    We’re doing Cake Pops! I’m doing a big dessert buffet instead of a sit down meal, so I’ll have these as an option, as well as our ‘wedding cake’ to slice into.

    I love your cake pop idea. I also think you should have cake..maybe you can skip the tiered cake and just serve sheet cake to cut on cost.

    I voted for cake slices because I think you should have at least some ‘regular’ cake, but you could do half and half cake slices and cake pops. The only reason I voted for cake slices is because I love them myself so my opinion is completely subjective!

    I think your cake pops are really cute.  As a guest I wouldn’t mind eating those instead of a regular slice.  But as a bride I would still want to have a whole cake to show off, take nice pictures of, and then so the traditional cake cutting.  I don’t see why you can’t have both, and use a small cake to cut into.

    To cut costs and do these as something different, you could do cake pops and just still have a single tier sheet or round cake to do the cake cutting and have cake cut up that way if anyone wants it

    Do whatever’s cheapest. Cake is cake and nobody will mind.

    I think you’d have to make upwards of 3 cake pops per person, though. Sheet cake would likely be cheaper….Sams Club/Costco is like $15 for a sheet cake that feeds 50. Can’t get a lot cheaper than that

    @brideatbeach My cake budget is really small too.  I’m not sure what I’m doing but some ideas are having a baker (or myself) make only one tier of cake for the bride and groom cake cutting.  The cake could be only one tier or many fake tiers, with all but one tier being made up of foam and decorated to look like a real cake.  Then that cake can be whisked away behind the scenes and a cheap $20 sheet cake will be cut up and given to guests.  I just wanted to give you these other ideas if you are interested.

    Cake pops would be fine but will it be cheaper to have enough for everybody to have at least 2?  We had a friend make our cake and it turned out beautifully. Maybe you could do a sheet cake for those who want more cake?
