I feel your pain on this one. I did 900 minis for a youth football league. When you're transporting them, you can fit 187 in a full sheet cake boxicon_smile.gif

Cupcakes have come along way since I had to throw 35+ together at the last minute for my kids to take to school for some reason or another.
Speaking as a wedding guest I think getting a beautifully made, filled and decorated individual work of cake art would make me feel special. Notice I said work of art, not the simple swirled cupcakes you get from the grocery store bakery.
Wedding cakes I admit are quite stunning to look at, but by the time they get to the table, for the most part they look like a slice of cake. IMO.
Don't get me wrong, I will eat and enjoy it, but I just thought I'd put another point of view out there.

Well I could make 96 at a time in my oven. I had the mini pans that hold 24 and I could fit 4 in there at a time. They take less than 10 minutes to bake. The real time consuming part is filling the little cups. If you put the cake mix in a pastry bag and fill the cups that will make it go a lot faster. Also, if you have extra pans that you can fill while you're baking that will help. The icing part takes forever too. I don't have any time savers on that. It took me about 15 hours total to get them all done.

Edited to add: Sorry if you got this too late. I didn't get a notification that anything had posted to this forum topic.

I've seen some gorgeous cupcakes, but most of the ones being passed off at weddings are very amateurish. The really good ones are more $$ than cake. I've also seen on someones website(cant remember which one) a picture of a cupcake tower they did for some celebrity bday and the poor girl had to open her mouth HUGE to get the cupcake bite without getting frosting all over her face.
If you search you'll find some very elegant ones. But I still think they'll need a plate and fork

Did you guys see what one of the competitors did with cupcakes last night on the Bridal competition on Challenge on Food Network? He stuck them into the foam dummys and used the cupcakes as separators...I loved it! A new take on the cupcake/wedding trend.

I think cupcakes are nice and different, but i will absolutely hate to be served one at a wedding.It depends on what the bride wants as there are some fantastic cupcake towers that i have seen,so if she wants them she should get them.Good luck.

You took the words out of my mouth! I thought his take on wedding cupcakes was very innovative. The whole thing was gorgeous!

I could not really see in the show how he was attaching the cupcakes to the foam. Glue? Toothpicks? What do you guys think?
