We’re having cupcakes, top tier cutting cake and a grooms cake. An Avengers one!

Husband and I are BIG dessert people. We had four flavour of cupcakes (Chocolate with Espresso icing, Lemon with lemon buttercream, Red velvet with cream cheese frosting and vanilla bean with salted caramel icing), then we had a groom’s cakes, with was a butter peacan with butter cream frosting, which was a huge camo coloured cupcake. On top of that we had a four flavour cheese cake bar.

The next day one of DH’s great-aunts had the audacity to tell me that there was ‘too much dessert’ at our wedding. I was confused as I had never heard those words in that order/combination before and had no idea what she meant. I told her if that is the only thing that there was to complain about we much have thrown one hell of a party.

Our guests loved the selection and that they were able to sample as many or as few as they liked. We also had boxes for people to wrap up cupcakes to take home.

@sassyshoeskate:  I think the groom’s cake cupcakes will be a great idea! It’s not something that will be missed, so if things get too hectic before the wedding you don’t absolutely have to do it.

@Soon2BD-CBee:  oops, sorry I realized that the photo was taken before all the cupcakes were out. Something that I just wanted to throw at you, is that we also did mini-cupcakes as well as the full sized, that way our guests were able to try all the flavours with out all the waste.

We will be doing a small round cake for cutting at the top of the stand, and the rest of the 5 tiers with mini cupcakes. I loooove this bakery.

@PoppyH:  mini cupcakes sound brilliant. We are going have 2 types, 1 with champagne coloured frosting  and a red rose on top and then the other way around.
