Mini Wedding Cakes
Most of the time when you think of a wedding cake you envision a large cake that would feed 100 people or more, usually in tiers and with fancy decoration. However, there is a trend that is leaning towards individual mini wedding cakes, either as the dessert or as wedding favors for the guests. I'm not talking about cupcakes, I'm looking at real little wedding cakes. This is an intriguing idea. If the guests don't want to wait for the cake cutting to have dessert, they just dig in when they want. It makes each guest feel a little more special. Also, if you put them into little clear boxes with a ribbon it makes the perfect wedding favor for people to take home. They don't all have to be decorated the same, and they are adorable. But they can be very expensive, depending on how much decorating you want on each one and how many the cake artist has to make. What do you think? Is this a cool idea or is it half baked? Too expensive at $8-$20 each? Beyond the reach of the common bride? Post your comments below the photos!
