Wedding Cupcakes

Why cupcakes instead of a wedding cake? First, who doesn't love a cupcake? Utensils not necessary and the perfect amount of deliciousness. Better question - who doesn't love a cupcake made by our dear friend and renowned baker Jamie? For those of you that have never had the pleasure of enjoying one of Jamie's cupcakes, you are missing out. Secondly, after receiving a quote from our wedding planner for a wedding cake on Maui (after picking my jaw up off the floor) I just could not justify the cost on a cake for the price she gave me. I also quickly realized that our guests would appreciate and enjoy a cupcake made by Jamie more than any cake a so-called professional would whip up for us. With all of that said, we are so thankful to Jamie for agreeing to make our cupcakes. Below are a few images of cupcakes that Jamie has made for previous events. The 80's cake toppers were a huge hit at our friend Michelle's 80's prom themed birthday party this year. The cupcakes with the gold coins were made for Steve's pirate themed birthday party and the #30 toppers were made for our friend Mike's 30th birthday party. Each of the toppers were creativey made by Jamie as well. Not only are the cupcakes appealing to the eye, but are mouthwatering as well. If you're thinking you want cupcakes for your next event, don't think twice about it, you should definitely contact Jamie.

What exemplifies Hawaii more than their beautiful flowers? In my opinion, nothing! Hence, one of the reasons most tourists are welcomed to the tropical islands with leis. The first flower that comes to my mind when I think of Hawaii is the orchid. Therefore, I love the idea of real orchids as the toppers for each cupcake at our wedding.

I love the arrangement of these cupcakes - beautiful presentation.

Great choice! People that don't like cupcakes are, well,....Un-American really.
