For you bees who did not do a cake cutting (or have been to a wedding without), how did dessert get opened? FI and I really want to minimize our time in the spotlight (as in, where everyone’s eyes are on us) and just have no desire to cut and feed each other cake (also, he likes one flavor and I like the other). We’ll be having cupcakes and a s’mores bar, no cake. How do we transition to open those?

We are having a fairly large dessert buffet after dinner/a few dances, and we aren’t having a cake either. We are just going to have our MC announce that desserts are out.

I went to a wedding last summer with no cake (two actually, but the second one was really small and casual) and the MC just announced that the desser table was open.

Do you have a DJ or MC type of person? They usually announce the cake cutting so they can just announce that the dessert buffet is now open instead.

@vorpalette: Just have the DJ announce that dessert is now being served. We cut one slice of cake so our parents could take a nice photo but no announcement was made and I don’t think anyone noticed.

we are also doing cupcakes at the wedding, we are still up in the air about the cake cutting/feeding ceremony, i really want this awesome skeleton cake cutting knife, ha. Our baker said she has a mold for a larger cupcake, maybe we would cut that and share? IDK, or maybe ask for 2 large cupcakes – one to cut and (IDK of i want to be fed) the other to take home and freeze? i think as they start taking away the plates for dinner the DJ can make an announcement saying the “dessert ceremony will now start” or something to that affect, I want to ask my reception coordinator/caterer if the waiters bring cupcakes our sweetheart table and to everyone and have them select 1 flavor (have a few of each flavor and go to each table so everyone gets at least 1 cupcake) us get regular cupcakes and we will open our own cupcake wrappers and wrap around each other’s arms (like they do with a drink). then after that is done they can make there way up and grab extras
We get 120 cupcakes – for 100 guests, up to 3 flavors. I had asked the baker how much would it be to double the amount to have 240 for 100 guests, you know if there is more than one flavor people want to try other flavors, i cant just pick one and neither can he, so we may have up to 5 flavors, they are priced at $13.50 per dozen extra, which isnt bad at all being we priced other bakeries at $16-20per dozen HOLY COW… so im happy with the $13.50per dozen.
we also plan on having a chocolate fountain with treats to dip in, and a candy bar in coordinating colors to the wedding. We were thinking maybe put the cupcake tower and the card box on another table (i will be making a very large box) so maybe it would look nice with photos>? Goodluck! let me know what you ended up doing!

@AndysCraftsNmore: I think our cupcake tower will be on the table with the card box, since it’s an 8′ long table. I’ll probably make a sign that my cousin can put up with it that says something about them being available after dinner
