    Well the good news is that he also doesn't like how dark the blue is in the cupcakes and he said the shells would have to be smaller. The cupcake idea is much cheaper, but they do seem pretty birthday-ish..

    the only way the cup cakes look good is if they are set up on one of those tiered things.

        I like the cake much better than the cupcakes!

          What about a small mini-cake for the hand-feeding and then cupcakes for everyone else?

          Word of caution learned at our engagement party---- watch out for dye stains on your skin from colored frosting. We had blue frosting on our engagement cake and we had to work at getting the stains off our mouth/lips...

            Ok Tammy I posted this on your what would you do thread but I'm going to post it here again. This is what I am planning to do:

            Monogrammed Cupcake Tower

            My FI and I don't like cake and he really like blue icing so I said okay. I plan to do the tier thing so that it looks more weddingish. And I will aim for this shade blue so that it does not look kindergartenish. Also I think the importance is the way the frosting is applied. In your pic it is smeared. If you look in this pic it is delicately whipped on into layers which makes it look a little more elegant. And I am planning on getting the fondant hearts to place on top of each one with our monogram.

              Forgot to mention we will do silver foil instead of this foil color.

                    Your idea Tammy!! I think the decoration on the cupcakes its to big, maybe getting something smaller and a softer blue!
