Cutting the Cake

Cutting the Cake

This age old tradition is as much a part of your special wedding celebration as the something new and something blues are. The moment when you and your husband wrap your hands around the knife is a symbol of the new unity that tying the knot has brought. Even your guests look forward to this mouth-watering moment as they have been secretly eyeing the spectacular creation all night; speculating whether or not it will taste as great as it looks. It is always a great idea to have a talk with your hubby beforehand and make sure that he understands that you do not want to have any red velvet cake smudged on your gorgeous gown.  Make sure that you cut a nice small portion and break it in half if you are going to share it for the pictures; that way you will minimalise the chance of cake messing up your perfectly applied lipstick. A nice touch is to make sure that the knife you will be using is not just an ordinary piece of cutlery; rather use something unique or specially crafted that ties in with the theme and décor of your wedding.

Nowadays wedding cakes have launched into fantastically creative pieces that are almost art-like. Couples can truly inspire their cake designers and chocolatiers to reach new heights. However, make sure that you do not cut the cake at a bad angle and have fondant flowers falling off all over the place. Get some advice on this from your baker to ensure a smooth and memorable moment with your husband. When you are choosing your wedding cake it is important to decide whether or not it would also double as your dessert; as guests absolutely love the idea of sharing that specially baked cake with the newlyweds.  Keep in mind the amount of guests, because you don’t want to have guests standing around with empty plates and the taste of disappointment in their mouths. So, do the right thing and double-up on your order to spoil all those sweet teeth.
