I think there was a thread on this recently… with pics and everything…

For flavors I did:

vanilla + strawberry flavored icing

chocolate + dark chocolate icing

chocolate + peanut butter icing

 vanilla + chocolate icing

Those sound yummy!  I like those flavors.  I think it is a good idea to do cupcakes!  In some ways it may be easier for the guests to be able to just grab a cupcake and there is no cake cutting!

Our 6 inch top cake is going to be carrot with cream cheese frosting (just for us).

Then for cupcakes we will have:

chocoalte with vanilla frosting

vanilla with vanilla frosting

funfetti with vanilla frosting


I got a tall tiered cake stand, so there will be the illusion of a wedding cake.

We’re getting cupcakes!  We ordered a cupcake tree from cupcaketree.com.  We are having a small cutting cake for the two of us.  Our flavors are: Twixie (chocolate cake, shortbread, and frosting w/caramel like a Twix bar), Chocolate Chip with chocolate ganache and vanilla icing, chocolate with chocolate ganache and chocolate frosting, vanilla with vanilla, and we still have one more flavor to decide. 🙂

I have no idea what flavors yet, but here are some of my inspiration pics:

We’re going to have one semi-tall stand with only a couple of tiers and then a small cake on top for us to cut. Then we’re going to put the rest on scattered platters I am DIYing after this Bee’s inspiration:

I think cupcakes are fun and if you like them, go for it.  I’ve been to weddings with cupcakes instead of cake and people enjoyed them.  It was garden-themed and all the cupcakes were decorated with different flowers made out of icing.  Very cute and visually interesting!!

i think cupcakes instead of cake is a great idea!  red velvet with cream cheese frosting is always a crowd pleaser!
