Cutting your cake

Remove top layer, including cake plate, and place it in box provided for bride and groom. Always use a box lined in plastic wrap for the best preservation of the “first anniversary” cake. If possible, freeze the cake for 20 minutes before placing in the box. Once the top is cake is placed in the box, wrap it several times with plastic wrap and then finally in aluminum foil (2 layers). One Day before your first anniversary, place cake in refrigerator to start defrosting. After about 2 hours remove cake from its wrapping and continue to defrost. Just before you have a slice, remove the cake from the refrigerator and allow it to come to room temperature and enjoy!

This guide shows how to cut popular shaped wedding tiers into pieces approximately 1 in. x 2 in. by two layers high (about 4 in.). Even if a larger serving size is desired, the order of cutting is still the same. The first step in cutting is to remove the top tier, and then begin the cutting with the 2nd tier followed by the 3rd, 4th and so on. The top tier is usually saved for the first anniversary, so it is not calculated into the serving amount. Remember there are usually dowel rods (plastic or wooden) in all wedding cakes. You will want to remove those before serving the cake!

Square Tiers- Move in 2 in. from the outer edge and cut across. Then slice 1 in. pieces of cake. Now move in another 2 in. and slice again until the entire tier is cut.
