Did I miss something? Cupcake cakes are bad?
No, they're not bad, but the popularity of cupcake cakes has all but died off. I used to make them fairly often when the craze was on, and general feedback was cupcake cakes were a lot messier for little kids to eat.
Which makes total sense when you think about it.
1. You have to ice the cupcakes to make them look like a certain solid shape. To do that, you have to use a lot of icing to hide the fact you're using cupcakes, not a solid slab of cake carved into that shape.
2. A lot of that icing ends up falling between the cracks where the cupcakes meet, as its impossible to get round cupcakes to fit snug together on all sides.
3. When its time to pull the cupcake cake apart to eat, instead of getting an indiviual iced cupcake, the kids get an iced cupcake with extra blobs of icing stuck to the sides of the liners, and in no time, stuck to their little hands.
Hence the cupcake cakes are messier to eat feedback.
