    Some venues still charge the cake cutting fee even if you have cupcakes, so make sure you find out about that, if that is a factor!

    I prefer a wedding cake at a wedding…I agree with a pp that cupcakes remind me of birthday parties.  I love your cake inspiration…beautiful!

    We did both: cupcakes and a cutting cake. It was a good compromise for us because I wanted a regular, tiered cake but my husband wanted cupcakes.

    I’ve heard that getting venues to get rid of the cake-cutting fee is one of the easiest to get them to … uh, cut. Try it!

    We’re doing a cupcake tree, and I’m super excited about it!  Ours will look like the one below.

    We did cupcakes with a 6 inch cake to cut. Worked out wonderfully, for the kids and the adults that came to the wedding. I agree with others and make sure your venue doesn’t get sneaky and charge a fee for cupcakes.

    I’m having both!  My traditional “cake” will be a dummy cake (styrofoam decorated in fondant).  There will be one real slice of cake wedged in the back, so we can do the cake cutting, but the rest of it will just be for show.  The dessert table will be filled with cupcakes and other yummy desserts for the guests.

    If you had cupcakes, did they get dry before eating them? I’m worried about setting them up in the afternoon and having them sit until dinner which will be between 5 and 7 in the evening.

    @ashers033: Ours didn’t get dry whatsoever. We also had black bottom cheesecake cupcakes, so the cheesecake may have made them more moist than the average cupcake.

    I have to admit that I like both. But for a wedding I decide a cake. 

    Though I hope thats enough. After I told ne of my future guests about the cake she asked me whats for dessert. I said the cake is the dessert. I figured thats enough. I hope.

    Is it customary to have a cake/cupckaes and a dessert? Hmmm

    My venue is only 1.00 for cake cutting, either way we wanted a traditional cake.

    We did cupcakes with a topper cake, and everyone loved them! And no cake cutting fee!

    @ashers033: We had the same situation…set them up in the afternoon, and they were still moist and delicious at 8pm when everyone dug into them. We had a ton leftover and didn’t pack them up til the morning after, and they were still moist. So I don’t think you have anything to worrry about.

    We did wedding cupcakes. My only regret is that after we cut our ceremonial extra-large cupcake, and fed each other a bite, we left to chat with friends and later discovered that our cupcake was GONE. Someone ate it? or the staff threw it out? No one knows, but we had a handful of leftover cupcakes so I’ll guess the staff threw it out when they started cleaning up. We got one bite each of our awesome huge cupcake 🙁
