The wedding cupcake craze took America by storm over a decade ago. As a commercial bakery, we at Baker Maid try to keep an eye on trends and thought for sure that it would be a firework display–a meteoric rise and a quick fizzle. However, looking back, cupcakes have always had a great practicality. No cake cutting fee, they’re easy for guests to take home, and they’re simply adorable. It seems that only now are couples finally tired of the icing heavy cupcakes that sit idly by while guests find easier to eat alternatives. Perhaps they’re over the same old-same old and want something that looks both fresh and classic.

Enter Baker Maid’s Petit Four.

The petit four has long been held as an upscale dessert reserved for large events and special occasions. With its smooth edges and clean exterior, this little dessert is a clear wedding cake alternative and cupcake contemporary. It’s easy to eat and has just enough icing to satisfy the palate. So whether your wedding is a low key affair or downtown chic, here are some great inspiration shots for your big day’s potential petit four display. If you’re ready to say “I do” to petit fours at your wedding, find Baker Maid Products at a supermarket near you.
