Wedding Cupcakes

For the past several years, the hottest wedding cake is the cute cupcake.  Although this time around, the cupcake is no longer humble. Instead, these individually portioned confections are topped with the sweetest frosting and bejewelled with hand-made decorations, making the cupcake less of a ho-hum traditional baked good and more of a diminutive copy of an ornamental celebration cake.

The original cupcake revolution took place in Europe in the late 18th century, with a rich cake recipe made from currants, lemon zest and almonds, baked as individual cakes. Traditionally, little fluted moulds in fancy shapes were used to house the cakes, with heart-shaped moulds the popular choice of the day. The name ‘cupcake' followed as the Americans took the individual portioned cake idea and developed a baking cup for the recipe.

Despite the centuries-old idea, cupcakes never really went out of favour. Any survey of western cookbooks reveals an interest in the cupcake as a perennial favourite for children's birthdays and school fêtes. However, the real second cupcake revolution started when Carrie and her friends in Sex & the City famously ate vanilla flavoured cupcakes from the now iconic Magnolia Bakery on Manhattan Island.

For your wedding, consider making dozens of traditional fruitcakes in cupcake moulds, topped with white fondant and sugar flowers in the colour theme of the event and wrapped in a stunning laser-cut cupcake wrapper. Tier the cupcakes on an old-fashioned ornamental cake stand and layer the blooms of the day between your cupcake creations.  Beautiful!
