Not a huge deal but MUST VENT.
When I went for my tasting, I’d told the caterer not to include dessert because I figured I could find it cheaper. But they provided us with cupcakes, which I thought was nice. When I looked at their proposed budget I noticed they included cupcakes and told them, “We plan on doing our cupcakes elsewhere, how much will taking the cupcakes off save from your proposed budget?” They told me that the cupcakes were only $200 for 200.
After doing the math on how much making my own cupcakes would cost, I told the caterer – okay you win. 200 cupcakes for a dollar is an insanely good deal.
Today I got a breakdown of every single detail in the catering budget: chicken, potatos, dill on the chicken, etc. And there are my cupcakes… 160 for $500…. EXCUSE ME? So it would’ve only saved me $200, but somehow added $500??
To save $500 I would have made my own cupcakes. Or gotten them from Georgetown cupcakes where they’re insanely delicious. I’m so POed.
