Cupcakes are cute... if I can't get outta a cake cutting fee we're having cupcakes & a dessert bar... -meoc
Many places will still charge a cake cutting fee even if you have cupcakes. I know. It doesn't make since but they still will
What the heck... that is obsurd! ... Well thanks for the heads up, I'll just prepare myself to walk away from those venues...
Luv the cup cakes!!!
our venue said the same, pinkgerbs....they said "look at it as a dessert fee, if you don't get a cake from one of our 3 recommended bakeries...then you have to pay $3/person fee no matter what kind of dessert/cake/cupcakes you serve" grrrrrr.....
That's what we are doing to cut the cost, I think people will like it b/c it hasn't been done yet in our area....
We're doing chocolate cupcakes stuffed with mocha mousse and topped with sugar roses (which my genius MOH is making), served with strawberries. They will double as dessert as well and they are going to be SO YUMMY!
Do it... they are soo cute and so much fun to eat. =o)
I love cupcakes! They definitely taste better! We did a cupcake tier instead of a cake. Everyone loved them!
those are gorgeous Eugugoly!!
I'm doing cupcakes as our wedding cake too~! Luckily our hotel isn't charging a cake cutting fee for our cupcakes~ so i guess it all depends. Man, Eugugoly~! Those cupcakes looks awesome (and yummy!)
Cupcakes taste much better than the fondant you have to peel off traditional wedding cakes. And they make for great photos too. :D
jackie and pinkgerbs...MY VENUE SAID THE SAME THING. Their $3.50 "cake cutting fee" was actually service fee for washing dishes and serving the damn dessert. Am I not already paying them their 20% service charge?! I was thinking of forgoing the cake altogether and just trying to wheedle a dessert out of them...we could have a "pretend" cake for cake cutting.
Primis - you can also have the top tier with cake that you can cut into. I can't upload photos at work, so check my photos for cupcakes with peach frosting and pearls! I'm planning on have those.
