    How about putting it right in front of the stage on a table by itself? Maybe you can even put some flowers or a sign on the edge of the stage behind it.

    @jltoth: Of those  two choices, I would choose the stage. People aren’t going  to be able to see much of the detail on the cake, but frankly, for many of them, that won’t be an issue.

    The cake would be safe from any accidental bumps on the stage. Your guests will also get a great view of the cake cutting. Usually only those at the front really get to see anything. 6.5 feet is the height of a moderately tall man, and I’ve never had a problem seeing their heads when we went to the theatre.

    @jltoth:  I kind of like the idea of having it on the stage. That way the cake is on display and everyone will be able to see you when you cut the cake. Plus you won’t have to worry about anyone accidentally bumping into the table or anything.

    Btw, the ballroom at your venue is GORGEOUS. I absolutely love it!

    @jltoth:  the thought of a spotlight on the cake worries me – all that heat? I would worry that it would be melted… FWIW, I’ve never gone up to a cake to check it out, and I somehow always miss the cake cutting anyway.

    @jltoth:  I don’t really care about seeing the cake, I care about seeing YOU cut the cake.  For that reason, I vote going with the stage.
