Part 2 Cupcakes

Cupcakes are often less expensive than a wedding cake. They can be bought in volume and range from two to four dollars per serving, whereas cakes by comparison range from five to twelve dollars per serving.  Cakes also often require a cutting fee charged by catering companies, so if you are on a tight budget you will get more for your dollar by choosing cupcakes.
