    Did any of you ladies do cupcakes instead of a cake?

     

    We have ordered ours from GiGi's cupcakes, but Im wondering what we do as far as "cutting the cake" and what about that anniversary tradition where you eat the top layer?

     

    Any help?

      Hey wildangel!

      We wanted to do a cupcake tower instead of the traditional cake too! Only after reading reviews from past brides our resort's cupcakes aren't good, boo =( But, as part of our wedding package, we receive a "sweetheart" cake, which is a small heart shaped cake. We'll be having ice cream bar & fondue instead of cake, but we're using the heart cake specifically for cutting of the cake & a few pictures. Since dessert includes cake & creme brulee, we didn't think having more cake would be worth it. I'm not too traditional of a bride, so I really didn't even think of the anniversary cake you're supposed to have. We can't bring any food back to the states, so we'll probably have a cake when we return to NY. From that cake, we'll probably save a slice to have a year later if anyhting.

      Hope this helps =)

        When my mom got remarried, she had a tiered cake stand with cupcakes on them for guests and at the top of the cake, had their small cutting cake.

              Yes, the "shells" on the cupcakes were made of white and raspberry chocolate and the "sand" was actually brown sugar. The pillars were from michael's and we filled them with actual sand and shells. The cupcakes were vanilla and chocolate, but their cutting cake I think was Funfetti! HAHA I guess my mom's husband also wanted a wedding pie so they had a pie on hand as well LOL.
