Wedding Cupcakes

Wedding cupcakes are a lovely alternative to a traditional wedding cake. They can also be great treats for your engagement or hen party too. They’re perfect as an alternative to a large wedding cake or as an extra sweet treat to match in with your cake.

There are so many options with Cupcakes, you can keep them all the same for a more uniform look or you can mix and match flavours for a more rustic look. There are so many flavours to choose from too.

Cupcakes generally cost €2.50 per cupcake, and the 6″ top tier cake ranges from €80-€120, depending on the design.

We will deliver and set up the cupcakes on one of our cupcake stands at your venue. A deposit may be required for the stand, but is returned once the stand is returned to us.

Grooms Cake

Originally an English Tradition, dating back to the Victorian era, a Groom cake is a gift from the bride to the groom that reflects his personality and interests, hobbies, favorite sports, profession or anything else he enjoys.

The groom’s cake is generally in the grooms favorite flavour and is displayed next to the wedding cake.

Here at Vanilla Bean Bakery we can make that for you and deliver it with the wedding cake on the day. These cakes are priced individually based on the design of the cake.

Payment

To confirm a wedding cake order and hold a date, a non-refundable deposit of €50 is required, which can be paid here. The balance is due 2 weeks before delivery or on collection of the cake.

Booking Form

For every wedding a Booking Form is required , and is generally filled out at your consultation, in the event it is not or you do not have a consultation the form can be found here and returned to us via email.
