what do you do for cupcake weddings?

I'm going to offer a free 6" cake on the first anniversary inspired by but not a replica of their top tier. I don't know what to do about cupcake wedding though? Especially if they just get cupcakes and no 6" cake on top as a cutting tier.

What do you guys do?

I haven't come across this situation before but I think I'd offer them a choice of either a 6" round or a dozen cupcakes.

I'd just do two cupcakes, one for the bride and one for the groom. You could put them in a cute box with a ribbon to fancy it up some.

I would do 2 large cupcakes or use one of the mini wedding cake pans. They have 6 molds in the pan and turn out super cute as a mini wedding cake once decorated.

I would do 1/2 dozen cupcakes decorated the way theirs were all in 1 flavor.

I dont do replicas for anniversary cakes. Too expensive. All my customers get the free anniversary cake of the same design. 6 inch, any flavor or filing, with buttercream and swirl design, and royal icing flowers on top. We do them in like 10 minutes.

That's a good idea to do a half dozen cupcakes instead. Thanks icon_smile.gif

loriemoms - I have no intention of doing a replica of the top tier but would like it to be "inspired" by it if possible. For example for my girlfriend I would do a teal coloured buttercream (not fondant like her original cake) with chocolate brown details. I would skip the gumpaste anemones though.

I would still offer a 6". That's what I offer regardless of what they ordered for their wedding. I try to decorate it in the same theme as the wedding.

I give two 'free' cakes delivered with the wedding cake. Made from scraps as in cut off tops of cakes and extra batter--it's pretty easy to find two five inch cakes in the extras. One is a honeymoon cake and one is for the anniversary. Boxed. I can't be thinking about a whole year later. That's what works for me.

I would do the same for a cupcake wedding cake.
I don't think cupcakes would last a year.
But I'd probably do cuppies for the honeymoon cake/s.
