- Wedding: September 2010
I am having a cake/cupcake stand for my wedding ceremony. I will have a small cutting cake on top and cupcakes on the bottom. We are having a mix of cupcakes, ice cream truffles and creme brulee. I am wondering how many cupcakes I should get? We decided to do a 50/50 split. As we had the choice of ice cream truffles with cake/cupcakes that we will bring in or creme brulee. I personally LOVE creme brulee, but realize that everyone else does not. The wedding planner said not to get a cupcake for each person because there will be tons left over. I am thinking 75 cupcakes (or 72 for an even 6 dozen) and 75 creme brulee for 150 guest. I was surprised to see that some bees order in excess of 40-70 cupcakes to the number of invited guest.
Those that have already had there weddings prehapse you could share how many cupcakes or how much of your cake remained after the reception? I recently went to a wedding and there was at least 30 plates of cake left over.
