We love weddings, and would be thrilled to make cupcakes for yours.
There are TONS of things to consider – flavors, colors, style, quantity, do you want a small cake for the ceremonial cut at the reception?
Where to start? Contact Jen! She'll lead you through the process and schedule a consultation and tasting.
We love the look of cupcakes – but they are also often less expensive than wedding cakes and easier to serve – you don't need to have your caterer cut and distribute slices, and you don't need plates and forks.
Can I have more than one flavor?
Yes. It's also possible to have some vegan cupcakes and some with dairy in the same order. If you order multiple flavors, it's important to consider that some of your guests may want to try all the flavors, so you'll need to increase the quantity, and the number of flavors may increase the cost.
How many cupcakes should I order?
If you are ordering standard sized cupcakes, we recommend ordering one per person plus at least 10 percent extra. Some caterers recommend ordering 50 percent more – you should consider a larger quantity if you know your guests like dessert, if cupcakes will be served in a buffet (as opposed to being served to tables by waiters), and if you have more than one flavor. If you are ordering mini cupcakes, we recommend 2 to 3 per person.
When should I order my wedding cupcakes?
As soon as you can! We take reservations a year (or more!) in advance. It's never too early to schedule a consultation and make a reservation to insure that we're available for you.
When do you schedule consultations? What happens at the consultation?
We meet with wedding clients on Wednesday and Thursday evenings, and Saturday afternoons. At the consultation, we'll ask you a lot of questions and go over a lot of options.You'll leave with a box of samples to try at home.
What will my cupcakes look like? What flavor should I get?
Browsing this very website will give you a sense of our style. During our consultation we'll discuss the colors and decorations you've planned, and the food and flavors that you will be having at your reception. We'll work together to find the perfect flavor and decorations for you and your guests.
What is a "cutting cake" and do I want one?
Many couples who order cupcakes still want the ceremonial cutting of the cake during their reception. We recommend ordering a small 6-inch round cake to use during the reception, made in the same style and flavor as your cupcakes.
How much will they cost?
Cupcakes for weddings are the same price as all our cupcakes – $2.75 to $3.25 for standard sized, and $1 to $1.25 for mini. Organic and specialty ingredients or fondant decorations can add to the cost of your order. You may receive a discount depending on the quantity, and we'd be happy to create a custom quote for you. Cutting cakes that are 6 inches start at $40.
When do you make the cupcakes? Will they be fresh?
All cupcakes are made within 24 hours of the reception, though some decorations may be created and dried several days in advance.
Do you deliver?
For weddings within the greater San Francisco Bay Area and destinations up to 2 hours away, delivery is typically $50 or $1.00 per mile, whever is greater. You could consider having a member of the wedding party pick them up. Delivery does not include set up unless specifically arranged in advance.
Do you rent your display stands?
We have several stands that we rent, and you can view them online here. We were happy with a cardboard cupcake stand we got from Green Party Goods if you are looking for a different option, and they also sell cardboard stands at the craft store Michaels.
Can you recommend a photographer (DJ / Venue / Caterer)?
We have a whole list of recommended vendors here.
