When it comes to planning birthday parties, there are so many decisions to be made. The last thing that you want to be debating on the bog day is whether you should be baking cupcakes or sticking to an old fashioned cake. While there are people who will tell you that it is only right,if you do it a certain way. The truth is that you need to weigh the pros and cons and decide what is best for you.
The first reason that many people choose to go the baking cupcakes route for birthday parties is the ease at which you can serve them. There is no worrying about who is going to cut the cake or making sure that all of the cake gets onto the plate with the icing still in tact. All your guests have to do is to pick up their own baked good and be on with the partying.
Do you have picky eaters in your family? Who doesn’t. It can be difficult to cover everyone likes and dislikes when you are serving one sheet of cake. However, when baking cupcakes it is easy to do different flavors. You can do one batch of chocolate and perhaps another batch of cupcakes in red velvet. This way, you can make sure that there is something at the Birthday party that everyone will enjoy.
There is much less cleanup when you choose to serve cupcakes. You do not have to worry about the knife to cut or the forks for your party guests to eat with. This is one of the easiest food items that you will have ever served.
Who has not had almost an entire birthday cake leftover after parties? When you are baking cupcakes, it is easier to control how much you make compared to how many people are attending. It is also much easier to send some home with people when it is cupcakes.
The one con that can be seen when you are thinking about baking cupcakes for birthday parties, is that it is not traditional. Many people expect a large sheet cake that has a large decoration on it to be brought out when everyone is singing.
There is really no good reason to not try baking cupcakes for your next birthday party. You can whip up a batch of your favorite flavor and be all set to go in no time flat. Cupcakes are truly one of the best party foods out there.
