    I’ve never been to a wedding with cake Centerpieces. Now that I know that’s a thing that exists I’m a little sad.

    The cake centerpieces sound perfect. Does the venue provide the cake stands?

    If not, you could keep your color scheme by using/making gold cake stands.

    I *FULLY* support the cake choice — and I can tell you I just got a VERY expensive cake plate from a local shop and it really was just a base on a plate glued (which already came off) so you can easily stay within your theme — just spraypaint the outside not where the cake touches IF you attempt! would you / could you still have the runner?  Please PLEASE share pics if they offer you any!! I’m thrilled and slightly jealous!

    @sheepandbear:  

    @MsDontRushME:  logistically how does it work? How do guests know they can dig in? Prompted by the DJ or wait staff? Does the waitstaff cut the slices for them? Doesneach table get their own cake knife? Please walk me through it. I love the idea so far.

    @lauraashley09:  They are easy to make. You just screw the round wood piece to the base of a piece of turned wood,, then spay paint them. The cake will be on a covered cake plate so no worries there.

    You can also make them by glueing plates to cystal glasses with E6000 glue, then painting them.

    Then turn them right side up!

    I have been to weddings with cake centerpieces. The MC simply announced that we were free to enjoy our cakes after the bride and groom did their cake cutting.

    @julies1949:  so each table was already set with a cake knife and desseet plates? Or did the servers bring the knives and dessertplates mysteriously while no one was looking right before the DJ made the anniuncement?
