So I got an amazing deal from someone who works out of her home here, who’s making me a three-tiered cake with cupcakes to supplement (my fiance wanted the cupcakes and I wanted the cake, so this is a good compromise!)
Problem is, I’m not sure what to do about serving it to my guests… The cake feeds about 75 and then we’ll have about 70-75 cupcakes… How do I decide who gets what? Or should I leave it to the guests to decide, and have them displayed somewhere (but then the guests have to serve themselves, and I don’t know if the reception hall will want to do that… plus, they said the cake will be sitting in front of the head table until it’s cut… will it look weird with cupcakes there too??) Any ideas about what I can do?
Thanks a bunch 🙂

we are doing both as well. the cupcakes will be on a stand on both sides of the cake and any extra will just be set on the table. we are only serving cake to the wedding party cus ours is small but what about letting them serve themselves? if the venue has an issue they can take orders from each table and serve them.

I think you may be worrying a little too much about the aesthetics of it. However, with only 70-75 guests, it should be efficient (with better presentation) if they’re served, instead of it being a free for all up at the cake/cupcake table. Good luck!!

This might be too late for you, but in case anyone else is looking I’ll throw it out there. My SIL had both, she had the cupcakes frosted in spring colors to match her theme and put in a basket to look like a basket of flowers as her centerpieces. Most people didn’t touch them until after dinner, but I don’t know if they had cake too (I had neither…I was in the bar and missed it LOL)

I would say just to have it set out and let people choose. It will all work out fine. People might have a preference, but in the end no one will care which they get.
