So I’m having a consultation soon with a bakery I love. But, I’m still undecided if I want to do a cupcake tower with “our cake” (you know the one you freeze for a year) on top, or a full on cake. I’m inviting 100 people but honestly only expeting 70 to attend. Also I am having an outdoor wedding, its Aug 24th in Southern Califronia, so I worry about the cake melting and all that. Anyone do the cupcake tower? Or have any good pics of one used at a wedding? I looked online and keep finding them just being used at babyshowers and birthdays :/

- Wedding: November 2013 - St. Augustine Beach, FL
Have you checked Pinterest? Lots of wedding cupcake towers on there. We’re probably doing one for our wedding in November.
As for freezing your top tier cake and eating at your one year anniversary, most brides say it’s digusting. Ask your baker if they will do a one year anniversay cake for a small fee next year so it’s the same cake but it’s fresh. If you must freeze the top tier, here are tips to keep it as fresh as possible: http://www.sweetwishescakes.com/To%20Freeze%20Or%20Not%20To%20Freeze.pdf

I’m afraid I love a cake at a wedding.

@livingthelifemommyandwife: date twin! We’re doing cake and cupcakes, the cake is going to be three tieres most likely 10 in 8 in and 6 in, all different flavors and then we’re also having a bunch of mini cupcakes on the side so everyone can try the different flavors without stuffing themselves with cake, also there are alot of children in the family so cupcakes are easier for them.

Here is my cupcake tower at my wedding – we DIY the stand and kept it super simple and clean.

Good ideas, and yes I kind of thought the freezing sounded gross LOL It is a family friendly wedding (we are literally getting a bounce house for all the kids) I think I’m just going to do both, the bakery said they will give us a good deal as long as we dont want really ornate cupcakes, just its windy where I live and we’re doing this outside, the less food that needs a plate the better in my opinion. 🙂
