating: cupcakes (you don’t need a plate and fork!)

Taste: tie

Price: cupcakes

Cupcakes are inching ahead. Since our dinner and dancing are in two separate (but connected) spaces, the “ease of eating” factor is huge for us. Dessert will be displayed near the dance floor, and it would be so easy for our guests to just grab a cupcake and return to boogying the night away. While a part of me is sad I don’t get to help design a glorious six-tiered cake, images like these make it all better:

I want to eat them all! Nomnomnomnom…

Would you prefer to eat cake or cupcakes as a wedding guest?
