Cupcakes were a huge trend back in 2008-2009, their popularity soaring at the same time as a significant economic downturn hit America. For most people, treating themselves was no longer an option.
It was even more difficult for couples to minimize their costs and scale down during these times. As an affordable alternative, cupcakes were an excellent choice.
The couple didn't want elaborate, expensive cakes. Instead, it turned to cupcakes so that they could still make an impression with their unique flavors, adorable decorations, and accessories, such as designer baking cups. The economy has improved, many couples still choose cupcakes as their wedding cake.
