A lot of things have changed and it only makes sense that we are in tune with these changes. Cassette tapes have disappeared and MP3's and IPod’s rule the music world. We can watch a 3-D movie in the comforts of our living room, and the power of ecommerce is at our fingertips, thus allowing us to practically buy anything we want without having to step outside our home. Now here’s one that literally takes the cakes. Cupcakes now have homes which are called cupcake trees and cupcake towers. Your humble cupcake has just become a notch better with specialized decorations, liners, bags, boxes and stands.

									            Evolution of Cupcake Wraps and decorations for cupcakes


I remember when I was younger, my grandmother would always have a cute little
cupcake waiting for me and she would lay out all of the decorations for cupcakes
and let me decorate them when I arrived. My family get-together almost always
ended up with white cupcakes, decked with lots of chocolate icing and sprinkles on
top, as desserts. Today, the cupcake has evolved from the usual white cake flavor to
the more elaborate forms, such as red velvet cupcakes, carrot cake cupcakes and
many, many more.

While the housing and the flavor of the cupcakes have improved over the years, so
have the accessories used in cupcake preparation and decoration-some new found,
and some improved. These cupcake accessories have made the cupcake more
interesting to cook and decorate.

Cupcake Wraps and Liners

Cupcake wraps and liners or round sheets of thin paper, such as parchment paper,
are used to provide a thin barrier between the cake and the cupcake pan. The job of
a cupcake liner is to keep the cupcakes moist and soft and also make it easier to
remove the cupcakes from the pan after they have finished cooking and cooling.

White paper used to be the main style of cupcake liner available. Eventually
manufacturers came out with plain colored cupcake liners that you could purchase
for events such as birthdays and anniversaries. A couple of years later, colorful
paper liners with designs that match your party theme were made available. If it's
Spiderman or Hello Kitty you want, finding the paper liner that fits your needs is no
longer a problem.

Not only have the cupcake liners evolved into works of art, the big trend is to now
wrap your cooked and decorated cupcake with cupcake wraps. Cupcake wraps are
the new chic in the cupcake industry. Cupcake wraps are easy to handle and can
make even the most novice bakers' cupcake look like a designer cupcake out of a
couture cupcake shop.

Cupcake Towers

Cupcakes used to be baked and placed on a platter or maybe even a cake plate for
display. They weren't displayed long in my house, as I remember as soon as they
were baked, they were eaten. There was no time for fancy decorations and
displays.

Nowadays, cupcakes are the centerpiece of the dessert table for many events. In
fact, the latest trend in weddings is cupcake wedding cakes. Cupcake trees and
cupcake towers are being used as wedding cupcake stands in order to display
hundreds of elegantly decorated cupcakes replacing the traditional wedding cake in
many weddings today. The guests of the party can even take their own cupcake
home with them in specially made cupcake containers.

Depending on how large the event may be, cupcake towers can have 3 to 7 tiers at
an average. Most of them can be easily taken down, washed and stored for future
use while others are disposable so the host doesn't have to worry about cleaning
the cupcake tower and storing after the party. The disposable towers are usually
cheaper than the reusable ones; however, if you plan on having several events
during the year, it would be beneficial to invest in a little higher priced, reusable
tower that would really save you money in the long run.

Conclusion:

Cupcakes have always held a place in my heart and remind me of the simple things
in life I enjoy. With that said, cupcake accessories available on the market, make
simple things, a little more enjoyable.
