WEDDING CAKE VS WEDDING CUPCAKES | Love ‘em both? Here’s what to do…

Happy Wednesday, my loves.  Let me share with you my morning…

My cute-as-a-button 3-yr-old nephew has a mean case of the hiccups, and my darling 6-yr-old niece has so many mosquito bites it looks like she has chicken pox.  We dipped her in a vat of calamine lotion, and she’s adjusting nicely.  But these hiccups.  These hiccups are infuriating my nephew.  He doesn’t have time for hiccups.  He’s got things to break, people to hug, places to trip and fall.  So these hiccups don’t fit nicely into his morning regimen.  We’re hoping they pass soon, so he can get on with his plans for today.  He’s got firetrucks from 9-11am, and he penciled in Tonka trucks for his afternoon meeting.  And he’s hoping to fit in a little Slip N Slide later today, though, you guys know how I feel about that.

Ok, so, lemme guess: you’ve seen so many fantastic cakes and just as many adorable cupcake setups that you’re having a seriously tough time deciding on what to go with for your wedding day.  I understand; both options are incredibly enticing, and I’ve gotta be honest, I’ve gone back and forth as well.  But I’ve got something that, for a bunch of you, might be the answer to your prayers.

Check out this awesomeness from hello naomi:

{A cuppie-cake!  That’s not what it’s called, but I think it sounds perfect.}

By the way, if you liked this, you might like these cupcakes in a jar (scroll down a bit for them)…

This DIY cupcake wrapper (again, scroll down a bit – it’s in the Fab Finds… it’s also WORTH IT)…

I love these mini cupcakes and wedding cakes I saw at Urban Wed – SO cute.  SO.

And so much more in Cakes + Desserts!

Oh, and I’m OBSESSED with this song.  Have been for weeks.  The video’s RIDICULOUS, but the song is like a freaking birthday party of fun.

What do you guys think?  Whether or not this is your style, do you think this is the cutest wittle cuppie-cake in the world?  Because… my niece does.  (;

xoxo!  - Alison

    Alison – this is so pretty and yummy! I love both the cake and cupcakes! Give the bride and groom something to cut…but still have the fun playfulness of the cupcakes! Super sweet. And I think cuppie cake sounds perfect!

    Try biting into a lemon wedge to cure the hiccups. It's my mom trick and it works 99% of the time.

    Gasp! I LOVE the cuppiecake! The topper is just fantastic — I love how the curve of the “balloon” string is incorporated into the side of the cake for extra oomph! LOVE!

    I like cup cakes more. Hassle free, easy to handle, and overall looks so cute when arranged. In fact they can be arranged in different patterns o make even beautiful table decor.
