We were discussing yesterday that my sister is not bothered about having a traditional wedding cake and i suggested they could have some of the beautful glittery cupcakes that they ordered for Nancys 1st birthday.

Sounds good to me! :yes:

I was just thinking that those fairy cakes you linked us to would be great fun! :D

I've known some folks to have cheesecake. There is even a Krispy Kreme wedding cake believe it or not! :lol:

I'd imagine that anything you chose to do would be possible in this day and age.

I think lovely little cupcakes are a nice idea though. :yes:

Do you not do the "save the top layer" for the first anniversary in the UK? :unsure: (Not that eating cake which had been frozen for a year is high on my priority list, mind). :D

Not a fan of traditional wedding cakes, either. They look wonderful and usually taste awful!

Love the idea of cupcakes or fairy cakes! She could coordinate the icing/decorations with the colours she selects. :D

oh wow - now that sounds gorgeous! there's a local shop that makes divine cupcakes (the place that made the glittery ones) - i wonder whether they'd be open to making red velvet. if she's interested i'll call in to speak to them....

Yum!

so they're thinking of having cupcakes instead of a traditional cake as you know, and boy was there a huge assortment at the wedding fair - they were beautiful.

there was a stunning display of chocolate boxes filled with chocolate sponge cake covered with a truffle like chocolate layer then topped with either roses, strawberry, blackcurrants, redcurrants, other flowers - pretty much whatever you would like - it looked much like this, (http://www.kiccacakes.com/images/Photogallery/CupCake/images/080-CHOCOLATE-BOXCAKE.JPG) only nicer! my sister entered a prize draw to win a cake so she may be lucky and end up with them!

i think the cupcake one is favourite at the moment though :yes:

sooooo, change of plan!


she does NOT want to do the cutting of the cake thing and for that reason is not having a large cake as you know.

Well, after the wedding breakfast everybody will be ushered into the hotel lounge (http://www.parkhousehotel.com/promotions/) for teas/coffees and chocolates.

Her idea which i think is really sweet is to have the 5,6 or 7 tiered cake stand in there filled with.....


wait for it......



one of her favourites.........




french fancies! (http://www.mrkipling.co.uk/productdetails.aspx?ProductId=12)



i think it'll look so sweet in the room setting :yes:

I'm not sure actually, i just assumed it would be the kipling ones for ease.

I'l pass that link on to her and she can think about it and decide what to do - thanks for that :thumbsup:
