People have the belief that cupcakes are better than cakes for several reasons, and there’s hardly any approach to restraint when a cupcake comes by. Cupcakes are a tiny blitz of cake joy that can bring smiles to people who consumed them because of their small shapes. These little treats are oftentimes compared with their bigger versions, cakes, though people go with cupcakes as being the better alternatives, others don’t. Expert bakers have agreed, from several surveys conducted, that the time imputed in making them is much less than that given to cakes. And this lesser timeframe has afforded more focus on making their results better than those of cakes.
Baking a cupcake in the oven would not exceed a maximum of 20 minutes, but a cake would take a doubling of that time, at least 45 minutes to make it ready. With less baking time granted by their small surfaces, ease of decoration and application of icing is much better than with their counterparts. Cakes are designed for bigger events like wedding parties, birthday parties, anniversary parties, so a special time is dedicated to preparing them. But a cupcake can be done in a little over an hour and made ready for an event that suddenly popped up which you need to prepare for. Serving a cupcake is classic, it can be served in both formal and informal settings. If you’re a cake lover, then you must be a mini-cake lover.
