Sticker shock is something that happens for brides more than once during their wedding planning process. Part of it is that whatever you are purchasing for your wedding, this is the first (and hopefully only) time you are purchasing these goods and services.
There is probably more confusion over how to cut the wedding cake than anything else. You probably have not thought about cutting the cake except the fact that you are going to do it. There is no rehearsal for it and sometimes only the photographer taking 100 frames a second of you looking like an idiot standing next to the cake. So… here is your 411 on how to cut a wedding cake!
So much of weddings nowadays is over the top! And we can appreciate that you want everything to be awesome… but take a step back and look at this gorgeous white wedding cake with beautiful, yet simple, floral decoration.
When you receive your final invoice from your wedding, you see a line item: Cake Cutting. Are you surprised? Why? Was it not explained to you? How could it have been avoided?
All cakes are NOT created equal! And all cake plated presentations are definitely not equal!!!
We have all been at weddings when the final course is set before us and we swear that someone just slapped that piece of cake on the plate without any thought as to appearance. And we “eat” with our eyes first!
Make your wedding cake course as special as the champagne vinaigrette you so carefully selected for the salad course.
Ask if the wedding cake course can be made special. It is as easy as adding a swirl of fruit coulis, a scoop of ice cream or sorbet, a dizzle of chocolate sauce, a little shower of powdered sugar or a few delicious berries. It will make it look more like a dessert plate ~ inviting and original.
