So, I think I've pretty much decided that I want to do cupcakes instead of a traditional cake. Our reception is more of a cocktail event with passed apps, etc. Thus I think cupcakes make more sense, plus we have more flavor options... and well, I just love cupcakes.
I do plan on having a small cake on the top tier for cutting/show/display my DIY topper.
If anyone else is going this route, can you recommend a place? (I've found a couple potential bakers, but have yet to do a tasting anywhere)
I think my biggest challenge will be finding a stand I like. I do want the tiered look, but most of the ones I've seen are super tall and narrow, where I want a little wider with fewer tiers.
Considering just doing a search for serving-ware (not necessarily made for cupcakes)...
If I have no luck, I'll be commissioning my FI to create one out of steel (he used to be a welder by trade, now as a hobby).
Open to thoughts, recommendations and suggestions!
