I just googled “how to cut a wedding cake” and lots of tutorials popped up.  Just have your mom and aunt read up/watch some videos.  I’d be more worried about the fact that there are no serving staff to help during the entire reception.

My aunts are cutting my cake.  Just a couple of hints (I used to be a cake decorator – taking a break for college)

1.  Separate the tiers.  Seriously, trying to serve while it’s still stacked is hard.  Just slide a cake knife under the board, and lift.  It should come right up.

2.  There are two options to cutting a cake.  The first is to cut a straight line, about 4″ in, and to gently lay it down.  Then cut slices that are 1″ wide.  The end slices will be odd shaped.  When this layer is gone, then cut another 4″ wide strip, and repeat.

The second option is to cut in a ring around the layer, 4″ deep, and then cut each slice.  This way can be messier, though.

3.  Make sure to have a spare plate for scraping the knife on, use a knife not a pancake spatula, and have someone handing plates to the cutter.
