I would not just have the guests randomly receive a flavor.  I would see this causing issues with people not liking what they receive or even having allergies.  Can you allow people to go get their cupcakes at the appropriate time?  Or if they’re being passed out by the waitstaff, can they just request which kind they would like?  And is there anyway to narrow it down a bit more as far as flavors so there are more of each flavor?

Do they need to be served? Can the tower be set up at a table with a legend to determine what flavors there are, and have the guests choose their own?

Keep in mind, with so many delicious varieties your guests are likely going to want to taste several and may take more than the 1 or 2 cupcakes you’re expecting them to take.  Then you may run out.

I would just have a few cupcake towers set up with menu cards in front of each describing the flavors. Try to include flavors together that are obviously different by looking at them. For example, red velvet, dark chocolate, vanilla, and pistachio together instead of dark chocolate, mocha, cookies & creme, and chcoolate raspberry truffle.


I also kinda like your option #2, but am afraid it could be challenging to stay organized.
