16 Wedding Cake Ideas With Cupcakes

Supplement your wedding cake with some extra treats.
by Andrea Fowler

Looking to add even more flavor to your wedding cake? Adding cupcakes to your dessert display is a great way to bring a lot of different flavors together and it's cost effective. If you have a large guest list and want to cut down on the cake cost, swap in some supplementary desserts and take a tier of two off  the cake. 

Adding cupcakes into the mix doesn't mean you have to sacrifice the age-old tradition of a wedding cake—you can have both! Customize a small, one-tier cake that can be shared between the newlyweds or opt for a trendy cake that can feed all of your guests and give out the cupcakes as to-go treats.
