I am making cupcakes for my son's wedding and there will be approximately 150 people. How many cupcakes should I make? Thank you in advance!
125% of confirmed rsvps.
It's typically two cupcakes per person. What size cupcakes are you going to make?
Will there be wedding cake served too?
They will be regular size cupcakes and I am also making just a 2 tier cake, the bottom one for cutting and the top one to save. Do people still do that? I was wondering about sheet cakes. Does anyone still do that. I guess I don't get out much! I used to decorate cakes for people aloooooong time ago, but I want to do this for my son. I am using Swiss Meringue for the cupcakes and was going to do that for the wedding cake. Will that be OK? I have to transport all of this about 1 1/2 hours on a Friday, and the wedding Saturday. I am now getting nervous!
Unless you have somewhere to keep the cupcakes cool, I would do a Swiss meringue. How if you going to make a cake, how many cupcakes are you gonna make?
I figured I would need 200 cupcakes to be safe. I wasn't really figuring the cake at all. If someone wants some (which the brides mother will be eating-she has been a momzilla) cake, they can have it. Initially they were only doing cupcakes, but mom (not me) wants a cake. She doesn't like cupcakes.......
