The Info About Wedding Cupcakes

Wedding cupcakes seem to be an "in" thing right now. Why? Because they're so easy to do and it doesn't require a major cake artist to accomplish, that's why! But how many do you make? Who is going to make them? Here is some information to help answer your questions.

Visit our other blog post for more ideas.

First, in order to answer the question, "How many?" you need to ask yourself a few more questions. How many guests are coming? Are they heavy eaters or dieters? Does the majority of them hit the food like a buffet or do they stick to serving portions? How many extra do you want to have as back-up, should some get dropped in the decorating process? Answer these questions, and you should know about how many. If you have 100 guests, and the majority of your friends and family diet frequently and watch what they eat, and you want say, 10 extra to cover mistakes, make about 120 - 130. If you have 100 guests that LOVE to eat and LOVE buffets, and you want 10 extra to cover mistakes, make 175 - 200. Get the idea?

Second, who is going to make them? You and your bridesmaids could make a big party of it if you'd like, or you may have a wonderful mother and grandmother that would do it. Just don't put them all on one person, or you may end up seeing grandma come to the wedded looking frizzed and frazzled!

Now, decide on cake flavors, frosting colors and how you're going to set up your beautiful cupcakes! Many people do the classic stacked wedding cake look with a stacked cupcake plate - which turns out beautiful!
Oh, and don't forget a small cake for the Bride and Groom to cut!

Good luck with wedding planning, and have a blessed life!
