Could you cut your cake as soon as you get in the reception?  I’ve been to a few weddings like this and it worked great.  All your guests are focused on you anyway, your photographer is ready to go.  All you do is come in, do your ceremonial “first slice” and then guests can get cupcakes when they get their plates of food.  I’d be happy to make some suggestions for you sign- coud you tell us what flavors you are using?  It would make it a little easier to come up with something

Put the “cake” in a corner with stanchions around it to keep people away from it until it’s time to eat the cupcakes?

For the “legend”, you could create a picture that is basically a duplicate of your cupcake stand, but instead of cupcakes , you give the name and description of the cupcake on each layer. Place it in a frame on the table next to the cupcake.

Can your caterer wait to bring out the sweets until it’s time to move onto dessert? That’s what we did. The setup was already there, just not filled. Then when it was time to get dessert, they brought out our cake and the desserts (we did mini desserts too) and put them on the display.

Could you put the cupcakes on the opposite side of the room or something so that it doesn’t seem like part of the buffet? The suggestion of cutting the cake right before dinner is a great idea, too. Then people won’t have to get up and out of their seats twice.

@out4answers:  Yes, ours was buffet style for the desserts too, though we did a plated dinner.

So during dinner, the cake was not displayed and the setup for the dessert bar was out/up, but not filled with the desserts. Then after dinner, then caterer coordinated with my coordinator/DJ and they brought out the desserts for the dessert bar/buffet and immediately after that, we did the cake so everything was fresh and chilled (not weepy) and no one swiped anything ahead of time.

We’ll be having cupcakes too. I’m thinking about either making flags (with each color/pattern denoting a flavor – indicated via a menu on the table) or a sort of picture menu. I’ve also seen menus like this look a lot classier if that’s more your vibe. We’re a bit more laid-back so almost all of the examples I’ve found have had a bit of diy/rustic flair to them.
