my mom runs her own wedding cake business, and i have helped her out a bit, so i have an opinion on this one 🙂 cupcakes are always a hit and they are so cute!! in order to keep the cake cutting tradition, you could still do the cupcake tower but have the top layer (or top 2 layers, if you want to save the top for your anniversary – is that common? we do it in my family) be a traditional cake that you can cut 🙂

They definitely look so cute!  As a guest, I would be so excited to get my own little cake!

Have you priced them yet?  I was watching Amazing Wedding Cakes on WEtv and there was an episode where they made those.  Based on the amount of labor it took to cover them with fondant, I would think they are very pricey.  I imagine the cakes on multiple stands would be more budget friendly.  Great ideas though!

Ohh they are so cute! I am right there with you about loving cupcakes and mini cakes.

Have you thought about if the future hubby is really really wanting a traditional cake you could do a dessert bar kind of thing with mini cakes or cupcakes?

I’ll cross my fingers for you that pricing them turns out good.

I loved the mini cakes idea too!  But when I priced them out, they were so much more expensive than the cupcakes.  🙁

I love cupcakes too!

Have you thought about doing a cupcake tower with a cake on top of it?

Or – instead of cutting the cake – just feed eachother a cupcake!
