One big cake, cupcakes, or cake pops?

Recommended Posts

Hi all! I'm in the early stages of thinking of my cake. I've been to several wedding where of course there was just one cake but when thinking about service and cake eating on a beach, I had an idea that perhaps cupcakes or cake pops might be easier to handle, plus they could be fun. What do you think? Would I be missing out if we don't have a cake to cut?

I love the idea of wedding cupcakes...I think guests would enjoy them much more than cake, especially since you can choose multiple cupcake flavors and they can also take some back to their rooms. If your hotel or caterer is already providing desserts for your reception, perhaps cupcakes wouldn't be an additional cost if they are your desserts? I would have loved to have cupcakes, but my fiance absolutely must have a cake. Sigh!

I love the idea of having cupcakes!!  We would be doing that if the cake wasn't included free in our wedding package.

I love the cupcake idea!!

 

I personally hate cake.. I wish we could have an ice cream cake, but being on the beach and all that may be a problem LOL.

 

I think cupcakes are just soooo cute and something different that guests would enjoy.. I know our resort offers a cupcake cake.. The first layer is a small piece of cake and then below it are like layers of cupcakes! so cute..

I don't think you'd be missing out at all!  The cake cutting is going to go by so fast you won't even remember it hardly.  All you want to do is eat it anyway, not ceremoniously cut it and feed it to each other while everyone you know watches :)  Above all else, I say go with what your vendor does well.  If your baker has never made cake pops before, I'm not sure you want to be the first one to try it out, unless they will do a free trial for you. 

 

Take a risk and let go of tradition...I don't think you'll regret it!

I love the cupcake idea or a mini cake idea (I saw a bride on here who had mini cakes and it looked so good). If I had the choice of cake or cupcakes, I would choose cupcakes.

Cupcakes is a really good idea  not nearly as messy and you don't have someone touching every piece of cake being served.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
