Our wedding the baker did not cut the cake, we had DH’s aunt do this and it was fine. Honestly no one is going to care what their piece of cake looks like long as it tastes good.  I really wouldn’t stress about this.

@littlemisst08:  “doesn’t cut the cake, it’s an honor to be asked to do so by the bride,”

Huh? It’s an “honor” to be asked to cut a cake, but she won’t do it? That doesn’t make any sense.

@littlemisst08:  How is the cake being handled? 

For us the baker dropped it off at the reception site before we even got there, so of course they weren’t going to stick around and cut it hours later.  Our venue did it for us and charged us $1/person.

We didn’t want to waste cake so we told our baker to only provide as much as we had people coming, so she said the venue would have to be careful about how they cut the pieces — keep that in mind if you ask one of your guests to do it.

How are you going to serve it after it is cut?  Or will people come up and get a piece from the cake table?

Little details to think about 🙂  Hope it works out for you.

Usually the caterer cuts the cake, sometimes for a fee. I’ve never heard of the baker doing it.

Our venue was trying to pull this shit too.  She kept telling me that my bridesmaids could cut it – ummmm, no.  In their long dresses, they’re going to cut our 4 tier cake?  NO. 

Cutting a wedding cake is messy and really really difficult because they have to cut it into the serving sizes, not just how you’d cut a regular cake. 

I think she just wants to be able to charge you (we paid 1.50 a slice….), or she’s lazy.  Can your venue do it?

@littlemisst08:  Sometimes the venue will cut the cake for you depending on if they have on-site caterers. I know ours will cut our cake for us without charging us. I would maybe ask your caterer or venue? 🙂
