    @Lips: I don’t know the best way to serve them…we had a cupcake tree, and had different flavors on different levels, so our guests could choose whichever they wanted. I really just wanted to comment to say that vanilla with berry frosting sounds crazy delicious!

    I would put an assortment on each table and include a little placard that states what they are. You might have the decorate them a little differently so people can easilly pick out which is which

    We are having TEN awesome flavors! We found a local business that makes these incredible gourmet cupcakes (flavors like S’Mores, guiness cake with chocolate ganache filling,  triple salted carmel, etc.). They set the cupcakes up on the table on several raised, clear plastic platforms sorted by flavor. We are using mini chalkboards to label all of the different flavors.

    If you’re worried about having enough of the good flavors and less of the “undesirables”, talk to your caterer/cake person about which ones are the most popular and what they’d recommend per flavor of the options you like 😉

    Bon apetite!

    I’ve never been served cake (or cupcakes) before. At the weddings I’ve been to, people stand in line to get the piece of cake (or cupcake) they want. Last year I went to a wedding with cupcakes and just walked up, looked at the different ones and chose what I liked. They were all good though 🙂

    we’re dong ice cream cupcakes from coldstone and they have 3 flavors. We’re renting a cupcake tree and putting the flavors on each tier. I figure if someone doesn’t get one flavor, they’ll still be happy with another… who doesn’t like ice cream and ridiculous amounts of chocolate?!

    I think displaying them would be the best option but i have to admit i would be bummed if the other flavors ran out and i got stuck with carrot (nothing against carrot cake im just allergic to carrots….) but if you have it set out i would know i would have to get my but up and get one right after the cake cutting or deal with no cupcake

    Let them eat cake! (cup, that is). Have a display then let the guests choose their own flavor after the cake cutting.

    as an aside. I read an article yesterday about a slacker mom’s dictionary that made me laugh;

    Definition “”cupfakes: When moms buy cupcakes to bring to school and rough up the icing so they look homemade.

    I’ve been to one wedding that had cupcakes and they had them on a separate table on a cupcake tree and spread around the table.  They had five flavours and there was a different colour flower, along with a colour code chart in a frame on the table.   The couple also had a small cake atop the cupcake tower and they did their cake cutting there, after which, guests were invited to help themselves to cupcakes.  Everyone knew not to grab a cupcake before the time…. sort of like you wouldn’t go over to the cake table and stick your finger in the frosting of a traditional wedding cake!   I definitely don’t think you need to serve them as it gets way too complicated and you’ll probably have a lot of waste.
