Cupcake labels

We are doing cupcakes in a jar for our favors 50 gingerbread with cream cheese icing and 50 sugar cookie with plum filling. I was wondering, should I label them as "Gingerbread" and "Sugarplum" or use their full descriptions? The jars are small mason jars which you can see the cupcake through. Thoughts?

    I think just Gingerbread and Sugarplum would be fine. And they both sound delicious!
    What did you think would happen if you walked up to a group of internet strangers and told them to get shoehorned by their lady doc?~StageManager14

    Thank you! I got very lucky when I stumbled across the lady taking care of these cupcakes. All that she bakes melts in your mouth.

    We are sterilizing the jars and then putting the cupcakes directly into the jar. We plan on providing little plastic spoons for everyone so they can just eat it out if the jar. We are also having a photo booth which is doubling as a different favor and as our guest book.

    <div>This is a good point. Our cupcake flavors were Almond Amaretto, Lemon Dream, and Strawberry. I initially wanted all 3 to be "exotic" or "unusual" flavors like the Amaretto, but my dad pointed out that not everybody likes that kind of stuff, so we included the simpler flavors as well. </div>

  • With the photobooth, you should be more than covered for those who don't want a cupcake favor.  I, on the other hand, would have a hard time choosing between Gingerbread and Sugarplum!  Laughing  Sounds delicious!!!

    </div><div>Thanks! I know the flavors are unusual, but we're serving full dinner and three different cake flavors & fillings (pound cake & boston cream pie, lemon cake & raspberry filling, and the biggest layer is marble cake with fudge filling). So between the cake & cupcakes, hopefully everyone will be covered!
