    One or the other, I think – my friend had both and not only was it overkill, but it was a waste of food and money!

    I love my cupcakes – LOVE! – but for a wedding I love the traditional-ness of one cake.  I know cupcakes are super trendy right now, though!

    The cake bakers I had to choose from wanted a stupid amount of money (starting price of $800, that would be a no) so I picked the baker that offered cupcakes.  She does a small cutting cake for the bride and groom along with the cupcakes.  I like that with cupcakes you can have a variety of flavours, when at a wedding with cupcakes I share mine with FI so I can try more flavours!

    As a guest I prefer cake, but I really don’t think it matters all that much. What do YOU want?

    I plan on doing cupcake and am soooo excited with my decision. I’m planning to do cupcakes for all, but also a super tiny cake for us to cut or to keep for our anniversary or something, not totally figured out yet 🙂

    Also, almost all wedding cakes have FONDANT, which I and many people I know think is disgusting and don’t eat it – so it’s more expensive, and not as tasty? No thank you. Cupcakes almost never have fondant! (unless you’re weird and want that on a cupcake lol…)

    @SoontobeMrsFisette:  I like cupcakes because there is no cake cutting fee and no one’s grubby paws on my food 😛

    We’re doing cupcakes! Does your venu have a cake cutting fee? that’s a way of saving money if you do cupcakes 🙂

    @MrsPanda99:  Teehee! You are right. They are cute and adorable. I find slices of cake easier to eat though. 🙂 (In other words, I make less of a mess of myself, haha!)

    I also just love the look of decorated wedding cakes! But again, these are just my own arbitrary personal preferences. 🙂

    We had a buttercream cake that was smoothed just as nicely as fondant, so it can be done!

    @Gemstone:  That’s true. There is as much icing as cake and it can be awfully hard to fit in your mouth, lol. I am notorious for spilling everything on myself so I guess I have just gotten used to it *sigh*

    @pixiecat:  We did a similar deal, small cake for him and me and cupcakes for everyone else. Lots of flavors and options and WAY less mess and fuss than a cake. Hope everyone likes it!

    We see going to do a cupcake tower with a small cake for cutting at the top. Best of both worlds!
