    @LovebirdsSC:  Holy wow! People are dumb. I’m hoping that by keeping the cupcakes on the same tier as the cake, it will be considered the same thing. Then again, you never know what sort of nonsense moronic guests can be capable of 😛

    And keep in mind, all, that there is no rule against using a knife and fork to eat your cupcake Wink  That’s certainly what I plan on doing!!!

    I would be happy with either cake or cupcakes at a wedding.

    I hardly ever eat the cake at weddings. Not because I don’t like cake (quite the opposite), but I’m just so stuffed! Plus cake is kind of heavy and I just want to go dancing! I go back to eat if I’m hungry much later during the night but then I’m not really seating down to eat, so cupcakes are perfect!

    We over ordered the cupcakes for our wedding, but it didn’t matter. We gave a dozen to the staff working the event and had to go’s for our guests with a dozen leftover for my husband and I. We did the cupcake and cutting cake thing as well with a black bottom cheesecake. And yes, I look forward to cake at weddings.

    I went to several weddings last summer (in addition to my own) and every time people were sitting around saying, “I can’t wait for the cake.”

    Our cake definitely got eaten.  It was delicious!

    As a guest, I actually spend the entire reception looking forward to the cake.  I always eat it unless it’s bad cake.  I get disappointed when there’s a beautiful, elaborately decorated cake that turns out to be dry and tasteless.

    I prefer a slice of cake to a cupcake because it’s less messy.  But I love cupcakes, too.

    I more apt to take a cake home I rarely eat cake. However it’s hard to judge, I’ve been to weddings where the cake was gone, I been to weddings where barely anyone ate any. I guess it depends on other factors like where you cake is and when you serve it. I think in this case you can easily do a small top teir and have cupcakes for the bottom layers.

    I prefer cake at a wedding, but it sure wouldn’t make or break my evening to eat a cupcake!

    We are having both. a regular size wedding cake and since I’m gluten free, I’m having my baker make 2 dozen gluten free cupcakes (a couple other people are also gluten free).

    I prefer cake!  We actually ordered too much (3-6” rounds) and had an entire one left over! We served the cake as dessert.

    There are two things I look forward to at weddings: champagne and cake. 

    Cupcakes are ok, but I LOVE CAKE.  I spent a lot of money on GOOD CAKE.

    I love cake. Almost everyone I know loves cake at weddings too. Unless there is an astronomical amount of cake leftover (ordering enough for 500 when you only have 30 in attendance, etc), people will devour it. Any cake that isn’t eaten at the wedding, they will take home and/or you can take home with you to eat after your honeymoon (many people actually hate year-old frozen cake but will eat it on their wedding night as a midnight snack and/or when they return from their honeymoon while it;s still somewhat fresh as long as it is stored in an airtight container).
