When I sit down and talk to couples, we often decide on flavours that they love. Quite rightly, if it’s your wedding cake, you should enjoy eating every tier! However, realistically, if you do plan to have a slice of cake from each tier – that’s 6 slices! If you’ve ordered a really tasty cake, you might have to fight your guests for a slice. Most of my couples say that guests enjoyed the wedding cake so much, there was nothing left at the end!
Don’t forget, when you cut the cake, it’s likely that you’ll be taking a reasonably sized chunk out of one of the tiers of cake. So this can impact how many slices you can cut out of the cake at the end. This isn’t a big problem on larger cakes, but if it’s smaller, the lost slices will be more noticeable.
