      no, I have not. I figure it's pretty hard to screw up cupcakes. I have seen her site - she seems to do a pretty good job.

        I agree - plus just for reasons of competition you have to assume she should be pretty good! I mean she is basically competing with all the major reosrts etc. I'm defintely going to email her - seeing those cupcakes makes me even more deterined to go this way! Plus it just seems a lot more FUN!

          I found these pictures online of other people "cupcake" cakes! This first one is obviously VERY extravagant and I guess more expensive than a regular cake but it sure is cool.

          This version is simple but still lovely! Yum!

            Hey ladies,

            Tammy, maybe you can help me out here, but I seem to recall on of our brides having a horrendous experience w/Jeniffer Hatton. I'm thinking it was April who had a really crappy cake from her. She's also let a few girls down in terms of mis-communications. Definitely read thru the old site before you commit to her as your cake/cupcake vendor.

            Not trying to burst any bubbles, but I'd hate for any of you girls to have a bad experience.

              The Hilton charges either 10/pp or a 3/pp "cutting fee" if you bring your cake in from outside... so with let's say 50 people that's a $500 cake! So this brings me to my next point - cupcakes.

              A) Do you think if we served individual serving/ wrapped (therefore no plates or forks needed) cupcakes I could talk the Hilton into waiving the $3/pp "cutting fee." At this point there would be nothing to cut and they couldn't even say that we would need their plates and service...

              B) I just like the idea of cupcakes - a friend even said that you can buy these tiered cupcake trays to put them together in the shape of a cake!

              So on that note, any recommendations for bakeries? I wonder if cupcakes would be more or less expensive. I feel like then should be less... I mean who's ever heard of a $10 cupcake!?! Even here is Los Angeles that's outrageous!
              I love the idea of cupcakes. I don't mean to burst your bubble, but have you talked to Emeline about this? I can't find the e-mail right now, but I know I asked her if I could bring in an outside cake and she told me no because the Hilton didn't want to be responsible for people getting sick, etc.

                I read the same thing, there was even pictures posted of the cake she did.. I would be SO mad if that was my cake.

                  Thanks for the head's up. I don't want anything elaborate or complicated. Seriously, just plain old cupcakes (with good flavors, of course) but I may look further into this when the time comes :)

                    Here's where you can find April's review that talks about her cake experience: Destination Wedding in Mexico > Cabo Forum > Cabo Reviews (private)

                      Thanks Christa! It sounds like you may have saved many of us!
