I have to admit I am totally confused! The box says that it's like 150 calories per serving (pre-mix with other items) - so how does it become 1 point? Should I spread it out over more than 12 cupcake cups?

Crap I don't know how to multiple quote but Martha said the ones she made for only 12 cupcakes, she counted as 2 pts each. Maybe the 1 point recipe was for 24 cupcakes.

I only just figured out MQ-ing myself!

Maybe you guys are going to kill me for possibly ruining this recipe for you but I have to tell you I still don't see how it's only 1 point

...even if you make 24. According to the box the unprepared mix has 180 calories, 4 grams of fat and 1 gram of fiber. If you put that into the WW calculator that means that 1/12 of the box is 4 points. So if you make 24 cupcake then they would be 2 points (still pretty good though!). Sorry for being a foshizzle.bmpabout it! It's still great - cupcakes for only 2 points!

Could it be if the person calculated it, just calculating 1 serving and not that of the whole box?

 

I read on hungry girl that if you're making a recipe or using more than one serving of something, you're supposed to add up all of the calories, fat and fiber and then calculate the points, I think like the calculator on WW. Because the point value comes out different.

 

I haven't tried these yet.

That's possible but I didn't calculate the whole box - just the 1 serving size (which is according to the box 12th of the box). Maybe it just makes a lot of cupcakes! wink.gif

I think the food content on the side of the box might be if the cupcakes are prepared according to the instructions, ie with the eggs and the oil. The calculation of 1 point is not using any of those ingredients. I could be wrong.

    • Hi Patty, thank you so much for your reply. I will definitely check out each of these resorts and 5e attachments that you have provided.  Can you suggest a Canadian TA?
    • Congratulations Amanda and welcome to the forum! Absolutely use a travel agent. You will get the best rates & personalized for you and your guests. We can definitely give you resort suggestions & answer any questions you have, but your best bet for pricing will be to contact a Canadian TA. Canadian rates are different than the US market and are typically packaged with the air plus using a Canadian TA you and your guests can pay in CAD.   Karisma resorts are known for their "gourmet inclusive" food options.  Sensatori Punta Cana is a beautiful resort that opened a few years ago. They offers a sky terrace for weddings & reception. They are next to Nickelodeon Punta Cana and share many of the same restaurants. There is an awesome waterpark for kids that is available for a nominal fee.   In Punta Cana Now Onyx is a popular option & we have stayed there twice. The food is good and adults have the added bonus of being able to go to Breathless Punta Cana which is an adults only resort next door.  Now Onyx is in the process of adding a sky terrace for weddings with reception area attached.  Royalton Resorts are another great option. Royalton Bavaro in Punta Cana has a terrace overlooking the ocean and Royalton Riviera Cancun has an open air chapel overlooking the ocean. They are great family friendly resorts.  Resort info is attached for all of these options & we have stayed at or toured all of them as well. Please take a look and let me know what questions we can answer. Thanks!

    • The most recent post I found for Azul Fives brides is here -- although it hasn't been updated much:    You can also find a Cancun-Riviera Maya FB group hosted by this forum here, that will have various info you might find helpful! https://www.facebook.com/groups/CancunRMBrides/ Since you are considering Azul Fives for your wedding, I also encourage you to check out this promotion because it could save you a good amount of money on your wedding -- the only requirement is that you use Wright Travel, which is the official travel agency of the BDW forum! But their services are free, so it's a total bonus and will be a huge help as you plan your wedding celebration Hope that helps!!!  
    • Can’t seem to find the forum for Azul Fives with the last year? If someone could post the link that would be great!  I am just starting to loosely plan my wedding and this resort is on my top list. Thanks!
    • Hi there I’ve been engaged for a few months now and we beginning to talk about our wedding. We are 33 and 34 years old, We think we want it to be in Mexico or DR. We expect about 50 guests including children. We don’t want to get married or have our reception on the beach. My Fiancé is a chef so we also would like good food! We would also like to keep the cost under $1800 per guest flying from Nova Scotia, Canada.  Any suggestions as to how or where to start the planning process? Should we use a travel agent?  Any experienced brides that can suggest a resort ? Thank you! amanda
