Cutting the Cake – Personalized Cake Knife and Server Sets

Cake serving sets are great gift ideas for weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, and many other special occasions and celebrations.

One of the traditions at a wedding is the cake cutting ceremony. Wedding cakes today range from simple white cakes to extravagant multi-tiered cakes. No matter what kind of cake is present at the wedding reception, one thing is always certain. The bride and groom have to cut the cake and they will most likely need something to cut it with.

A great way for the newly married couple to cut the first piece of cake together is with a beautiful cake serving set. Either gold or silver serving sets are well suited for a wedding. A heart shaped server set can symbolize the love of the new couple. Not only will a cake serving set look elegant, but it is a gift that can be kept forever and used over and over again for years to come.

Anniversaries will be an especially great time for the couple to reuse their special set. Some couples choose to follow the custom of saving the top tier of their wedding cake to enjoy together on their first wedding anniversary. Imagine how a newlywed couple could look back and remember their wedding day and use their personalized cake server set on their first anniversary.

Saving a part of the wedding cake for a year may not be the most practical tradition. It probably tastes how you would imagine a one year old cake to taste. You can try to wrap it up as best you can and freeze it, or instead, you could order a small cake that is similar to your wedding cake and have it ready on your first anniversary. This way you can still celebrate this tradition and have a delicious, fresh cake to enjoy.

imageCutting the cake is typically followed by the bride feeding a piece of cake to the groom and the groom to the bride. Some couples may even go as far as smashing the cake in each other’s faces. After spending all that time and money on the perfect dress, your hair, and makeup, would you really want to have cake smashed in your face? I can’t say that I would want it to happen to me, but I think it might be funny to see at someone else’s wedding. Some people may even see this as disrespectful, since the bride and groom feeding each other a piece of their wedding cake is a symbol of the love and respect a couple has for each other. It all depends on the couple and what they decide is right for them.
