Wedding Cupcake from Cupcake Chic


September was the craziest, but most exciting month of the year for me (you can see by my lack of blog updates). And part of the excitement was when I get to plan a wedding reception for a very cute couple. The wedding theme was "Midsummer Night's Dream".



For those of you who haven't watched this movie (including yours truly), this is a comedy based from William Shakespeare's play featured ensemble casts like Kevin Kline, Michelle Pfeiffer, Rupert Everett, Calista Flockhart and the list goes on! All the magical and quirky elements of fairies, goddesses, donkey all rolled up into.

Oops, back to the cupcake, after a long search on the best cupcake for this event, I finally found a perfect place to go to - Cupcake Chic. My aim is to have the most classic, simple, good value and tastes good of course! Cupcake Chic happens to fit my budget perfectly. RM 3.60 for 100 pcs of cupcakes and they also provide acrylic tier rental.


My draft sketch for the cupcakes. Yes, it's custom made by request!

Whether you're an artist or not, get a piece of paper or just use any paint program, and sketch out your ideas and see how the shape, colors, textures and decor could compliment one another. You don't want to have a crowded looking cake piece, therefore it's best to find a focal point of attraction in the arrangement.

One of the best way to convey your ideas is to get your reference online or even from a piece of brochures or magazines.

Key in your keywords as specific as you can when looking for reference online. Example: 'yellow white cupcakes butterfly nature'. You'll be surprised to find out a lot of useful photos in the online world. Thank you, online contributors! :D

My steps to ordering Cupcake Chic cupcakes;
  1. E-mail your requirements, date of delivery and etc to order@cupcakechic.com.my
  2. Follow up by calling at 03 7726 9075.
  3. Meet the rep in person, clarify your cupcake designs (how you want it, the color scheme), the flavors, the prices and method of delivery. The flavors will depend on the day of your cupcake collection since the shop has a fixed flavors for everyday. You can view their wedding cupcake photo gallery here.
  4. Collect or have your cupcakes delivered. Extra RM50 will be charged for delivery within Klang Valley.

At first, I was worried that my cupcakes selection will look too boring cos I didn't choose the bright looking colors, but the lady from Cupcake Chic assured me that it's all about the arrangement and decor. And yes, she was right indeed! :D



Add fresh flowers, twinkle lights, bling blings and some green and you're good to go! The key is simplicity. It's best to stick to the theme color of the event and let the decor compliment the cupcakes.

Cupcake Chic has three branches; The Curve, Sunway Pyramid and Pavillion. The customer service is super excellent. Their rep was friendly and attentive to all my requirements. The guests loved the cupcakes. With that I put them in my 5 stars list! :)



GREAT NEWS!
