  • 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

    I have never tried a Macaron and have always wanted to so I would be super excited!!  I would just be sure to have a variety of flavors to choose from…ive looked at a few bakery websites and they do have some odd flavors that might not be for everyone…

    I do really like the macaron tower on top of a cake….very cool!  But with chocolate covered strawberries and macarons, if you really want cake somewhere I would have cupcakes.  It would almost be like you have a whole desset table.  I just went to my cousins wedding where they did not have a cake so instead of a cake cutting they just fed eachother chocolate covered strawberries…it was really cute =)

    If it were JUST macarons, I would be disappointed but only because I’m allergic to nuts. Since you have chocolate covered strawberries, I would be happy as can be! (Yum!)

    However, I would skip the cake altogether. It would be a tease to watch someone cut cake but then have none be served!

    I like eating cake but would not complain or think anything if there was none (and there were macarons and choc covered strawberries). I don’t like macarons that much but they are fun/cute.

    The cake you chose is gorgeous with the ombre! Could you get an even smaller version of it (and just cut and box and take it home). 

    But if you get the 2 tier version then I would just leave it with the other desserts for self serve – that way only the people who really want it will take it and if it runs out, oh well, I don’t think it’s a big deal.

    Also, I think it’s more of a tease/confusing to cut cake but offer NONE. Whereas offerring it but it not being enough isn’t as big of a deal to me.

    But if the cake is reallyyy really small like literally for 6-8 people then I would say cut it and take it home only.

    I personally don’t like macarons (although I love macaroons!), so I would probably be disappointed if by the time my table was called up to the dessert table, all the cake had gone.  I would feel that the bride and groom hadn’t made sure that there was enough dessert to go around.  On the other hand, if there was no cake to start with, I would just think “oh, I don’t like the dessert – never mind, I’ll just have a coffee instead”.  So I think it would be best if you either have no cake, have a cake small enough for just you and your husband, or have enough cake for everyone.

    The macaroon tower is a brilliant idea, I love the strawbs too.

    Cake is overrated. Macarons are AMAZING and so are chocolate covered strawberries.

    If you have a tower of the Macaroons, you can still have a mock cutting of the cake for pictures / tradition.

    I will be happy with any sugar fix.
