Let Them Eat (Cup)Cakes! A Budget-Friendly Entertaining Staple

Over the past few years, cupcakes have become fashionable amongst the stylish set. Folks are serving them at dessert parties, birthday gatherings and, yes, even weddings! TBS highly recommends adopting this sweet treat as a staple in your entertaining arsenal. Not only are delightful cupcakes icebreakers, but they are budget friendly, too.

If you a DIYer, cupcakes allow you to tap into your creative self. Not too interested in icing and sprinkling? Phew, me either. Cupcake bakeries (or "cupcakeries") are cropping up on every corner. I can think of three or four here in Atlanta off the top of my head.

Tons of blogs have popped up on the horizon with ideas, reviews and locations of cupcakeries throughout the land.

Check out the following blogs/sites for inspiration:

  • Cupcake Project - recipes and cupcake baking theory (who'd have ever thought it?)

  • Cupcakes Take The Cake - I saw the authors of this blog on Martha and they have taken the love for cupcakes to a level that only those with a mean sweet tooth can comprehend

  • The Cupcake Activist - *marching* We want cupcakes! We want cupcakes!

How do you feel about the cupcake craze? Fad or here to stay?

Have you served them recently when entertaining?
