I am hoping to do cupcakes for my wedding, but when I priced it at my local mom-and-pop bakery at $3/cupcake for 175 people that comes to $525-- I'd love to give this place my business! But that seriously impedes my budget for "Everything Else", including decorations, hair & make-up-- is around $500 what a wedding cake would normally cost? I just really don't know.
The place I want to use-- it's so nice. The woman who runs it is super nice, everything looks beautiful, and they seem happy about what they do. It's located in Fishtown and called Whipped Bakeshop. They also do regular cakes there, for anyone looking for a cake/cupcake place.
But anyway, any help here?
