Wedding cakes, anyone?

Wedding cakes interest me because it's always the central theme of any weddings. It highlights the whole theme of the wedding. It makes the wedding celebration complete. My question is, have you ever attended a wedding, have a piece of the wedding cake and eat it too? (pardon the pun!). Haven't you noticed that not all the guests get to taste the wedding cake? Care to share them here...

I have not been to very many wedding but I always got a piece of the wedding cake at all of them. I have never seen a guest not get a piece of cake unless they didn't want one. That is why you RSVP so they know how much food to order.

Good for you. It's customary in my country that the wedding cake stays untouched until the wedding feast is over. Except of course, the part that the couple eats during the ceremony.

I always have a piece of wedding cake at any wedding that I attend as I feel that it is part of the wedding ceebration. I feel that the bride and groom might be offended if I were to not try a peice of the cake as it is the central highlight of the ceremony.

Hi there! Like you I also love wedding cakes. Indeed it is one of the highlights of a wedding celebration. Based on experience, there are times when guests can partake of the wedding cake but there are also times when the wedding cake is not served to the guests at all. It is a shame actually when the wedding cake is not served because it is a known fact that wedding cakes are very costly but the guests cannot even appreciate or commend the newly wed couple on how tasty and exquisite their cake was. I just attended a wedding last week. And like what you said, the big wedding cake was not served at all. The newly weds just brought it home from the reception venue when the program was over. I think it was a big waste. And they spent thousands for such big cake. And guests like me were wondering if their cake was a good as it looked hahaha. :D Have a good day and happy mylotting1 :D

I know some restaurants put a piece at each seat unless someone declines it. However, some places ask each guest if they'd like a piece and if they aren't at their seat when they come around they sometimes miss out. Usually though they have extras at the cake table. At one wedding I went to, they had a little cake at every table so everyone got a piece and they doubled as the centerpieces. I can't remember ever not getting a piece when I wanted one.

I have never had it that not everybody got a piece to try. One time it got close, but they started to hand out smaller pieces as in a third of a regular piece. That said, not everybody likes cake (I have a child that doesn't) and not everybody likes the cake that's being served. I didn't like my own wedding cake, neither did my husband. It turned out too sweet for me. I'm not sure what went wrong, and we never complained to the store because most people liked it and even had seconds, lol. It was three layers and where my husband comes from the top layer is put in a freezer and enjoyed on the first anniversary (didn't taste better then either and we ended up throwing it away, lol). Anyhow, they had to quickly remove that piece from the room. We had counted one piece per person and not everybody even came. Maybe it was because we chose chocolate, lol... A lot of people choose weird flavors. I'll eat it, when it is something I like.
