Ahhh, the cutting wedding cake …is the wave of the future? Perhaps, for some. For my daughters, the answer was no. Both wanted the full-blown large traditional wedding cake. Did we have a few extra desserts? Yes, but the dessert focal point was the cake. For the weddings I coordinated this summer, most brides chose to have only a “Cutting” Cake, and then SCRUMPTIOUS extra desserts.
Love the cake above. Not only would it be the perfect cake for a couple to partake in the traditional ceremonial cake cutting, but it makes for lovely photos also.

The additional desserts were plentiful, and I think the guests liked the variety. But what about saving the top tier or a potion of your wedding cake for your first anniversary? Tradition has it that a couple is to eat at least a bite of their wedding cake on their first anniversary.

Another cute little cutting cake is pictured above. Flowers are a good choice for a topper on these petite cakes. More traditional toppers are designed for a full sized cake, and would dwarf the smaller version. One of my favorite cakes of the smaller variety is pictured below. A tiny cake need not be plain!
Cupcakes anyone? Lots of brides choose to have cupcakes instead of a traditional cake. Looks like the bride who picked the ‘cake’ below decided to incorporate both a cake AND cupcakes. Don’t think you’ll save a lot of money using this style. Cupcakes can be VERY expensive. Still interested in wedding cupcakes?
