Week after week we point out how obsessed we are with the wide world of cupcakes. There are plenty of reasons to love cupcakes. And surely we’re not the most obsessed cupcake fans because we haven’t gotten cupcake tattoos… yet. There are more extreme cases of cupcake obsession but we do consider ours slightly serious. These are only a few of the reasons that we’re crazy for cupcakes.
- Portion Control: cupcakes are smaller versions of cake therefore less calorie guilt.
- Teach Sharing: Making a batch of cupcakes basically ensures that sharing will happen.
- Decorations: Cupcakes have more opportunity for decorations and themes.
- Cupcake Wrappers: You can dress up a cupcake with shiny cupcake wrappers.
- Unique Flavors: Cupcake shops are more daring with flavors.
- Edible Favors: Two words, wedding cupcakes.
- Birthday Parties: Your son’s monsters theme party just got more creative
- Dessert Buffets: More variety at dessert bars.
- Portable: Cupcakes are great for kids’ lunches because they travel well in cupcake boxes.

If you’re still wondering why cupcakes, we might not be able to help you. These are all pretty solid reasons for why cupcakes are amazing. Cupcakes are great for parties and kids events because they’re small and easy to bring. Have you ever tried driving in the car with a cake in the front seat? More often than not the cake slides on the carrier and your frosting is completely smeared. And nothing ruins the surprise like trying to sneak the cake into the party and frost it in the kitchen while blocking anyone from seeing what you’re doing. Is it obvious we’ve done this before? We know what we’re talking about!
Cupcakes can be carried in a cupcake carrier and then frosted as an activity. If you don’t have time to frost them at home, simply set out different frosting flavors and let guests do their own. With a stack of cupcake wrappers in a variety of colors you can set the tone for a great cupcake decorating party. Don’t forget a fun cupcake stand to make the display a winner!
