Cupcakes have really taken off as reception fare. Just last week Essence.com had a great article about actress Essence Atkins (of the TV show Half & Half) who tied the knot in a beautiful ceremony and had yummy red velvet cupcakes for her guests. Those cupcakes were made by Southern Girl Desserts in Los Angeles, which is owned by Catarah Hampshire. When we first posted about them last year, some brides-to-be and their families were iffy on having cupcakes in place of the traditional wedding cake. But now they're popping up everywhere - and guests seem to love them. Just one more option for the ultra-creative ladies out there who feel the need to shake things up.
