From the time we got engaged until about two weeks before the wedding, Mike and I were planning on having cupcakes in place of the traditional cake. I looked up so many different styles of cupcakes and had decided on a very simple one. Swirls of icing with sugar pears scattered down one side. Simple yet elegant. The original plan was to make them myself, Joy was all prepared to bake up a storm with me a couple of days before the wedding. Then I was going to have someone make them for me. Then I switched back to making them myself – $400 for 100 cupcakes? I don’t think so!
Eventually I decided that baking that many cupcakes myself was never going to work. One week before the wedding I changed the whole game plan. I buckled down and 6 days before wedding baked up three, three layer cake tiers which I promptly wrapped and popped in the freezer. Then two days before wedding, Joy and I filled and decorated them to create a simple cake.

Yep, I was one of those crazy brides that does her own wedding cake.
