Why do I need all of this? At the end of May, I agreed to do the wedding cake for the sister of my dear friend, Alicia. I really didn't know what I was getting myself into at the time. The wedding cake has evolved into a bride's cake, a groom's cake, a sheet cake and cupcakes. Cake for about 300 people. I shouldn't be surprised. Alicia asked me to do the cake for Kellie's bridal shower in September which was for 80 people. I'd never heard of 80 people at a bridal shower.
Last year I did cupcakes for Alicia's wedding. Initially she was going to have myself and someone else making the cupcakes and it was going to be 100 for each of us. It became 200 for me when the other person backed out. It wasn't that big of a deal. Sans intricate decorations, cupcakes are much easier than cake and with some help from the Hubs in getting the cupcakes displayed, I managed to pull it off quite successfully.
