I'm making a 3 tiered babyshower cake for a friend of mine this weekend. I just found out that the "planner" has also decided to make cupcakes to "go around" the cake (because she thinks it'll be cute & so the kids can eat them throughout the party). I'm having a little bit of anxiety about this... Am I'm overreacting when I'm thinking classy vs home-made on the same display = Are you SERIOUS RIGHT NOW?! How do I handle this? She wants to make home-made cupcakes with babyshower picks or sprinkles & I'm making a clean white fondant cake. PLEASE HELP!! icon_redface.gif

Why not set your cake up on nice cake plate or stand so it is separate from the cupcakes? Everything always works out just fine.

Often, homemade can be just as good as 'professional' - especially in cupcakes.
Last night my DD had friends in and one of them made cuppies - though many of us didn't care for the icing on them, the actual cuppies were very good, light and fluffy as cake should be icon_smile.gif (That is in MHO)
