I have seen scratch recipes for mint julep cakes and it seems they all have the MJ flavor in the icing. A mint julep is bourbon, mint and simple sugar. I would just incorporate bourbon and mint into a WASC recipe just as you would any liqueur varation.
Cupcakes are very popular right now...what I did was check around my area to see what cupcake shops were charging. Some shops are ridiculously high but you should get a pretty good idea of a competative price for your area. The average price in my area for a classic size iced cupcake starts around $2.95
It's a pretty simple design. Start with what ever size sheet cake pan you need, bake your cake, make a ribbon template to fit that size cake, freeze cake for a bit, use template to carve cake. That's what I would do. Someone may have another suggestion.
For a 3 tiered wedding cake the bride would like a sparkling trail of some sort going down from her topper diagonally across each tier to the bottom. She had originally wanted some sort of edible gems but she is on a tight budget and to do that many gems would have been too much of an expense. I suggested Sparkling White sugar.

A 2 tiered cake should not be difficult to transport. Make sure you use some sort of support in the bottom tier to hold up the top tier. I don't think I would use Angel food cake.

You will find tutorials that will help you. good luck : )
