The Tastiest Rivalry: Wedding Cake VS Cupcakes


Just like you, we have a hard time deciding what type of cake we want at our weddings! Do we go traditional and buy a beautifully piped wedding cake or do we go with the latest trend with multiple cupcake flavors? Let’s discuss both options!

Wedding Cakes:

How many times in your life are you able to design a beautifully crafted, perfectly piped wedding cake? Wedding cakes are gorgeous and designed exactly to your specific liking! Have you ever watched Cake Boss or Ace of Cakes and thought to yourself how fun it would be to talk to the baker about your love story and for them to design your perfect cake? Let’s look at a few cakes from local bakers that we at Pats Peak love!

We all have had cupcake fever these past few years and we see the newest most delicious cupcake flavors on Pinterest and Cupcake Wars. Cupcakes are easy to eat, delicious, mix and match capable wedding desserts. They are also a much more affordable dessert option so you don’t have to go over your budget! You are able to have multiple flavors that allow your guest to find a flavor they love while you and your sweetheart can enjoy your favorite flavors! Let’s look at some awesome local cupcake bakers we love!
