Most brides spend a whole lot of time on their cake design… deciding which colours and flavors it must be, determining the way it ought to replicate the couple’s particular person model or theme, and seeing what can be utilized as inspiration (maybe the lace applique on the bride’s robe?). Nevertheless, on the marriage day, the cake usually will get relegated to a nook of the room and forgotten about  till it’s time to chop the cake on the finish of the evening.   

I say, give your beautiful cake the location it deserves! With my brides, I usually place the cake desk entrance and middle on the reception, the place all friends will see it as they enter the room. You can too set it up behind the lover desk as an attractive backdrop. Have a highlight on the cake or place a number of candles round it in order that it will probably’t be missed—and serves as a part of the room décor.

It’s additionally enjoyable to modify up the custom of slicing the cake. As an alternative of creating this one of many final components of the evening—an indication to friends that the celebration’s over—transfer this occasion up within the timeline. The cake-cutting can come at first of the reception (the serving half can occur later) or mid-way by, following the couple’s toast to the friends (champagne and sweets are an ideal pair!). Your friends will admire such sudden touches.

One final word concerning the wedding ceremony cake: It’s vital to know forward of time whether or not you’re going to save lots of the highest layer. A lot ado was made from Kim Kardashian reportedly permitting the cleanup crew at her wedding ceremony to throw away the highest layer of her cake. Maybe she simply didn’t notice the importance of saving this layer till your first anniversary, when you may share a chew of it along with your husband (Editor’s word: Or perhaps Kim predicted they’d break up properly earlier than the one-year mark?).

For those who do select to observe this custom, be sure you assign somebody to the duty of wrapping it up for you after the marriage (or proper after you end serving)—don’t assume somebody will mechanically do that for you. And do retailer the cake in an hermetic container in your freezer, in order that first chew is palatable after a 12 months!
