My friend is having 24 kids and 50 adults to her son's 1st birthday party. She had wanted a cake, a smash cake and cupcakes with a monster theme. I suggested cupcakes and a smash cake and her reaction was "my in-laws are not going to want to eat cupcakes. They will want cake." Are cupcakes a kid thing? Last I looked Georgetown Cupcake did a booming business on adults.
I am going with her wishes, though, and making 24 monster cupcakes and a large monster cake for 50 people. If I have leftover batter I will add the smash cake as a surprise.
Do adults not eat monster cupcakes? It's a 1st b-day party, after all.
