    I adore cupcakes! In fact, they are my favorite dessert. Frequently I get cupcake cravings at night and have to go to one of the local bakeries here and get them!

    I was also totally set for getting cupcakes for my wedding ... BUT when I asked the hotel how much it would be, they said it would be MORE expensive than the cake!!!! I was in disbelief. I tried to negotiate them down but no luck. (I don't even remember the number now, it was so long ago.) But I was really disappointed and am just going ot have a regular cake b/c it's cheaper.

      Further to the above suggestion, I've had cakes from Costco before and they're sooo good and VERY reasonably priced! So that may definately be something to consider!
      has anyone been to the Costco in Cabo to see if they have cupcakes... I wonder if they do. I'm sure they would be reasonably priced and it sounds like they would be pretty delicious too!

      kashmira,

      have you thought of having a small cake just for symbolic reasons to make your dad happy...so you can cut it and do whatever but then give out cupcakes to guests...

        I think we're doing cupcakes, as well as petit fours, and mini cheesecakes.

        Jennifer Hatton quoted me $3 each for the cupcakes, and $4 each for the cheesecakes.

          $3 a cupcake seems very reasonable! If you have a chance could you send me her contact info? You can post it here, send me a private message or send it to my username at hotmail dot com. That would be wonderful!

            i love cupcakes too...before the wedding i was "dieting" and working out like a maniac..BUT not losing any weight...i started fraking out at my trainer about how i was always starving but not losing any weight so he had me write down everything i was eating...

            i would complain to my hubby as well...when steve saw the list he totally started laughing....he said i ate dessert with everymeal thats why i wasnt losing any weight. he also told me he found the chocolate cupcake wrappers in the car...he totally busted me...this bakery near my work has the yummiest black tie cupcakes...chocolate w/ cream cheese frosting...yummy....

              no problem. Here is her website. She does respond to emails, but give her a few days:

                I love the idea Kashmira! And the example posted is beautiful with the tray & the flower embelishment.

                You are totally right - nobody ever eats the cake at weddings! I'll admit I only ever have a bite just to be polite :)

                  Here is the list of petit fours that Jennifer Hatton sent to me:

                  *lemon squares
                  *Chocolate bomb brownie squares
                  *cheesecake bites
                  *chocolate encased strawberries
                  *Profiterolls filled with most any flavour

                  I am not sure of the price per piece, but presume it's somewhere between $2-$4 per piece.
