Let them eat cake!

Which Marie Antoinette never said, BTW...

So I think I've thought of a creative (and more yummy) solution to the "Dana and Paul don't like cake, but doesn't a wedding need wedding cake?" problem. While we don't eat cake, we do like cheescake... and cheesecake stacks. And we know that Joan and Ed's (or Cheesecake Factory) make awesome cheesecake. So here's what I'm thinking -- stack a few cheesecakes of differing flavors on top of each other and we'll save the top layer for our anniv, per tradition. No icing needed (swirls are decoration in and of themselves), but maybe we'll decorate it with some summery dragonflies.

Tell us what your wedding cake looked like and was there a delicious surprise inside?

One of the ideas we've seen is using cupcakes instead of cake. Have a small cake to cut at the reception, but then give everybody cupcakes. You can have all different flavors for people who don't want chocolate (heathens! ;)) or golden or frosting...

And you can arrange them all nice so they look like a cake.

And it's cheaper too, evidently.

Good idea... But we don't like cake and cupcakes are basically little cakes. The presentation would look nice, though, all decorated differently, etc.
