  3. What do you guys think about cupcake wedding cakes?

    I personally love it. The idea of cutting a cake and feeding each other a slice just never appealed to me. That link gives you an idea of what that is. nah don't be sorry, I welcome all opinions. ;-) petit fours? well I just googled that when you mentioned it in your answer, frankly I never heard of them before but I like the results from google. They look cool. Thanks for mentioning it.

  4. I would like to know if there was a bakery in LA that makes cupcake wedding cakes?


  5. Cupcake Wedding Cakes?

    What is everyones opinion on having a cupcake wedding cake? Is a traditional cake better? I saw one at a wedding a few months ago and thought that it was fun and sort of funky, and now that we are planning our own wedding I'm thinking of having one. However, instead of actual cupcakes I was thinking of having modifid ones more similar to petit fours with an actual cake on top for the one year anniversary. I'm thinking of doing one similar to this minus the ribbons, probably a bit larger and with our own colors (bright green and pink). What do you think? I'm also considering putting a dessert or candy buffet with it. Which would you prefer if you were a guest?

  6. What do you think: Cupcake wedding cakes?

    So instead of paying $2.50 a slice at this "Mom and Pop" bakery nearby, I can pay $1.50 per cupcake, and have a cupcake wedding cake! I found several cupcake styles online, but YA is blocking me from using any of them in my question! ugh! Anyway, there are tons of different things we can do! Our colors are tiffany's blue, a little brown, and white. So it will look very delicate, and not overbearing like some that I've seen. (ie: way too much decoration/detail) What do you think of them? Do you think it's cute? Weird? Have you ever been to a wedding with one of these? Would you rather get cake?--- or does it not really matter? Yes of course it will be on a nice, tiered stand! :) And we are also having a small cake on top, for the traditional cutting of the cake. The cupcakes will be of amazing quality. The bakery is known for amazing sweets, and has been around since the early 1900's! So it will be GOOD food! Also, the cupcake wedding cake is saving us around $200!

  9. Any one have experience with cupcake and traditional wedding cake combos?

    I'm getting married in June. It will not be a really formal wedding. I have seen so many beautiful wedding cakes that I love, but recently, alot of my friends have been telling me about these cupcake towers with designs and everything. They are cute.

  15. Making my own cupcake wedding cake, any ideas?

    Our original plan didn't fall through and now my fiance and I are trying to find a cake vendor at the last minute for our upcoming wedding. The only thing is, we didn't have to pay anything for our original idea and we hadn't put much aside for it in our budget. Everyone said I should stay away from making my own wedding cake, but then I heard about cupcake wedding cakes. Am I naive to think that I could probably easily pull this off? I would just need to make cupcakes, decorate 'em and make a small slab cake for the top. What sort of things do I need to consider/plan on buying? Anyone recommend NOT doing this?

Does anyone happen to have any really yummy cupcake recipes and/or a super decadent icing recipe as well? Our wedding is not until next fall but I plan on trying out a few recipes before we decide on one to use for our big day cupcakes.

  20. A Cupcake wedding cake?

    Okay, my fiance and I LOVE the cupcake wedding cake idea. Then we could have the chocolate (which I like) and the white (which he likes) and wouldn't have the hassel of having to transport a huge cake, plus the price is more reasonable. However both sets of parents plus a woman who refers to herself as my half mom say it's a silly idea, so what is everyone elses opinion? BTW we are getting married around Halloween.

But we are having a wedding 2 hours away from our home so we are planning for about 40 people. I'm looking for a fall wedding cake OR something that has grapes on it since are getting married in a vineyard. I want to get cheaper but still looks great.

    My fiance and I are on a budget for our marriage this August but we really like the look of having one small cake for us to cut at the top, followed below by miniature "cakes" - one tiny cupcake-sized cake for each person. There are many photos of this on google (just search "miniature wedding cakes"). Would this be more expensive to make than just a regular weding cake, or would it be cheaper? We would like the fondant either way.

    I have been baking for awhile, and people seem to like the product, BUT I realize that my cakes/cupcakes have hardly tasted as good as the ones from good bakery that I like. Going to culinary school can, hopefully, give me a good foundation on baking & decorating, but it is a LOT of money. WHAT DO YOU THINK…SHOULD I INVEST IN SCHOOL OR KEEP ON READING/TRYING RECIPE FROM THE BOOKS. Thank you so much for all your answers.

  28. What do you think about a cupcake tower for the wedding cake?

    I think they are cute but my fiance thinks they are cheesy. yeah, if I did it I would have a small cake on top for the cake cutting... Cheesecake is a good idea too It is sorta formal but not overly done. I like the packaged cupcake idea too....

  29. cupcake wedding cake??

    Ok.. what do you think of this cake for a wedding cake. Mind you.. my wedding is in the summer. gerber daisies like shown but slightly different color.. a very summery look to the wedding.. and not super super fancy.. thanks BTW - this bouquet is the basis for my colors. **I agree with the person who said there is a lot of space between layers. I like when they are closer to the top of the cupcakes.

  30. Anyone ever had Giant Eagle Wedding Cakes and other wedding cake questions?

    I am trying to plan a wedding on a small budget. Has anyone ever had a wedding cake from Giant Eagle? Do you know how much they run? We only have Wal-Mart and Giant Eagle in Marietta Ohio. And I private bakeries are so expensive. I am also thinking about doing a cake for the adults and a cupcake tower for the kids. (there will be 20 kids there) I am going to make the cupcakes but I'd rather have a store bought wedding cake. Any suggestions? How big of a cake do I need for 60 people?

  31. Help with wedding cake/cupcake ideas....?

    My fiance & I are considering this for our wedding cake: We would have a small (maybe 2-tiered?) traditional cake for the cake-cutting ceremony. Then in place of the groom's cake have a stand of chocolate cupcakes to be served to the guests. Another idea I had was to have a large tiered stand of cupcakes, with half of them white (for the 'bridal cake') & then the other half chocolate (for the groom's 'cake' ). So if you saw the stand from the front, the left side would be all chocolate & the right side all white. If we did this, should we forget the small traditional cake all together & just do cupcakes? Which idea do you like better? Any thoughts/ideas are appreciated! Just so you know, we are having a laid-back, outdoor wedding in the fall. Between 80-100 guests.

  32. When should I make my wedding cupcakes?

    Rather than have a wedding cake, we are having a cupcake tower which I am making with the help of my sister!

I was planning to use a simple vanilla recipe for some cakes and a chocolate recipe for the others. Any advice would be gratefully received!

  33. cupcake wedding tier cake?

    have you been to a wedding where they had the tiers of cupcakes with the little cake at top. what do you think of them, does it really cut cost? anyone done this themselves we are having a beach wedding so i thought it be cute if each one had a white chocolate seashell on it

  34. Wedding cupcakes question - how many cakes?

    I'm having a tower of cupcakes instead of a wedding cake. How many cupcakes should I order? Is it one per guest? That's a whole lot of cakes! Or is it less than that? What did you have at your wedding? I think I need to be more specific with my question. If I have say... 30 guests, do I need 30 cupcakes? and I have 120 guests, do I therefore need 120 cupcakes? I need to know if it if wrong to have less cupcakes than there are guests... because then some guests do not get to eat a cupcake.

  35. Wedding cupcake/cake decoration tips..?

    Me and my fiance decided to have a cupcake tier and a mini. cake on the top. The thing is we are making it ourselves. The baking part will be easy but decorating is another thing. I want to have flowers or maybe butterflies. Especially since the place we are getting married is famous of monarch butterflies. We have thought much about the decoration of the cake and cupcakes. But I have no idea where to start. I know it would be hard to do, but I want it to look somewhat professional. Any one knows a website that shows how to make fancy looking flowers or any kind of fancy cake/cupcake decorations?? Or maybe can just explain how to do the fancy looking decorating?

  36. Are cupcake cheaper then a wedding cake?

  37. Considering a cupcake tower for the wedding!?

    My fiance and I are planning our wedding on a budget. I'm very creative and want to do a cupcake tower instead of purchasing a wedding cake. We're only having 55 guests. Just wondering if anyone has ever done it before and if so, how did it come out?

  38. Picnic recipes for wedding reception????

Southern fried chicken Garden Pasta Salad Sliced Cucumbers and Onions Kettle Style Chips Chocolate Sandies Cookies Cupcake Wedding Cake Any comments or alternate ideas would be appreciated.

  44. Cupcakes or a wedding cake?

    What are some pros and cons to having a cupcake wedding cake? My fiance and I really like the idea since it is like everyone gets their own mini cake. The baker said that they would provide us with a six in. cake that we can cut. A part of me really likes this idea yet the other parts wants to stay more traditional with a wedding cake. Any suggestions or ideas?

  47. Chocolate hearts for wedding cupcakes?

    As some of you know we are having a chocolate themed wedding. Our cake is made up of one 7" cake on the top with several layers of cupcakes on a stand below. The cupcakes will be of vanilla and chocolate but will all be wrapped in a gold foil paper that has a heart filigree punched out of it. They will all have an ivory colored white chocolate flavored frosting. I also want them to have little milk chocolate filigree hearts on each one, but I'm having a terrible time trying to find them, or even a web site that shows you how to make them yourself. Any ideas? Or has anyone even seen a cupcake like this? Sort of like this only smaller
