Remember, that the food and the cake are two of the highlights of any reception. With that being said, don’t skimp on the cake! This is an area that your guests will indulge in, for sure.
Here are a few things to consider before the cake tasting:
While you don't need an exact guest count, it is important to know how you'll be serving it to your guests. Have a slice for everyone if you plan on plating your cake, but if not, you only need enough for about 75% of your guest list.
Next up: room size. If you plan to host your reception in a small space, you may not want to opt for a seven-tier, over-the-top cake that's going to take over the room. On the contrary, if you're in a ballroom or larger space, consider adding a couple tiers so it doesn't get lost in the room.
Don't want your statement piece to disappear mid-evening? We're sure your cake will be nothing short of extravagant, so consider ordering butler cakes as well to avoid having to cut the actual cake.
Indoors or out? Winter or summer? Climate is something that you wouldn't normally take into account when thinking about cake, unless it's a cake that needs to feed a few hundred people and you don't want your buttercream to melt in the heat. Let this help guide your decision on fondant or buttercream.
On top of it all, make sure you have a wedding cake that you're happy with and can't wait to see when you first set eyes on your reception. Whether it's fresh flowers, gold foiling, the topper, or anything in between, make it something that will make you smile on your big day!
