I would do just one cupcake per person if you are doing other desserts.  We are having a candy bar for our favors, next to the candy bar will be a table w/ the cupcakes on them all packaged up to go, and then our caterer is also providing a dessert w/ the meal – that’s a lot of sweets!!!  But we are also cutting into a 6in round cake.

I would just to 2 different designs since you aren’t having many cupcakes – if you were having a bigger party (say 125-150) I would say go w/ 5 designs, but since you are only having 25 it will look nicer (in my opinion) to do just 1 or 2 designs.  Also, definitely have the cake to cut into!!  It will be nice for pictures and the small cake will be able to tie in the two desgins you pick.  We are having 3 different cupcake flavors for ours (all with the same design) and then the cake will be a totally different flavor (my favorite).

I wish I could see the pics but my computer at work doesn’t load all pics!

I went to a wedding where they had mini-cupcakes, and they were fantastic!!  She offered four varieties, but you could five if the designs you picked out for the full-sized cupcakes could be translated to a smaller scale.  Most people had three or four mini-cupcakes, so you get to make more 🙂

Also, I support the idea of a four or six inch round cake for you two to cut.  Cutting a cupcake might be a little difficult, and think of the pictures, too.  A slightly larger cake will show up better than a cupcake in photos, and you can decorate it in a complementary way so that it looks nice with your other desserts.

Have fun, and happy planning!

As long as the designs work well together, I would do 5 designs on 5 cupcakes! If it would be overkill, I’d stick with one or two.  

As for a cake, I would totally suggest cutting into a small cake (or giant cupcake a la your new idea!) because I think it’s a cute tradition & it makes for nice photos! 🙂
