I have been looking at the prices of wedding cupcakes and i am floored at some of them. having a wedding "cake" is not really a priority on my list. it would be nice to have one to stick to that tradition but i'm not losing sleep over it. i was looking to spend no more than $200 on it and i was thinking of making it with my sister-in-law-to-be.
i have been You Tubing the best way to go about it (making it the day before, 2 days before and freezing it. how to freeze it for freshness etc). i am inviting 160 people and making 170 (10 in case of accidents)
do you guys think that it is possible to make 170 basic chocolate and vanilla cupcakes with simple but elegant icing, a small round cake on top for cutting and buying a cup cake tower all for $200 (maybe $s50 at MAX)
do you think that i am crazy for trying to make my own wedding cupcakes? i just don't feel like spending $2.00 or more per cupcake as i would if i went to a baker.
any advice or suggestions are appreciated.
