I have never heard of this and think it’s both bizarre and rude.

How bizzare~! Was it a big cake? How did they manage to eat a whole cake by themselves? Not a fan of this trend… What a waste of cake! haha

Whaaaat….I have never heard of this. 

What’s the point? 

Maybe order an extra layer if you want to take some home but this seems really strange. 

What do you do with 100+ servings of cake other than freeze the whole thing?

How in the world can one couple eat an entire cake?  It makes me sick to my stomach just thinking about it.

I thought the purpose of having a cake was to eat it! If they weren’t going to serve it to their guests, they could have saved some money by just frosting a box, with a small little cake on the top tier!

That is so silly! Why pay for all of that cake and not serve any to your guests. I’ve heard of saving the top tier, but the whole darn cake?!! That’s ridic!

WHAT.  If I’m going to your wedding, I am going to eat some delicious dessert.  Not cool!

@Treejewel19:  That’s just weird and selfish.  I LOVE sweets, but how could anyone eat that much cake without making themselves completely sick?

That’s pretty rude, especially if there’s no other dessert options for guests.  I have never heard of this trend before, although I’ll admit I’ve been out of the loop since canceling my subscription to Selfish Bride Monthly magazine.  Tongue Out

What the heck?  I’ve never heard of that.  Not to mention the thought of eating that much cake is just gross!

I’m betting there was no cake – just frosting around cardboard, or not enough cake to serve everyone. Maybe she was trying to save face or something? Definately rude

That’s very weird. Why anyone would want to keep a cake to themselves that could feed 100+ people is beyond me.

I wonder what they told the guests who were waiting for a piece? I assume some people were standing around watching the cake cutting and then waiting for their piece.
