Wedding Cake vs. Cupcakes... that is the question.
The answer: HAVE BOTH!
Meet Lolita's Cupcreations located in Morgantown, WV. Her creations - cupcakes and cakes - are beautiful, and guess what? they are delicious too!! With flavors like Nutella, Peanut Butter Turtle Creation, Raspberry Tiramisu and the classical Red Velvet with Mascarpone (the "original" cream cheese), you won't be able to decide which flavors to order.

As a wedding professional, I am always searching for that special vendor that will go the extra mile for my couples, and Laura, the woman behind Lolita's Cupcreations, is the perfect match! I had a lovely time meeting her. She speaks with such a passion about her cakes, that is contagious, I left our coffee chat wanting to eat cupcakes all afternoon.
For your wedding, you can order a 6" cake and decorate it with your topper (save it for your first year anniversary, if you want), and cupcakes for your guests.
How many cupcakes should you get? I recommend getting at least 20% more than your guest list. For example, for 150 guests, order 180 cupcakes.
On a final note: Some people might suggest that cupcakes in your wedding are so 2012, and that's ok! Remember this is your celebration and you do what you want, you are not organizing a magazine editorial photo shoot.
