    I love the idea of surprise churros! We has nachos and empanadas as our midnight snack surprise. :)

     

    Yes, I am worried about the cake melting but we are big foodies and I like things to taste good! I will take your advice and send her an email.  I am so geeked about the churros!

    hey lady!! how about cream cheese icing? we were told the butter cream wouldn't hold up with the heat & humidity (and I've seen that here in TX too), and I too despise the taste of fondant.

     

    our resort was able to do cream cheese icing on the cupcakes, and they held up beautifully, even on a warm & humid night. might be an option to ask about! certainly more tasty than fondant...

I really don't like the taste of fondant, but I'm worried that my cake will melt in the heat. I much prefer butter cream frosting. Is there anyway to make this work, or should I just suck it up and get fondant?

        I will definitely send you a PM once I figure out my decor.  I've been really careful about buying anything on my end, because I don't want to waste money on things that won't fit into my decor. Renting honestly sounds like a better option.  If you have any suggestions for my venue, I'd love to hear them!

        mmm red velvet are my favorite cupcakes!!!

         

        yeah, I'm not sure how that'd work with tres leches cake. might be a little too rich (is that possible)? worst case...you can peel off the fondant. or... does tres leches really need icing? I'm thinking of the ones I've had that are more rustic - so soaked with milk that there's no icing at all. idunno, I guess it'll depend on who does the cake and how they make it.

         

        I have to say..the cake was one of my issues too - I just love cake!!! we settled for the cupcakes at the wedding, and they were yummy. I'm totally thinking about getting a small 1 tier cake made for our anniversary here locally, since we don't have the traditional top tier from our wedding day (though I also hear it's horrible after sitting in the freezer for a year).

          What vendor did you use for cotton candy? I'm getting married in Tulum and LOVE that idea!

          Hey ladies! I also used Zaida of Dolcet for the desserts at our wedding a month ago. I'll admit it sometimes took her a little while to get back to me, but that seems to be the norm down here in the Riviera Maya. She was always very friendly, helpful and delivered exactly what I asked her to do. I was very specific about what I wanted and I was blown away by the cupcakes she made for us!

           

          We asked for a small cake for our cutting ceremony (it fed 10 people and was $40 USD) and 60 fondant cupcakes ($5 USD each) for our guests. Our wedding was in Tulum and the delivery from Cancun was $120 USD. People were raving about the cupcakes all night! I unfortunately didn't get a chance to eat anything more than the cake my (now) husband smooshed into my face, but that piece was great!  She included the cupcake tower for free.

           

          I provided the cupcake wrappers, the ship in a bottle cake topper and the teal letters, so those are not included with her services. The cotton candy was from a different vendor as well.
