@MsGinkgo:  We’re having cupcakes and the bakery is making us a little tiny cake to cut, so that we can do the traditional cake cutting. It was $30. Maybe you could do something like that?

@MsGinkgo:  I think that you should do whatever you want and it will be great. However, we skipped a lot of traditions except the cake cutting. That was one tradition we really wanted to keep and we loved it. I loved seeing the pretty wedding cake with our cake toppers that we put a lot of thought into and then cutting it together and feeding it too each other. It was so fun and cute.

I went to a wedding once with a pizza cutting- they had midnight pizza. Do you like pizza?

I went to another wedding that had cheesecake instead of cake (it was amazing) and bride’s mom made a simple two layer cake for B&G to cut.

@MsGinkgo:  We had pie, but the caterer cut it, because pie is messy! So no cutting, didn’t care and I don’t regret it! The pie was delicious, my only regret is that I only got one slice.

I’m not a big cake person, but we still had a little 2 tier cake to cut for pictures. My sweetie cut his finger with the knife.lol

We served different cake to our guests for dessert.

I had a cake at the wedding because it was included in the wedding package.

We did not have a formal cake cutting……

I thought that a cake cutting would just be one more interruption that would break up the flow of the party atmosphere we were trying to create

@MsGinkgo:  Cake cutting is a tradition I always look forward to witnessing at a wedding. FH and I are doing a small cake for us to cut with sheet cake in back.

You can cut ANYTHING.  Just cut whatever dessert is on the plate!  It’ll still be fun and photo-worthy, and it’s cute thing for the guests to get to see.

We’re having a cake but we’re not doing a cutting.  I don’t want to be on display cutting cake and feeding it to my new husband.  I want a waiter to come to my table and put cake in front of me. 🙂

We didn’t have a cutting.  In fact the waiter cut the cake in the kitchen and presented it on fancy plates with sorbet.  I would have liked to cut the cake, but it really is no big deal now that I think of it!
