I don’t find it rude or selfish but it’s definitely strange and seems to be a waste of money!

Around here people cut into the top tier for the formal cake cutting and then save the rest of that tier to eat on their one year anniversary (it needs to be frozen of course) but I have NEVER heard of someone not serving the rest of the cake to guests. As a lover of dessert, I am very offended by the idea of no dessert at a wedding.

It was fake cake they do a wedge in the styrofoam and then put a slice of real cake in it and they do it from bottom layers too. they mark where the bride is supposed to cut it with icing around. but your bride made it obvious that it was fake cake by not serving sheet cake in the back like most brides do.
EDIT: here is the link to the blog i found the pics from

Love all the input ladies. I hate to burst everyone’s bubble but it was absolutely not fake cake. I chatted with the bride’s best friend (and MOH) today who told me about the return to moldy fridge cake. So sadly, it was all wasted…every delicious crumb.
Wow!!! That is crazy and very elaborate. I have never seen someone do that before.

Maybe Maid/Matron of Honor is in on it too? I still think its fake cake because it makes no sense whatsoever to take a cake that huge just for the two of them, and it “conveniently” went bad so no one had any. Sounds fishy.
Edit: unless they REALLY love cake? LOL

I have never heard of this…and I’d be annoyed if it happened at a wedding I was at! We took home an extra sheet cake that was left over, and didnt even finish that, forget the whole cake! Eek!

I’ve seen the cake taken away too but thats been for cutting and boxing to go which seems to be common.
in regards to this thread topic – if they did indeed take the whole real cake then there’s karma in action seeing it get spoiled!!

Ooooh. I do not like that AT ALL! How selfish of them to save it for themselves! How disgusting of them to not even preserve it so they could have it after their honeymoon. Did they not think this out properly beforehand? I am NOT a fan of this trend. Think about it this way: you spend hundreds, maybe thousands, of dollars on your cake. Why…WHY!!!…would you not share it with your guests? I’m not going to lie, I LOVE sweets and cake, but I could NOT eat an entire cake by myself + my FH. I would get sooooooo sick of it!

Why would the Maid/Matron of Honor come back after the honeymoon with the bride and groom? The Maid/Matron of Honor is the bride’s BFF. If my BFF did this for her wedding, I would lie along with her. I think it’s a fake cake and she didn’t think to have a sheet cake in the back. It is what it is, either way it’s stupid. You don’t cut a cake, real or fake, and not serve cake to your guests. Besides, it probably wasn’t all that glorious. 95% of wedding cakes have tasted really bad, IMO. lol

What’s next? Pouring a bunch of glasses of champagne for toasts and then not letting the guests drink them? What is wrong with people?
