Traditional wedding cake Vs. Cupcakes

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have any input on the price of a traditional wedding cake Vs. a non traditional cupcake cake. I emailed this inspiration photo to my WC and she quoted me a price of $370.00 for 35 people. Does this seem reasonable? I am taking into consideration that I do want 1 tier for the traditional cutting ceremony, but the total comes out to more than $10 per cupcake.

I recieved the menu pricing on the cake from the food & bev director and the price fro a 3 tier cake that feeds 40-50 people comes out to $335.00

What do you think??

I LOVE the idea of a cupcake wedding cake. It's what my fiance and I have decided on. Traditional wedding cake rarely tastes good because of all the fondant that caked on. I think the cupcakes look cute and are much tastier! We're also doing a candy buffet.

 

My wedding coordinator has quoted me $150 for cupcakes to feed up to 50 guests, and that includes a cake on the top layer to do the traditional cutting.

Thank-you for your input. I think the price your WC quoted seems alot more reasonable. Just curious, Is your WC quoting an outside vendor or are you getting married at a specific hotel that will be doing your cake.smile03.gif

I just did cupcakes for my wedding last month -- my husband and I have long been known for our love of cupcakes so it seemed very fitting! Plus we both had also never tasted a wedding cake we liked. Well, we both loved the cupcakes and so did our guests! Some people had 3 or 4 cupcakes! There were so yummy!

 

I sent my wedding coordinator a picture essentially identical to yours (we also had one giant cupcake on top so that we could do a tradition cutting of the "cupcake"). We only paid what worked out to $6 per cupcake though -- quite a bit less and for what looks like the exact same thing. We had 75 cupcakes in three different flavors (chocolate cake-vanilla icing, vanilla cake-chocolate icing, key lime) and it also looks there are three different icing flavors in your photo. I think the total was $450. Hope this helps.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • 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.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
