The wedding cake is a tradition that holds true to this day, of the less traditional wedding. Some couples take the wedding cake pretty seriously, and some couples use a little creativity, or offer cup cakes as an alternative. This is a gallery of cakes from recent weddings. I do not know who made them, or how much they cost.
The cake table needs to be in an attractive area of the reception hall preferably with good lighting to display it properly. Millard Plaza Ballroom has a very nice cake tent, The Brandeis Building has great windows as a background for cakes, and most halls have designated an area that make the cake table attractive. Most couples will personalize their cake with a unique topper. Sometimes it is a monogram sometimes it is figurines, sometimes it is fruit or flowers, the choice is up to you. The grooms cake will usually say something about the groom. It may be decorated with his favorite sports team logo, or something that describes a hobby or interest. It is usually a different flavor then the wedding cake to give your guests variety. Cup cakes are an option that does not require a cake cutter, and you can offer different flavors in an affordable way.
When it is time to cut the cake, I have the groom hold the knife, then the bride puts her hand on top of his, and they cut a small piece together. I have them feed each other at the same time and follow up with a kiss, Some couples use forks, some couples smash cake in each others mouths. Have a napkin close by, and your champagne glasses on the table.
