As a Wisconsin girl, I always considered food on a stick a novelty reserved for daring diners at the annual State Fair. Gems like cheesecake, deep fried butter, chocolate covered bacon and deep fried PB & J are just a few of the things fair goers could enjoy skewered on a stick this past summer.

Thankfully, the wedding industry has taken on this “food on a stick” popularity with a bit more class and artistry. Cake pops, cakes on a stick, are popping up in bakeries and weddings everywhere. Read more »

Cupcakes are in. The Food Network’s Cupcake Wars, which pits the country’s top cupcake bakers against one another, is one of the top cooking shows on television today. Specialty cupcake shops have popped up across the country, and wedding cupcakes are the new wedding cake “tradition.” No longer can you expect to find magnificent, tiered wedding cakes at every wedding reception. Instead, many contemporary brides are choosing small wedding cakes complemented by elegant or whimsical cupcake displays designed to please a variety of palettes.

Wedding Cake Basics: Cutting and Serving the Wedding Cake

Posted on February 3rd, 2011 by Mandy Webster

A 5-layer, Modern Black and White Wedding Cake on a table at a wedding receptionIn my last post, I gave you a brief overview of how to cut your wedding cake. Now that you know how your cake should be cut, the next step is to decide who will cut and serve the wedding cake at your wedding reception. You must make sure the official wedding cake cutter understands exactly how you want the cake sliced in order to serve everyone. You don’t want to start with large slices of cake and end up serving tiny slivers near the end to try to feed everyone.

If your caterer is providing your wedding cake, then he or she will likely take charge of cutting the cake. In this case, making arrangements for the wedding cake cutting ceremony may be as simple as reviewing your expectations with the caterer. In most cases the person assigned to cut your cake will have some experience and will probably cut your cake in the exact proportions required to feed all of your guests.

However, many caterers will charge you an exorbitant fee for cutting and serving a cake provided by someone other than themselves. In this case, you will need to choose a trusted friend or family member to take on this vital role.Beaded Cake Serving Set

Remember, this is one of those easily forgotten, yet absolutely essential details that must not be put off until the big day. It is so important to designate a specific person to direct the cake cutting and take steps to ensure the cake cutter understands and agrees with your expectations.

To accomplish this, you might consider holding an informal cake cutting party in advance of the big day. Get together with friends and family members to bake your own inexpensive cakes from box mixes, or use several loaves of bread cut to the sizes and shapes of your actual wedding cake tiers. Don’t be concerned with how your cakes look or what they are made of. The important thing is that your practice cakes be the same sizes and shapes as the real deal. Read more »
