I had cupcakes but I think they looked really elegant and beautiful, we then gave them to the guests as favours in little perspex boxes.

@simpleandchic: Mmm yummy and pretty.

FI doesn’t really like cake so we’re having a tier of cheese for our cake. But, because I do like cake we’re having cupcakes for people to take away in red boxes as favours as simpleandchic: also did.

We are going with cupcakes because 1-they are cheaper than a wedding cake (at least among the bakeries I have seen) and 2-my fiance and I have a tradition of finding a cupcake shop in any new city that we visit.

we’re doing cupcakes, mini cobblers, and cider doughnuts arranged as a tiered cake (fall wedding near apple orchards). i like that you can have a variety of flavors for people to easily choose from with cupcakes.  you can also have a small cake for you to cut, if you wanted.

We were going to do cupcakes, but when we met with the chef at the venue he suggested croquembouche. It was beautiful and uniquie!

We did a cake – but if I could do it over again I think we would do cupcakes with a small cake on top for our toppers!

I’m gluten free so we’re doing a two tier gluten free cake for us and regular cupcakes for everyone else. Cupcakes usually are less expensive since the baker doesn’t have to factor in the construction of the cake.

I say cake.  I just can’t get behind the whole wedding cupcake thing, although it does work for some morning or daytime weddings.  To me, cupcakes seem more appropriate for a kids birthday party or a shower than a wedding.  They’re extremely popular now, though, so I know many people out there disagree!

I am having a cake (no fondant) but my sister had cupcakes with a small cake for them to cut, similar to what simpleandchic: posted.

I think we’ll be doing cake, but going with something relatively light (not a fondant fan either). We’re hoping to go with King’s Hawaiian in Torrance; their prices are great, and the cake is more of a Chinese bakery style (sponge cake with whipped cream style icing). Plus FH is from Hawaii so we’d love to do some funky flavor from there, like the haupia (coconut pudding) filling.
