    I choose option B and leave the cake. Be weary if getting fondant…I had a fondant cake made before and it tasted like cardboard (the icing fondant part). I have heard of people making marshmellow and white powder fondant..but I say it is a MUST to SAMPLE or you might be disappointed!

    Luckily I sampled and the cake was gorgeous…but tasted SOOO NASTY that I decided…ok back to the “drawing table”!

    @suprsweetTo me option B is by far the best being on a VERY TIGHT BUDGET MYSELF and Paying for my wedding myself (of course with my FI). To me it wouldn’t matter what people thought as long as it makes you happy. Why not save hundreds of dollars esp when you are paying yourself!? Plus I do not think it will be weird at all or anything.

    You don’t need to peel it off.  The slice should be plated so it’s on it’s side, and you can just cut out the cake without touching the fondant.

    I know lots of brides like to do cupcakes now to avoid the cake cutting fee. 🙂

    I would do B.  I wouldn’t miss the cake if there were other desserts.  Just put your cake to cut on a little stand so it’s emphasized a little.  I wouldn’t just put it on the table, make it stand out a little bit.  Or can they do what people do for cupcakes?  Put the cutting one at the top and have the other desserts below it?

    I think C would be weird…because I would be going around looking for and/or waiting for some cake and then I would never ever get any! Smile

    Option B!   We had a little cake in a huge room – but it didn’t look silly!! We had it set up on a 3 tier display with cupcakes underneath, but you could just as easily put the strawberries or other desert items on the tiers instead.  It can definitely be set up in a way that it won’t look like a lonely little cake in a big hall 🙂        By The Way – the chocolate covered strawberries were a HUUUUGE hit at mine – they were gobbled up right away – no one will care that you’re not having a big expensive cake, so don’t feel pressured to spend that much money on something you don’t feel super strongly about!!

    I think B for sure, and even if you have a small cake, if you want to display it still, have a tall cake stand and pretty table and no one will think about it being short.
