Cutting Wedding Cake Costs With Nontraditional Dessert

Your Two Cents: Is the Wedding Cake a Disposable Expense?

The popularity of cupcakes has prompted many couples I know to serve the non-traditional treat at their reception. While it's hard not to love the tinier bites of cake goodness, it's not all fad: cupcakes, wedding cookies, and even dessert bars are often less pricey than extravagantly iced tier cakes. And, most guests are too distracted — or stuffed and tipsy — to notice or care.

Last year, 57 percent of you called a wedding cake disposable — do you feel the same today?

I had a cupcake cake :) No plates to clean up for the cake either. It was a lot more fun I think.

I'm not a huge fan of cake to begin with, so when I get married I think I will leave that tradition out and go with a dessert that better fits my fiance and I.

I made wedding cakes for six years and can still honestly say they are disposable and I will probably not have one!

I had planned to exclude the cake at my reception since we had so many Indian sweets, but the hotel threw the cake in for free from Le Petit Gateau in NJ. Best decision I ever made to keep the cake. Everyone is still talking about how awesome the cake was.
