    Sorry, but I have no idea what a cake pop is (I have never heard of them in Australia). Is a caramel apple like a toffee apple?? Toffee apples are hard to eat/ messy so I would go with whatever is easier to eat…

    Both sound great! Are you having cake at your wedding? If you are, I would definitely do caramel apples. I’m not a huge fan of overly sweet stuff, though, so I would say caramel apples anyway :) .

    I would love both, but I voted for cake pops only because they are not as messy and also some of the older people may not be able to eat the caramel apples :-)

    Caramel apples sound like they fit the feel of your wedding better.  Cake pops sound awfully interesting though… I’ve never heard of them.  I think as a guest I might go for the cake rather than the apple.  I take way too long to eat apples!  Hopefully other people will weigh in.  I think I might be in the minority.

    If you are already having cake then it might be good to go with the apples.  It will add something unique and the people who don’t like to get messy or hate apples will still have your normal cake to eat.

    I LOVE carmel apples but I’d vote cake pops.  Carmel apples are pretty messy to eat so it definitely isn’t what I’d reach for when in nice clothes at a wedding.

    I voted for the apples because it will give you a uniqueness factor and fit in with what you sound like you are going for. but I would have them in like a clear wrapping (like they do at a fair) so that people can enjoy them but maybe take them home to do so..i would  love them but not want to eat one at a wedding when I’m dressed up.

    @Fall_In_Love22:  Do both, for those that have a sweet tooth great idea!  Many times at wedding you don’t get the fun food rather grown up food.  The idea of caramel apples and cake pops are awesome. I just made myself a chocolate covered apple with walnuts and boy was it great and healthy. I think?Laughing

    I’d prefer caramel apples. Would you also have plain caramel for the traditionalists?

    I love caramel apples, but they are seriously hard to eat without making a mess! They might make nice favors if they were wrapped and meant to be taken home and not eaten in fancy dress?
