What You Need to Know About Cake Cutting at Your Wedding Reception

As you probably already know, there are a lot of small details that need to be hammered down when planning a wedding. A detail that may be overlooked is your cake cutting. During your reception, you share the beautiful moment of cutting a piece of cake with your husband. With your partner’s hand placed gently on top of yours, you graciously cut into the cake. But what happens after you have cut the first piece? Do you go ahead and cut the rest of the cake? Hidden Creek is here to help you get this all sorted out before your big day.

In house Catering

When Hidden Creek hosts your wedding, we also offer catering services to make sure that everything runs smoothly. When you choose us as your caterer, we include cake cutting for free! You don’t need to pay an extra cent for this service, it’s complimentary. Our caterers nicely display the pieces of cake and have your guests come up and pick their favorite flavor. If you decide to hire a different caterer, you will need to look into their cake cutting service.

Choosing a Professional

Ideally, you want a professional to provide the cake cutting services. Some caterers do charge an extra fee to deliver a cake cutting service, yet some caterers don’t even offer the service. Make sure you ask and clarify that with your caterer, so you can plan around it. It’s important to figure out who will cut the cake and what the cost is so you can include it in your budget. Hidden Creek recommends paying for the service. It saves you and your guests the headache of figuring out who will cut and/or distribute the cake. Additionally, you can rest assured that the cake will be cut and displayed beautifully. 

Handing the Honor to a Friend or Relative 

If you decide that you want to figure out the cake cutting yourself, we have a couple of tips. Don’t ask an immediate family member to do it because they might miss out on important moments. The cake is usually cut during the same time as toasts are given or during special dances, and you don’t want your parents or siblings to miss out on those special moments.

Ask a friend or relative where it doesn’t really matter if they aren’t right there, attentive for the next step. Another tip is to ask someone that has experience with cutting cakes before. There is a special way of cutting a wedding cake; it’s not like a birthday one. Birthday cakes are usually cut into squares, but for a wedding cake, you cut a circle in the middle and then the rest of the cake into even slices.
