Eh, the cake isn’t a big deal to me either. If FH wasn’t so keen on having a cake I’d totally be doing individual cupcakes and everyone gets one. I think having them plated and served up is a great idea.

Another option that I saw at a wedding that worked out great was each table had an individual cake – so the couple went round the cut the first slice of each cake and gave it to the couple on the table that had been together the longest – it was a great chance for everyone to get a cake cutting photo and everyone could have as much or as little cake as they wanted.

No, cake was definitely something I could have cared less about. We spent like $130 on cake for 120 people. It just wasn’t a priority, really. I have yet to be blown away by tasty AND pretty wedding cake to the point I don’t think anyone else expected it either.

I looked at those individual cakes per table and they were still like $25/cake. With 18 tables that would have been too expensive for us but I REALLY liked the idea.

I didn’t care about the huge cake either.  We looked into cupcakes but ended up doing more of a “cake buffet” with each cake on a different pedestal stand.

We are doing a cake display too, so we will actually have a small wedding cake for the bridal, some cupcakes and then an array of desserts and scattered candies. We are doing the “cake cutting” and then inviting everyone to dig in. I wanted a chance to use some more of our graphics in the decor. A single tiered cake on a stand isn’t much to work with. Were focusing on color, light, and the “skyline” of the cake stands against the skyline of the city beyond.

We are doing no cake. I pretty much realized that I either want a fabulous, show stopping cake or none at all. Because none of the bakers in my destination location have show stopping skill, I am going with a dessert buffet.

Yes, people will think you are weird. But you are still feeding them a yummy and conventional treat. It isn’t as if you are foregoing cake for a display of pickled herring. So the mental process will be, “huh, this is different…yummy”!
