The bride and groom place their hands on the knife together and insert the tip into the cake, hold for a moment to make a wish.The caterers then remove the cake and continue the cutting in the kitchen. The bridal attendants then circulate among the guests to distribute the cake. It’s a social and meaningful function even if the guest takes their cake home in a small cake-bag. It is a special memento of the big day.

Size of Cake

The number of guests influences how much cake you need unless you really want a big cake regardless of how many guests will be eating it. You can have your masterpiece made on a polystyrene base which you can keep and admire for a long time to come. You could have two or three tiers of cake and a fourth or fifth of non-cake to achieve that big look. But we digress – back to the question of size.

First decide whether the cake is for the dessert or to have with coffee.
For dessert portion allow a 5cm square piece per person.
For a portion with coffee, allow a 2.5cm portion per person.

Keep in mind that traditionally the small top tier is retained after the wedding to be cut on the occasion of the first anniversary or perhaps a Christening cake.
