    We decided pretty quickly not to do a wedding by cake! When thinking about the cost and how much people don’t usually eat the wedding cake, we decided to just either save that money or put it towards something that is top priority on our list of “must haves”. My mom is upset about it, but we’re the ones paying for it.

    Not a must for us, my FH and I aren't huge on cake. We've been looking into apple strudel and ice-cream, or ice-cream sandwiches to put on our dessert table.

    It's not a must. I mean there are people who have cupcakes or donuts. We decided to get a cake because his family are huge dessert people and both of our families are large so we thought this would take up less room than a bunch of cupcakes.

    Cake is a must. We are having a small elopement party and aren't having many traditional aspects, but no matter what I still wanted a cake (although I think it's just because I love cake) haha

    I think we are going to have a black forest cake instead of a traditional fondant tier cake, but I haven't decided yet!

    For me it's a must-do, only because it's the only time in my life I'll ever get to have a tier cake....or fondant....lol but lots of people are happy with other alternatives. I just love cake 😂

    For us yes a cake is a must. I'm an Soo looking forward to a fluffy sweat buttercream frosting. Yummy.

    I have been looking for a cake topper. I'd like something a little more unique.

    Must do. This is one dessert that was served to just family as friends got a piece from the assorted pastry served with the chosen dessert plated.

    The cake represented our dog Peanut present with us as the paws walked up the cake.

    The cake is the whole inspiration for our wedding, it is the main focal point when you walk into the reception! The cake design was the first thing that was decided on, once that was picked out everything else fell into place!

    Honestly, it's worth it since people don't have to wait for the actual cake to be cut (either by the venue or themselves).

    Here's some photos of what our cake and cupcakes looked like:
