A very close friend of mine recently got engaged and has asked me to help plan the wedding. Although I have never been one of those girls that flips through bridal magazines in her free time, I am getting really excited about planning this event! This is the forth post in a series about wedding planning and this time I will focus on the yummiest part of the day: THE CAKE!!!
Everyone has fallen back in love with cupcakes, but they are not the cupcakes of your childhood, these are AMPED up cupcakes and VERY fancy. They have become a very popular way to do a "wedding cake." Check out these photos of different cupcake executions:

Some couples are now opting for a whole table full of sweet goodies. You can offer cookies, candies, a traditional cake, cupcakes... whatever you'd like, but the main idea is VARIETY!
