Cake or Cupcakes or Both or None?

What Sugary Goodness Fits Your Wedding Day?

So you’re planning your wedding, and the venue is locked and the vendors all hired.  What is the next big step? The CAKE of course!  But what cake is right for you?  We’re seeing more and more couples shifting away from the expensive tiered cakes in favor of an assortment of cupcakes complimented by a small 8″ cake for cutting and photos.  Some people just do a whole bunch of different finger food deserts.  But that is not to say Wedding Cakes are off the table, cakes are getting bigger, better and more beautiful by the day!  Just ask our friends over at the Bread Basket Cake Company in Camarillo, they produce some of the most beautiful cakes we’ve ever seen!

But how to decide which is right for your big day?  Budget wise, you should plan for about 2/3 of your guests to actually enjoy cake or dessert.   Big tiered cakes get progressively more expensive by the layer, so shop around for your perfect cake, and compare taste, design, value and cost-per-serving when considering your cake.  Not only should it look gorgeous, it should taste good too! 

For cupcakes, yes, you are loosing the big fanciful cake, but you are gaining variety.  Want 10 flavors of cupcake and frosting, go for it!  You can go simple or fancy with your cupcakes, ranging from $1 to $5 each depending on your baker.  You can also stack them up on beautiful cupcake stands, or surround a small cake with them.  Cupcakes fill that sugary need your guests will be craving after an hour of dancing!

And of course you can do a boatload of candy and desert finger foods!  We’re particularly fond of anything chocolate.  We’ve seen a surprising amount of candy apples and cookies as well. 

Oh man, this blog post is making me hungry!  I’ll be back, you check out some of the photos of the cakes and other deserts we’ve had the pleasure of eating…um, setting up on the weddings and events we’ve worked on!

SPARKLY!
