Happy New Years Ladies! 2013 is here and I will be in Maui Hawaii next year for our 15th Anni...
I LOVE, emphasis really added here, L-O-V-E GiGi's cupcakes. I've been thinking about foregoing a wedding cake (maybe?) and just doing gourmet cupcakes from my fave place, but wasn't sure I'd really end up saving money AND not sure if I'd regret not having a wedding cake on our special day.
I've found one of Patrick's close childhood friends who is a baker (shouts out to Carlos Chisholm!) to help with the groomscake since my sweetie loves the Washington Redskins...BUT as for the wedding cake I'm in total deer in the headlights mode.
I've been to weddings where cupcakes were served and the display and cupcake itself had ALOT to do with the ho-hum-nothing-special feeling I got and I definetly don't want that experience. I know my caterer is excellent, and paired with GiGi's cupcakes it would be off the chain with the display and the melt in your mouth goodness that would make you want to slap your mama.. But, will I want a wedding cake at the last minute?? aaaaaagh>>>>>>> such a tough decision.
Because we're getting married in the Fall, GiGi's has my all time favorite flavors during that time, and everytime I think about it I just get giddy, excited, my fingers dance, I get a sparkle in my eye and can almost taste it. Yep.. I love GiGi's Cupcakes. Only thing is, I have a bit of a curious palette and I don't want to invest in a zillion cupcakes that only I'm in love with..
Help somebody, HELP! hahahahaha. So far, I'm torn between a lovely vintage damask design wedding cake with ribbons that would really be nice or my GiGi's cupcakes that make me warm and fuzzy inside but probably cost me about the price of a huge wedding cake once I order enough to feed my guests.
I'm feeling the tug of wanting to splurge.. somebody reel me back in before I bust my budget!! hahahahaha
