WARNING: “For the Grown and Cake Lovers Only”
Every wedding night ends with the cutting of the cake. Although customs transform with the times, and today the ceremonial cutting of the wedding cake has remained a popular and meaningful wedding reception activity. Numerous of couples include the cake cutting during their reception. It is a fabulous way to capture a symbolic photo of the couple’s first joint task as newlyweds. Find out below how to properly cut the cake on your “BIG” day.
This is how we cut it…
Even if you believe you are a pro at cutting cakes— birthday parties or entertaining—check with your cake baker or caterer for special instructions to cutting your cake. Please avoid placing the knife in the wrong spot. Most tiered cakes have dowels in them for support. You could cause the delicate tower to topple over and your beautiful cake will become a crumble mess; if you cut the cake improperly. I recommend you cut this cake from the bottom. This might sound obvious, but remember to use the cake knife, not the server, for the quickest and cleanest cut.
Below is a helpful diagram of how to cut a tier cake:
Open wide and prepare for the first bite; newlyweds frequently feed each other the first slice. Every now and again instead of getting cake in your mouth the cake is smashed into your face. You may feed each other cake; however, you want, but keep in mind—you do not have to smudge frosting on your new spouse merely because your guests anticipate it. You just spent money to get your hair and makeup plus you are probably both in expensive outfits—don’t risk any staining if you don’t want to. Either way, ask your baker or caterer to have napkins (or even a warm, damp cloth) close by to wipe up any rogue crumbs or frosting quickly.
Numerous of couples freeze their top layer; however, now-a-days couples are choosing to do away with this tradition. Talk this over with your baker!
Cake the Crowd
Once the cake has been cut, the catering staff will take the cake into the kitchen to slice for the rest for your guests. If you are cutting the cake yourself, please refer to Chantal’s Cake Cutting Tips above. Numerous of couples froze their top layer; however, now-a-days couples are choosing to do away with this tradition. Be sure to talk this over with your baker!
