(Closed) Macaroon and Chocolate Covered Strawberries BUT NO CAKE! Would you be sad?

  • poll: what should i do with the cake?

    Get the small 2 tier cake and let guest serve themselves if they want (PLUS $200)

    Get the small 2 tier cake, get a sheet cake and pay cake cutting fee (PLUS $445)

    Forget the cake, macaroons and chocolate covered strawberry will be fine. ($0

    Get the small 2 tier cake, cut and box. Do not serve it if it is not enough for all

    Im biased for cake! Your chosen cake is gorgeous!

    However its you guys special day, i’m sure your guests won’t really care either way about your dessert choices as long as their is some type of dessert.

    I say do whatever will make you and your Fiance happiest.

    @Aquaria:  oh my gosh. i thought they were the same thing!! after your comment i googled it. for other bees who don’t know macaroons and macarons are indeed not two ways to spell the same thing – theyre different!! who knew! (iin a rhetorical way, aquaria did obviously)

    My only pause would be that if you are cutting a cake there’s an expectation that guests will get the cake too.  So guests may be wondering where’s their cake.  Also I agree with others that if you donn’t have enough to feed your entire group best not to serve any of the cake.  Would mini cupcakes be an option on the same layer tiers that you have your other sweets on to match?  Often times, mini cupcakes are much more cost effective too.

    @lstyle25:  FYI

    macaron (French deliciousness):       macaroon (coconut no-no):

    I came in ready to shoot down the idea of macaroons (since I despise coconut desserts). BUT I love macarons. So, I think this will be just fine!

    Can you have a family member or bridal party member cut the cake slices?

    @lstyle25: It’s an easy (and common) mistake. I am only touchy about it if you promise me macarons and I get macaroons! 😛

    • macaroon = rhymes with loon (ma-ca-ROON)
    • macaron = rhymes with Don, swallow the r (MAC-a-ron)

    Can you get some super mini cupcakes also? That way those who want cake can have it but you still have the macaroons and strawberries. 

    I don’t like cake so I’d be fine!

    Yum macarons! I would skip the cake altogether – as a guest I would be disappointed if I saw cake and then didn’t get any, but if there was no cake and I got strawberries and macarons I would be very happy 🙂 

    What’s the point in doing a cake-cutting photo if you don’t have cake? Instead maybe you could feed each other a macaron or something?

    Skip the cake cutting.   You can pretend to cut the macaron tower instead.   That will bring focus on your yummy treats!
