In lieu of the traditional multi-layered wedding cake more and more couples are looking at an exciting alternative. On back-to-back receptions that I DJed in November the traditional wedding cake was replaced with colorful assortments of cupcakes. Its a nice change of pace and offers variety to the guests. I have not investigated the cost so I don't know if it's cheaper, the same or more expensive than regular wedding cake. The nice thing is that the trend doesn't have to take away any business from wedding cake makers because cupcakes is more than likely already part of their business.
