I think you can have both. Why not order a small cake (for about 20 pp) and some cupcakes (depending on the number of guests)?

That way you can have a cake to cut for the pictures and cupcakes in different flavors, so your guest can pick what they want. I think some good flavors are plain vanilla, chocolate, red velvet and maybe a fruity one, like strawberry or blueberry.

We’re doing a cake with two flavors: vanilla with chocolate fudge filling and chocolate with fresh strawberries filling. 

We’re giving out cookies as favors, so doing cupcakes would be silly in our case.

We’re doing a traditional black cake/rum cake for cutting (2-3 tiers) and cupcakes as out favors – red velvet, vanilla, chocolate and maybe one more flavor.

We decided to go with a small cutting cake (feeds 4-6 people), and the rest cupcakes. Our cake is going to be peanut butter (my FI and my favorite flavor) with butter cream frosting, and the cupcakes are Pink Champagne, Salted Caramel, Guinness and Coconut with cream cheese frosting

I’m following this. We just met with our cake lady and she said name any flavors and she’ll make them. We have four total layers, I know one is going to vanilla cake with strawberry filling cause that’s my favorite. We just need three more and it’s like picking a needle out of a haystack. Haha. So I’m interested to see what everyone else says….

@navybride0428:  I love your flavours! 

I make cakes for weddings a lot (and cuppies and cake pops). Let me tell you, vanilla and chocolate and red velvet are SO overdone! I know people like to pick generic flavours so that people will like them, but come on! There are a million flavour combos out there people!

 

boston cream, Chai latteé, pink champagne, orange Dreamsicle, cherry bomb, key lime, there are so many unique flavours!

We’re doing a mini dessert bar, but we get an anniversary cake for free, and, same thing, we get to choose whatever we want. So we are going with an almond cake with cherry filling. No real reason, except we are not really “cake people” and this is my favorite type of cupcake.
