@Treejewel19:  WTF? Who eats an entire cake? Listen, if they actually ate the whole thing, I guess I’ll pull in a Ron Burgundy reference… I’m not even mad… I’m impressed! But it’s still incredibly selfish and I hope it goes bad and they get sick. Even more so than they would from eating that much sugar and butter.

I have never heard of this…doesn’t it defeat the purpose of having a wedding cake?  I can only imagine someone throwing a birthday party, blowing out the candles on their cake, and then saying, “Okay.  No cake for anyone but me!”  The whole thing just sounds ridiculous.  It’s a party!  Let them eat cake!  Why would those people want to eat an entire cake by themselves anyway?  They’re probably going to gain like 15 pounds.

I mean it’s one thing if it’s obvious that it’s a regular-sized cake that you bought from Walmart or something, but to spend that kind of money on a tiered wedding cake and keep it all? Wuuuutt?

i’d be pissed if i went to a wedding where they refused to serve the cake to the guests. we took the top tier of our cake (the bottom 2 tiers fed all the guests) and i ate it within 2 days. i love cake but i can’t imagine taking the entire thing home to eat. cake doesn’t stay good for very long.

That is seriously the weirdest “trend” I’ve ever heard of. I think the bride must be crazy. Maybe she heard of people saving the top tier and somehow confused it with the entire cake? And why wouldn’t she have enough dessert for everyone, then? I mean… why have a cake at all? If you and your husband want to eat an entire cake, just go buy one later!

I love cake and I could never eat a whole wedding cake by myself. It seems like a major waste of money and rude that they didn’t have enough dessert for their guests. I know I’d be terribly confused if I didn’t get a piece of cake.

What the hell would they do with a whole cake? Old cake is disgusting, and if they could eat that whole cake before it went old, I’d seriously be worried for them. By all means, save yourself a tier, but the whole cake? Yikes.

Sounds like a wedding cake vendor trend to boost their sales of other dessert items for a dessert bar.  Maybe they served it the next morning during a bridal brunch?  Otherwise, she wasted a lot of money on uneaten cake because a three tier cake isn’t going to fit in a standard freezer.

How weird. Why pay for that much cake if no one was going to eat it? 2 people can’t logically eat through a two tier cake, that’s insane and if you tried you would hate cake forever because you’d be eating it three times a day, everyday.
