I just read about this on another thread – hadn’t even thought about it.
I’ve read lots of people have extra cake left over. Since we are doing buffet style and I’ll order more servings than we need (because I am neurotic about having enough), I would guess that we very well may have quite a bit leftover too.
After cake has been out for awhile (an hour or so), what about putting out clamshell boxes, plastic forks, and a cute note that says they are welcome to take a slice or two home? The plastic forks are since everyone is staying in hotels… I wonder if I could come up with a way to nicely package them.
We’re having our wedding out of town (from everyone) and then going straight on our honeymoon, so I don’t really want a bunch of leftovers. I have a DOC who could handle this duty.

That’s a great idea! If I were your guest, I’d take a piece!

I would grab cake! Our guests have a ferry journey home so that would be a good idea for them to take some for the 30 minute boat ride…Thanks hun x lol

We’re doing cupcakes and will have cupcake boxes for takings home. We also got a few larger boxes to pile em in for families with kids. We def don’t want extras either.

I have actually only ever been to one wedding where we ate the cake at the wedding. Every other wedding we have been given dessert and cake to take home in a cake box. Same thing at my wedding- guests took the cake home.
Something like this

I think ordering that much extra cake would be overkill. My cousin just set out the few extra pieces. They were eaten. Of you didn’t have enough for everyone to take a piece home, then you are right back where you started. The extra cake will come with us to eat it the next few days or with FBIL, who lives with us, or some other bridal party member to eat. Probably him as he is the only one with a good metabolism! Unless you are ordering nearly 2x the pieces of cake, I would skip it (1.5x minimum)
