  • poll: Did you marry a cake smasher?

    Yes, and we're still happily married.

    Yes, and we're divorced!

    My groom would never!

    We both licked a little icing off of each other, so cute!

    My SO says that in his family during birthday parties and whatnot, cake smashing is really common. But of course, those events are usually way less formal…and expensive, than a wedding. Still, I do think I’ll need to make sure and ask him, since he’s so used to it he might momentarily forget just how expensive my make-up and hair will be, and I’ll be extremely upset to have food shoved in my face.

    I’m wayyyy against the majority here.  My husband and I are constantly joking with each other and neither of us take life too seriously.  We have a fun, loving relationship and we were together for 6 years and engaged for 1 before we got married.  I KNEW no matter if I begged and pleaded, the cake would end up in my face, so instead of threatening him with his life, I decided two could play that game.  I tucked a linen napkin down my dress, grabbed a huge piece of cake, and we were BOTH cake smashers.  It was SO FUN, made for great pictures, and is something I will never forget.  I think it is unfair to lump every guy who smashes cake into the “grumpy, disconnected groom” category.  To each his own!  And we are still very happily married 1 month short of 2 years later!

    I loved the article!

    My husband and I talked it over a little, but I knew he’d never do any smashing. We actually were very playful and silly. I even wound up my cake like I was a pitcher about to throw it from the mound. But I gently just placed it in his mouth. Fun times!

    I think its cute, but since I’m paying for make up and hair that day, I wouldn’t be happy if Fiance was a smasher. We are a really fun loving couple, but I just don’t want cake up my nose at my wedding.

    Besides that, I make cakes for a living and end up with it in my hair, my clothes and I’ve even found frosting in my ear o.O but I’m also in the privacy of my bakery lol

    Is someone who does this REALLY prepared to earn the respect of a husband or wife?

    Actually, cutting the cake is a sort of charming nod to the expected hospitallity of the newly married couple, but is there any charming reason for B & G to “feed” each other at all?

    Could someone explain why shoving cake into a presumed loved one’s face is “good fun”? Good fun for whom, exactly?

    “Cute”? puppies and babies are “cute”. And is it necessary to be “cute” at the celebration of the joining of two loving people for life? If so, give be boring and corny and “uncute” every day of the week.

    Darling Husband kept saying the whole time that he was going to smash cake in my face, and of course I told him that he better not!! 

    When the time came, we cut a piece of the cake and I had the rest of the slice on a plate in my hand.  I fed Darling Husband a small bite, and he fed me a small bite…then he took his finger covered in icing and wiped it all over my nose.  I tried to get him back with a small bit of icing on my finger, and he dodged me, then I just smashed the plate in his face that had the rest of our slice on it. lol

    edepp2010:  Eeeew. I would never smash cake in my grooms face. Nor would he do that to me. And we are a fun and playful couple. We each just find it disrespectful to shove cake in the face of your loved one. Feeding cake to one another? That’s fine. Cake smashing… No…. There would be a wedding and a funeral that same weekend if my groom did that to me.

    We didn’t have a cake, but I highly doubt my husband would’ve smashed it in my face. I’m not a girly girl and so my husband knew how much time & effort had gone into hair and makeup for that one day. He knew I would’ve killed him if he’d ruined it with cake (or any other food) haha.

    My dad did it to my mom at their wedding in 1989 and my mom was livid. White and burgundy cake everywhere. They recently had their 25th anniversary and someone joked about it at their vow renewal reception, but my dad knew not to do it again. It made for funny pictures and a funny story though!

    JFC, a little cake on the face is not indicative of an impending divorce. The shove? Yes. Cake smash? Please. If you’re not into it then whatever but some people find it fun as long as no major damage is done. If a little frosting on the face is going to send you running for an annulment then you had no business getting married to begin with.

    Absolutely not. Never never never. What a disrespectful way to start a marriage. Tacky and rude!
