 By: Jade Reilly
Cupcakes are now getting popular in most wedding party, birthday and other special events. One major reason for this is the low cost involved in getting them for any special event you might think of. In most cases, wedding cakes cost hundreds or even thousands of dollars depending on the size, shape and the ingredients you want. With cupcakes, you can save a lot of money. Majority of very fancy cupcakes cost 2-4 pounds ($3-$7) while wedding cakes cost as must as 10 pounds ($17) a slice. One other advantage is that you can easily prepare them yourself because they are much simpler in comparison to wedding cakes.

In most cases, they are baked in muffin tins, pans which are usually made of metal, with or without non-stick surface with six or twelve cups. Cupcake muffin tins are also made of silicone rubber or stoneware and the standard size cup is about 76 mm (3 inches) in diameter, holding about 110 g (4 ounces). Specialty pans are also capable of providing them in different shapes and sizes.

Cupcakes are of different flavors, making them to match up with most birthday and wedding cakes. For instance, you can have chocolate with Italian meringue butter cream. The chocolate flavor of this cupcake is the favorite of many party lovers especially when paired with chocolate butter cream and chocolate ganache. Your birthday party is not complete until you have this type of cupcake, whether in a party for kids or adults. People always enjoy birthday parties with a large number of delicious and wonderfully decorated cupcakes covered in all frostings types. To even make yours unique, you can have them in many sizes and styles of cupcake stands. Cupcake stands are very good as they allow kids to take the cakes and they are also very simple to setup and place the cakes in.

Cupcakes are very good and children love them for school parties. Imagine how excited children are when parties are organized in the school. Cupcakes are the best for such events. The children will never forget that day. You can also travel and transport them easily. No need to fear that the whole thing can collapse like is always the case with usual cakes. Again, cupcakes are perfect for wedding ceremonies. In addition to the benefits already mentioned above, they also eliminate the need for additional forks and plates because you can make servings with napkins, making the whole process also very simple to carry out; no cake mess or slicing and you can also send home cupcakes in form of a favour.

Cupcakes come in different flavours. You can have cupcakes like velvety chocolate, delicate white cake, marble-cake, light lemony or a number of other flavors. Cupcakes also have good ingredients such as shredded carrots, applesauce or zucchini in order to make them moist. Eating cupcakes makes you feel very young and considering the number of frosting and flavors which have been created over the years, your appetite will always be met. Hence, you should always make every special event really special with good cupcakes.
