Does anyone know where I could find any statistics relating to cupcake weddings? I'm specifically looking for how many couples are currently choosing to have cupcakes for their wedding, instead of a traditional wedding cake (a percentage). If it helps to be more specific, I'm particularly interested in finding this out for Minnesota. I'm working on my business plan, but I'm not having much luck in this one area.

Thanks in advance,
Angie

I am located in NE Ohio. I currently have 11 weddings booked for 2011, 7 are wedding cakes and 4 are cupcakes.

I wouldn't know about any organization that would maintain 'official' statistics, but you can survey wedding planners, caterers, and venues/facilities in the area to see what they have observed in the past year and inquire through The Knot or any regional Bride magazine if they see trending. HTH

Another Angie here...I average about 1/3 of my clients ordering cupcake towers instead of a wedding cake.

Are they saving money by ordering cupcake towers instead of a basic wedding cake?

Thanks for the replies!

So... based on the small informal survey here, it sounds like roughly 1/3 of booked weddings for 2011 are cupcake weddings...

I think I'm going to start a poll to see if anyone else wants to share their ratios of regular vs. cupcake weddings that they have booked for 2011, I'd love to hear!

Right now, I have 18 weddings booked for 2011. All but 3 of them are for cupcake weddings, but cupcake weddings are my specialty.
