Chicago, IL (PRWEB) July 16, 2009
Phoebe's Cupcakes™ (http://www.phoebescupcakes.com) announced today that it launched Phoebe's Wedding Cupcakes & Cakes™ catering service (http://www.phoebescupcakes.com/chicago-wedding-cupcakes-parties-catered-events.php) and that it recently completed catering its first 3 weddings in the Chicago area. Phoebe's Cupcakes founders Phoebe Walters and Kate McNamara have a combined more than 8 years of experience with wedding cupcake catering prior to founding Phoebe's Cupcakes, and have catered weddings ranging from small, intimate weddings of two dozen people, to their largest wedding of 5,000 guests. Phoebe's Cupcakes will cater weddings of any size in the Chicago area, and weddings nationwide with more than 1,000 guests.
Phoebe's Cupcakes differentiates itself from other bakeries in Chicago that provide cupcakes for weddings in a number of ways. In contrast to other bakeries that simply provide cupcakes and a stand to display the cupcakes on, Phoebe and Katie work with the bride and groom to create a unique, highly customized, and beautiful cupcake wedding cake that is arranged with flowers and other decorations to look like a cake, and manage the set-up and arrangement at receptions. Phoebe and Katie's backgrounds in art and their culinary school training enable them to do beautiful, specialized decorations of each cupcake. The company has more than 200 flavors of cupcakes for the bride and groom to choose from, providing endless possibilities for customization. All 200 flavors may be viewed at http://www.phoebescupcakes.com/chicago-wedding-cupcakes-parties-catered-events.php. The company also makes wedding cakes, and can arrange for a smaller cake to cut at the top of an arrangement of cupcakes.
Founder and President Phoebe Walters said of the launch of the company's wedding cupcake and cake catering service, "Phoebe's Cupcakes is all about celebrating the important moments in people's lives and I am unbelievably excited to help make brides and grooms' wedding day extra special."
Jocelyn Sanchez of Chicago said of Phoebe's involvement in her wedding to Chuck Sanchez of Chicago, "Phoebe really has the special touch to personalize and customize her cupcakes and present them in a way that will compliment any event. The presentation of the cupcakes at the wedding was beautiful and I think the cupcakes were the most photographed item at the wedding aside from Chuck and me. The taste lived up to the beautiful presentation and I have become a regular customer since the wedding. I really felt like she cared deeply about making my day special. And she did."
Pricing for Phoebe's Cupcakes to cater a wedding is at $2.50 to $3.50 per cupcake, with an additional 25% set-up and delivery charge for weddings in the Chicago area. The starting price of $2.50 per cupcake is for cupcakes that are being sold in the company's bakery and café in the Lakeview neighborhood of Chicago, the week of a wedding. Higher prices are for cupcakes that are not on the weekly menu and require custom ordering of ingredients and decoration of the individual cupcakes. Pricing for set-up and arrangement for weddings outside the Chicago area varies based on the city the wedding is located in.
