You can add flavors to cupcakes, it’s a personal preference.  The cupcakery that I’m in love with here does strawberry shortcake cupcakes with strawberry filling that are amazing!!  I’ve never been to a mini cupcake wedding, only 1 wedding with regular sized cupcakes…but I thought about the mini ones myself!  I’m undecided at the moment, but I’m not having a formal wedding (if that makes a difference).  We’re ordering 2 flavors for sentimental reasons, but I suppose you could do even more if you wanted.  Ours are vanilla with chocolate frosting (my favorite), and lemon chiffon (FI’s favorite).

We are doing cupcakes! We chose to do regular size cupcakes and mini cupcakes.  For our bigger ones we choose 4 more traditional flavors.  For the mini cupcakes we chose 8 different flavors.  We figured with a lot of flavors people are going to want try more, so it would be better to do some mini.  I did find that doing cupcakes over cake is more expensive…

@Valdrine:  We are going to do three tiers, one big one with the regular size cupcakes, and a mini cupcake tier on either side.  It was more expensive because of the amount we ended up ordering…We couldnt choose between the flavors and thought of how much we wanted to eat them that we order enough for everone to have a regular cupcake and two mini.  If we had gotten a one flavor cake we probably would have order 1.5 serving per person.

@Valdrine:  We tasted at 2 places (Sisters McMullen and Tiffany’s) and went with full size cupcakes . The cupcakes were less expensive than a traditional cake, at least with the decorations and baker we chose (Tiffany’s). You can have fillings in the cupcakes, we did. We had 4 cupcake flavors (chocolate, vanilla, lemon-raspberry and pineapple upside down) and a 6 inch cake for cutting (that was technically a fifth flavor-chocolate-coconut, but the guests weren’t served the cake and we took the leftovers home).

We’re doing regular sized cupcakes 3 flavors red velvet, chocolate, and lemon. My topper cake for cutting will be pinapple (my favorite). My guy doesn’t like fondant he thinks it’s “handled” too much so we went with the cupcakes which turns out to be 2-3 dollars less than per cupcake than per slice of cake.

We are having approximately 200 guests, and will be ordering 175 regular size cupcakes and 50 mini cupcakes. We are picking I think 6 flavors, some with filling, some without. Its all a matter of preference.

We are doing both wedding cake & cupcakes. [each place setting will have a cupcake on a cupcake holder, and there will be more cupcakes at the candy buffet].

We are going to be doing regular chocolate cupcakes for each place setting, and a number of differant ones at the candy buffet. Probably chocolate, vanilla, chocolate fudge, rainbow, red velvet & carrot cake.
