Sweet tooth or no sweet tooth; when a cupcake comes by, restraint is hardly a conventional approach. They are the little wonders of joy capable of bringing smiles on everyone’s faces. These sweet treats are often dragged into comparison with cakes, and though a majority would indisputably agree that cupcakes are actually better than cakes, there’s still discussion involved.
So let’s settle this once and for all with these five reasons.
- Time Involved
Let’s begin with the basics. Cupcakes are much less hassle to bake than cakes. They take an approximate time of about 15-20 minutes to bake compared to 35-40 minutes for a cake. With a smaller surface area, cupcakes are additionally easier to decorate. Also, the quicker to bake, the earlier you get to savour it.
- Efforts Involved
Cupcakes require lesser ingredients to bake than cake; in fact, a simple concoction of all-purpose flour, butter, a pinch of baking powder and sugar can do the deal. This doesn’t just help you save on money and apparatus but also saves extra efforts. Moreover, they create much less mess.
- A Friendly Size
Cupcakes are realistically sized which makes them very easy to distribute in portions (just pick one up on the go) and also makes transportation quite convenient. Apart from this, you get to excuse yourself from cake cutting. Simply blow a candle (or just don’t) and gulp it whole.
- A Healthier Alternative
For people who crave sweets every time they eat something, cupcakes are a blessing in disguise. A heaven-made match for diet conscious people, cupcakes have an average calorie and fat count of 105 and 4 gms respectively, compared to the 245 calories and 14 gms of one cake serving. They are quite literally, the healthier option.
- The Element of Surprise
Cupcakes are highly instrumental when it comes to surprises. Owing to their small size, you can experiment with different flavors and filling without a considerable commitment. You can even add your or your loved one’s favourite fillings and include a cute message for them in the centre.
Cupcakes and cakes are elite heavenly sweets, and though one is better than the other, both are delivered with equal love to your doorstep in the UAE. So the next time you have confusion, simply go to Ferns N Petals and order some of both cakes and cupcakes in Dubai online and tell for yourself.
