cup cakes instead of cake?

Recommended Posts

Ok, I have been researching the idea of doing cup cakes instead of cake, and having them put into individual cake boxes with our logo on the box with ribbon. Then they are going to be set as place cards on each plate and used as a wedding "favor".

Nothing i do is traditional if you can't already tell!

Do you think that this is a good idea?? I just figured out that they are getting wonderful OOT bags, and people are going to be partying anyway...then this way, they can take it back to their room and eat it when they want!

Now, I"m just trying to research cupcake ideas...

I found these cupcake boxes at michaels yesterday(they are actallly online as well) They are bright pink stripes.... with cupcake paper to match. Just trying to figure out if I should do "jumbo" size or will a professional standard size cupcake look look right.

Help!

I think the cupcakes are a great idea! I'm doing food as a favor too, but I'm making my own (beach themed chocolates and decorated wedding cake cookies). I'm all for the jumbo, but that's the sugar junkie in me speaking!!! :)

I think Kashmira and Glenda are planning on doing something similar.

I think the idea is great and you are killing three birds with one stone...great way to save money!!

Leigh, I think that's an excellent idea! Not everyone remembers to save room for dessert (even if it is wedding cake!), putting it in a small box is SUCH a neat idea. I might have to "borrow" that idea! The only thing is that if you have children at the wedding, they might dig in right away - not sure if thats something that might bother you (some ppl like things done in a certain order!). That's the only "downside" I can think of. Awesome idea!

Good idea! I like the idea of putting them in boxes.

 

We're doing a cupcake tower and a dessert bar.

 

We ordered 75 cupcakes (3 flavors), 50 mini cheesecakes, 40 lemon bars, and 6 dozen mexican wedding cookies.

We are also doing a cupcake tower and dessert bar. I ordered 100 cupcakes and am doing 4 different types (25 of each). Emeline at the Hilton has sourced them out for me for a very good rate ($4/cupcake? plus $135 for delivery and cake stand rental). Then we will also have tres leches cake and fruit cocktail and some sort of custard which comes with our buffet menu.

 

I like the idea of putting the cupcakes in boxes! But there are two things to consider:

 

1. The time it will take (on your wedding day since you want them to be fresh) to put them in the boxes. If you're not having a lot of people then this will be easy - but if you're having 50+ then it may "eat" up a lot of your day.

 

2. No "cutting" of the cake if you give these out ahead of time. Though now that I think about it you guys could always just cut one cupcake to be cute!

 

I am ALL about the cupcake idea! I love cupcakes but for some reason feel only neutral about regular cake... this seems to be a common thing in the people I know.

 

Will Dreams or the bakery box them for you if you send the boxes and ribbon ahead of time? That would be a lot of work off your back!

Thanks for all of your input! I haven't gotten as far as talking to the bakery or the WC yet....The resort seems pretty easy to work with, but I also have a few VERY good friends that would definately help out with boxing them if the resort or the bakery wont.(or if they want to charge an arm and a leg to doit!) Yeah, we are probably the un-traditional couple when it comes to this wedding! I just know that our party is much to playful to be eating cake after dinner!
I'm gonna try to mail the boxes to whom ever I decide to use for the cupcakes....I will let you know my final decision!
thanks again!

Has anyone researched any bakeries that do cupcakes? Maggie wants cupcakes instead of cake, but doesn't know where to go from here. Any suggestions?

    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
