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 love cupcakes too. That is the latest craze. I'm having cupcakes at my bridal shower so I'm opting for a traditional cake for the wedding. I think all cakes and cupcakes are pricey because of the details put into them so the quotes you got are about right.

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.
