tuesday tip: piece of cake

You're flipping through a bridal magazine and ogling over a gorgeous five-tiered wedding cake. It's dripping with luscious luxury and beautiful hand-placed pearls. You just have to have it towering over your reception. This scenario sounds wonderful if you're having nearly 300 guests at your wedding. But if you're only expecting around 150, you're family is going to be boxing up a lot of baked goodness to take home and devour.

No matter the theme or style of your wedding, it's important to start with the number of guests you expect, and then plan your cake or cupcakes from there. Lucky for our brides and readers, we're great friends with the one and only Mamie Doyle of Miss Mamie's Cupcakes, Cakes & Such, and she has graciously given us a helpful guide to share! By reviewing these custom charts we created before going to your cake tasting (seriously, one of the best parts of planning), you'll get a better idea of dessert options based on your guest list so you're prepared to talk details with your pastry chef of choice.

For those of you who may be new followers of Tin Can, you can read about our humble beginnings and special relationship with this bakery HERE.

A tasty tip!

All of the beautiful cakes and cupcakes pictured in our charts were created by Miss Mamie's in Marietta. We certainly look forward to the reception time when we know a masterpiece by this bakery is on display!

From our world to yours,
