How many per person do you plan to get?
We are hoping to have 130-150 guests attend and have ordered 150 medium size, filled cupcakes and 25 small, non-filled cupcakes.
How do you plan to display them, depending on the number you are ordering?
I have bought several large white, square, ceramic platters from Homegoods. We will have the small cake we’re cutting into on a cake stand in the middle of the table, surrounded by these platters of cupcakes.
How many flavor options will you have? How are you letting guests know what they are?
We have 5 flavors total. The filled cupcakes are carrot cake with cream cheese mousse, hazelnut cake with dulce de leche mousse, chocolate cake with peanut butter mousse and coconut cake with Key Lime mousse. The mini cupcakes are all coconut cake with chocolate mousse icing. I will be keeping a single flavor per platter and will be making some signs to place along with them…I don’t know of any of our guests with peanut allergies, but due to the peanut butter and coconut (surprising a lot of people don’t like coconut!) flavors, I feel it’s necessary.
Are you having take home boxes available for leftovers?
Yes. The cupcakes are part of our large dessert buffet and I’ve purchased large craft gable boxes for them to fill with all of their goodies, cupcakes included! This, in addition the photo booth will serve as the favors.
Will you be serving any other non-cake (cupcakes *are* cake regardless of the serving/presentation size) desserts in addition or not?
Yes. Our dessert buffet will include the cupcakes, as well as pumpkin spice mini donuts, caramel apples, Buckeye candy, maple sugar leaf candies, M & Ms, chocolate covered Oreos, chocolate covered coffee beans, rock candy sticks, caramel creams and a few other candy items yet to be determined!
