We did it! Hubby and I had a small cake for us, and then jumbo cupcakes for everone else. It was a HUGE hit. One couple who attended were engaged and actually loved it so much decided they wanted it for their wedding.

 

 

 

enjoying the cupcakes :p We got a few shots like this of different guests. Love it!

This is my inspiration! This couple opted for a unique tower of cupcakes topped with colorful gerbera daisies.

We’re doing this as well…and maybe we’re a tad ambitious but we plan on making everything ourselves…I keep thinking about the satisfaction of eating cake and cupcakes we made for our own wedding…or I’m crazy πŸ™‚  I had a lapse and thought about ordering a cake, but when I started looking at the cost, yikes bikes!  It was a no brainer for us.

Future Sister-In-Law did this and it was a huge hit! We loved her cupcakes because they had different fillings inside and it was a big surprise… Sadly tho once you fell in love with a certain one you had no idea how to find it again if you wanted to share that same flavor with someone else…

@Recesssionista- Thanks! That cake topper thing made it really hard to actually cut the cake though :p I did love it though, except that it wasn’t the right color! I don’t know where that peachy-orangy color came from! I said light pink and ivory and I got that lol Ooooh well
