Did you make your own...?

Hi ladies!!

I was wondering if anyone has made their own wedding cake and/or cupcakes? If so, may I see a pic of it? Was it hard to do? How many guests did you make the cake/cupcakes for? Did you make less for fear it'll go to waste?

i havent, but know several people who did.  as far as how much to make...that depends on the guests and the number.  in my case, i had a small wedding with less than 50 people and know everyone likes dessert.  so when i ordered the cake i made sure it was for 50 people.  if you are having a larger wedding and dont know everyone really well, then you may be able to get by with less cake.  but, honestly, if you are making it yourself and saving money that way why not make it big enough for everyone to have some.  if there is leftover you can freeze it or give it to your family or friends that live close by.   hope that helped some.

I did! I made a 3 tier cake and over 250 cupcakes. For me, it was super easy and relaxing, but that might be because I've been decorating cakes for years. I made it all because 1. I enjoy it. 2. It was cheaper. lol. 3. Who doesn't love homemade goodies?!


Here are some pics. I can answer any questions you have and so can LauraSweet. She rocks are cakes too!

oh wow that looks amazing! thanks for the idea! so you did sort of like a cupcake buffet? we are doing a dessert display as well and I do not think it is necessary for us to have so much wedding cake if they are going to give our guests more dessert... hmm..

The cupcakes were our "favors", so we had boxes (the blurry things in the pic) for our guests to load up.

I didn't personally make mine, but a friend of the family volunteered to! We had cupcakes too. They turned out beautifully!

NotFroofy made ours.  To avoid the need for a lot of "architecture"--and the possibility of disaster if a layer slipped--she made it as a cascading cake (each layer on a separate stand, with the smallest layer on the highest stand, etc.) instead of a traditional tiered cake.  It was absolutely delicious!


She made four layers--6", 8", 10", and 12".  We saved the top layer for our first anniversary.  The other three layers were about twice as much as we needed for our 60 guests.
