    We aren’t!  Our venue has a dessert that they provide with dinner.  If you choose not to do it, they charge a $2pp cutting fee, so since neither of us like or care about cake, we figured we would save our money!

    We didn’t want to go overboard with our cake, knowing we’re not big on the cake eating, nor spend hundreds of dollars on a wedding cake. So our compromise was a mini-wedding cake – 3 tiers with the base 6″, 2nd tier 4″ and the top a cupcake size (serves 16-20) and we’ll have cake pictures. And for the rest of the dessert selection, we arranged for a dessert bar with a variety of mini-desserts.

    we’re doing cupcakes, but no cake cutting. i’m not sure if we’ll do the cake tower yet or not. i do think cake stands are very pretty so i wouldn’t mind having it just to buy or make a pretty stand.

    We are considering this, but it’s undecided.  FI is not a big cake/dessert person, yet I’m a total sweet tooth.  I’m trying to decide if I’m going to miss the ‘ceremony’/tradition of cutting the cake with hubby.

    If dessert was included with my reception, that would greatly influence me towards not having a cake!

    we’re doing cupcakes!  They are my favorites.  I’m sure we’ll cut a cupcake at some point too- but definitely no cake!

    I love chocolate cake – I have to have it.. now I have to figure out how to keep my own personal half gallon of ice cream frozen in a venue with no kitchen 🙂  you can’t eat cake without ice cream!

    I voted “undecided” because we are having a cake and pie (we’re getting married in apple pie country) buffet, but won’t have any kind of traditional wedding cake. We haven’t decided if we will cut one of the small cakes or not. While I love a good photo op, we definitely don’t want to the whole smashing thing, and it may not be worth the effort.

    We are doing a cake for us and his groom’s cake will be ice cream instead.  He loves ice cream so I’ve decided to do an ice cream bar with different toppings.  I think now a-days people do what they want to and makes you happy.

    We’re having a cake, but I’m really torn as to weather or not we should provide more dessert. The cake is good, but desserts are kind of my specialty. It doesn’t seem fitting to only have 1 dessert. I’m also feeling creme brulee or a yummy gelato.

    We’re doing cupcakes, but will have a small tier of cake to use for a cake cutting. I was ok with not doing a cake cutting, but Fiance was not. So I am going to try and make a cute monogram for that tier of cake.

    I am making apple pies and my sister is making her awesome tiramisu.  Neither the hubs or myself really care for cake, pie is way better.  Might also throw in some cheesecake and brownies, all of our favorite desserts!  If you set stuff up beautifully no one will miss the big ol’ wedding cake!

    We are doing a tower or mini cheese cakes and chocolate mouse cakes.  We will have a littl cake 7″wide on top for us to cut and then we will just leave the cakes there for people to help themselves too.    We are mostly still just doing the cake cutting for my Future Mother-In-Law as I’ve taken so much that she wanted out of the wedding reception (receiving line, first dances, speeches) and also I like cake and my FH likes cheese cake so it seemed a good compromise.
