I don't know if I've mentioned this before, but I am so pro-cupcake it's unreal. Think of the benefits- no cake cutting fee...less cleanup...possibly more variety..way less expensive. The only downside to me personally, for my wedding, is that it isn't a traditional cake. I like the look of a nice big white wedding cake. Luckily a traditional cake is near the bottom of my give-a-shit list. Give me a big fat red velvet cupcake with cream cheese icing. Chocolate with chocolate. Lemon with vanilla. Mike agreed we can have a ton of delicious cupcakes and a nice 6 inch cake on the top of our cupcake stand to cut.
Speaking of the actual cake part, check out this cake topper. !!!!!!! I just about died when I found it. I need it! It fits our vibe perfectly.
Mike's mom offered to make our cupcakes, and that sounded like a really good (and inexpensive, helloooo) idea until I found out there is a local bakery that does GORGEOUS cupcakes on the cheap. Now I rationalize that it would be better for everyone to have a pro make and set up our little cake substitutes. She agrees! The only thing that's a pain right now is that they don't accept orders until a year in advance...so I just have to wait 7 months or so.
We haven't done a lot in the way of purchasing things lately, but that's okay. I'm breathing a little. I feel like we've made headway with a lot of decisions. First bridal showcase in 11 days, stay tuned!
