I’ve never had good wedding cake. Most of the time it’s made days before the event, sits in a fridge and then on the day of, it sits out all day. I usually take a bite, say yuck, throw my napkin over it and go back to dancing or whatever.
If it’s made of fondant, I never accept it. I hate pulling it off and it always seems to make the cake dry.

I always try the cake! I’ll usually eat it if it is halfway decent, but I don’t like fondant, so I pull it off.

I’m REALLY picky about cake. Like it has to be a normal flavor (chocolate, vanilla or marbled, with a couple exceptions). It can’t have any type of fruit or jelly or grossness, it has to be buttercream etc. So I put no, I don’t eat the cake. In fact, we’re not having a cake. Surprise surprise LOL.

We actually managed to have super delicious, moist cupcakes (and a top cake). They were all eaten and some had seconds so I can only assume they were good 🙂 We had chocolate cupcakes with vanilla buttercream and vanilla cupcakes with chocolate ganache that tasted like fudge. A.MA.ZING, 🙂

I usually dont eat cake at weddings. I’m not a fan of frosting/icing/fondant or anything too sweet. I’m not a big fan of cake in general unless its something really good. wedding cakes ususally dont taste that great anyway, they are more a part of the decor than the menu IMO

For me, it sort of depends on the situation. I usually *like* to go get a slice of cake, but I tend to be one of the last to get cake if it’s cut slices.
My reason for this is that I have always felt weird about the whole “line up for your cake” thing after the bride/groom cut the cake! I have never wanted to go stand in line for cake, so I just wait. Sometimes, after all that waiting, I just decide against it. I think this is part of the reason why some guests don’t get cake.
The few exceptions to my cake-wait policy: Cupcakes and small weddings.
If it’s a small wedding, then there isn’t really much of a line, so I feel like I can go up earlier. The most recent wedding I went to was like this (there were maybe 50-70 guests?) and I was able to get seconds. And it was tasty pumpkin cake 🙂
And with cupcakes, the line goes faster b/c people just grab and go. The one downside to cupcakes though (for those thinking about it) is that you sort of have to guard them until the cake cutting. I went to a wedding once were guests were grabbing the cupcakes with their hors d’oeuvres!

It isn’t often I have cake, so when I have the chance, I definitely eat it!

I always take a slice of cake, take a bite or two and decide if it’s good. I just feel obligated to at least try it.
I can’t remember the last time I ate dessert in a restaurant either, so it’s not unusual to not have something.
But, especially if there are better options than wedding cake, I can be tempted away from it.

That’s really interesting, I’ve never been to a wedding where you went up and got your own cake. It’s always been cut in the back and served by the server for your table. I’d agree that if I had to go up and stand on line to get it I probably wouldn’t either. 🙂

I love cake, pretty much any cake, so I always eat it.
We had cupcakes at our wedding and they got annihilated (and I ordered 2 per person). We ate the cutting cake all week, and even at the end of the week it tasted really good!

I LOVE wedding cake! I don’t care if it’s from a fancy, beautiful tier though, I’m totally happy with sheet cake. 🙂

After I surgically remove all the fondant…yes I do eat the cake!!! Clearly our cake will not have fondant…lol
