How To Cut the Wedding Cake

THIS ONE TAKES THE "WEDDING" CAKE


HOW TO CUT YOUR WEDDING CAKE TO PERFECTION

When it comes to cutting the wedding cake, many newlyweds don’t know where to begin. Follow these tips from our professional videographers to cut your wedding cake like a pro.

Using her right hand, the bride will usually hold the handle of the knife and the groom will put his hand over hers. Begin cutting the bottom tier of the wedding cake using the pointed part of the knife and make two cuts. Making a vertical slice at the junction of those points will allow you to cleanly remove the small slice and place on a plate. From there, the bride and groom will then feed each other as a sweet start to their new life.
If you will be serving the wedding cake as dessert, cake cutting is usually performed after the grand entrance, before toasts begin. This will allow your serving staff to clear and cut the wedding cake during dinner service. If you will give the cake to guests as they leave, cake can be cut at any time of the evening. You will likely need to order cake boxes if this is your plan.

Discuss in advance if you will feed the wedding cake to each other at the same time or alternate. It is your choice to use fingers or forks!
Let your serving staff know if you plan on keeping or giving away any tier of the cake, otherwise, they may serve it to your guests. Don’t assume everyone knows.
Many couples have the serving set engraved with their names. They can be used later for birthdays, anniversaries or your children’s weddings. Your serving set can become a family heirloom passed down to every generation.
Share your plans for cake cutting with your photographer and videographer so they can decide on the best camera angles for this special moment.Your DJ can suggest the perfect song to accompany your cake cutting.

Traditionally, most couples keep one cake to celebrate their first anniversary and this means storing it in the freezer for one whole year. More recently, bakeries have begun to offer a replica cake tier on your one year anniversary. If you will be storing the top tier, the following can help to preserve the flavor.

Remove the decorations such as flowers and toppers from the cake and make sure the cake board is wrapped with a foil paper.
Place the wedding cake in the freezer for about 20 minutes so as to make the icing hard. Once hardened, wrap the cake with an airtight plastic wrap. Wrap it with two or more layers of foil to prevent the frozen taste and store in a freezer storage container.
