How Much Do Wedding Cupcakes Cost?

Wedding cupcakes can either be served with the wedding cake or can replace the wedding cake entirely.  Wedding tradition is constantly changing and this is just one of many aspects of a wedding that can vary.  Wedding cupcakes can look like a wedding cake since the cupcakes are usually placed on pedestals of different shapes and sizes as seen in the picture below.

There are several advantages when using wedding cupcakes compared to the traditional wedding cake.  For starters, there will be a variety of flavors that can be served since each one is made individually, and the second advantage is that there is no need to slice.  Guests will simply be able to go up to the table, grab one and walk back to their seats.

The costs of wedding cupcakes depend on the number of cupcakes needed, the bakery being used, the flavor, the decorating options and geographical location.
