Dessert is evolving.
Originally my Mother-in-law & Aunty-in-law and Sister-in law were going to join forces to make us some homemade goodies for a dessert buffet.
Which sounded great to us, although I did ask them have a think about it, as much as we'd love their home-cooking we'd also love them to feel relaxed and have nothing to worry about on the day.
So they did have a think.. and decided that perhaps they don't really want to cook the desserts after all.
So I asked the caterer about adding dessert to our menu he said it would cost an extra $11/head. Which is probably reasonable(?) but with 150 people is $1650.. And I'm doubtful that after a continous supply of hearty bbq food and alcohol that many people will be wondering what's for dessert...
So we returned to the original idea of just serving wedding cake for dessert, as it's something we'll be buying anyway... And because we doing cocktail style bbq a practical solution is cupcakes, as no plates or cutlerly required.
I'm liking these... They look yummy, they look weddingly, and they look cute without being 'too' cute

I have had a quick look on-line for some similar looking cupcake picks but most seem to be cartoon-like looking brides and grooms, or babylike bride and grooms.. if anyone knows where to find more dignified, adult looking mini-toppers like the ones above please let me know!
