The Pros and Cons of Cupcakes Versus Cakes

The Pros and Cons of Cupcakes Versus Cakes

You are faced with the decision of whether to make cupcakes or a sheet cake. Which do you choose? Do you want my humble opinion before you decide?

The single pro of a sheet cake would be that it broadens your choices for decorating the cake. It is a great deal easier to "paint an edible picture" on a full cake rather than on cupcakes.
However, there are many pros in favor of cupcakes. Cupcakes are more simple to decorate and are a lot easier to transport than a full cake. They also help to prevent over-eating since they are each individually a serving size portion.

Sheet cake cons definitely outweigh the pros. They are more difficult and stressful to transport. One of the biggest cons with a sheet cake is that it makes it so easy for us to over-indulge and eat much more than our needed serving size of sugar. The only con I see with cupcakes is that, as I stated earlier, you are limited with decorating abilities. However, there are many different lovely decorating ideas out there for beautiful cupcakes.

Overall, unless you are dead set to have a sheet cake, I believe your smartest decision is to go with cupcakes. Easier for you and far more healthy for those who enjoy them!
