I have also never heard of a cake cutting song. That’s a good pick though!

Depending on the type of music you like you could go with Sugar from Maroon 5 or Pour Some Sugar on me from Def Leppard. Those are my fav choices!

The most common ones seem to be the ones PP mentioned (Sugar from Maroon 5, Pour Some Sugar On Me from Def Leppard), then there’s also Cake By The Ocean by DNCE or Sugar Pie Honey Bunch by The Four Tops

I love Sweetest Thing!

We had Lovely Day by Bill Withers.

I think we went with L-O-V-E by Joss Stone? I wanted something light hearted but not too cheesy. But I think you’re supposed to use a song that references sweetness or candy, etc.

We did Ice Cream by Sarah McLachlan. Not actually cake but close enough for us.

We didn’t ask our DJ to play one, but he played Weird Al’s “Eat It.”  Which was perfect because I love Weird Al and one of his songs was part of our first dance, so our DJ picked well!

I’m bypassing the cake/dessert related songs because I simply can’t think of one that fits us. 

I wanted to go with the theme to Buffy the Vampire Slayer (we met on a fanboard years and years ago so we wanted to honor it), but FI feels it’s too “stabby” of a song for us to be holding a knife for. laughing

I think we’re just going to go with “Love is All Around” by Wet Wet Wet.

FUN FACT:  The last time I got married, nearly 30 years ago, the standard song in my neck of the woods was sung to the tune of The Farmer in the Dell:

 

The bride cuts the cake, 
The bride cuts the cake, 
Hi ho the dairo the bride cuts the cake 

The groom cuts the cake 
The groom cuts the cake 
Hi ho the dairo the groom cuts the cake 

The bride feeds the groom 
The bride feeds the groom 
Hi ho the dairo the bride feeds the groom 

The groom feeds the bride 
The groom feeds the bride 
Hi ho the dairo the groom feeds the bride 

The bride kisses the groom 
The bride kisses the groom 
Hi ho the dairo the bride kisses the groom

The groom kisses the bride 
The groom kisses the bride 
Hi ho the dairo the groom kisses the bride

We did L-O-V-E by Nat King Cole 🙂 It flowed nicely, and is a pretty quick song…perfect for cake cutting.
