The search for a wedding cake can be one of the most fun experiences you have while planning your wedding. After all, this is a chance to indulge your sweet tooth while trying to decide on what you should have for dessert at your wedding. While flavor certainly matters, the cake also tends to double as one of the more prominent decorative pieces at your celebration – all eyes can certainly be on it as you perform your cake cutting ceremony! Your choices regarding what to serve (and how to serve it) will be important. Fortunately, when you make good decisions, you can be rewarded with a beautiful cake, as well as a great moment during your reception!

Tips To Help You Search For Your Wedding Cake

The classic tiered wedding cake has been a staple of weddings for decades, and many bakeries are prepared to provide a lovely one for you. It is easy to look forward to cake tasting appointments, and luckily you do not have to delay the experience for too long. You should start the search for a cake early, as you want to give yourself time to find the right vendor, and give that vendor enough time to prepare a great cake. While it might be tempting to go in and sample everything, be prepared to share some of your cake preferences in order to narrow down your options.

If you are worried about the cake’s impact on your budget, there are choices you can make to cut back on the expense. One thing you can do is order a smaller cake, and make up the difference in slices with a sheet cake. You can also order a mock-cake that gives you the visual of your tiered dessert, then order sheet cake to cut and feed the guests. You can still create the magic of the cake cutting by having a pre-placed slice on the “cake” that you can cut free and serve to your partner.

Tips To Plan Your Cake Cutting And Serving

Having someone on hand who can confidently cut your cake can make the process of serving dessert less stressful. You can talk with your caterers to see if someone can perform this for you, or have someone designated in your wedding party to assist with this. If you have an event planner on hand, make sure they have all relevant information regarding your plans for cutting the cake. This can be especially important if you plan on using a stand-in for a cake. They can make sure it is quickly taken to the back to keep the illusion of your cake intact.
