After we finished with the toasts we went ahead and did the cake cutting. I knew the grandmothers would be getting anxious for this part so that they could head out early. Also, my 6 year old niece/flower girl was having a hard time concentrating on anything BUT that cake. What can I say like aunt like niece.
I really loved our cake. It turned out exactly how I wanted it and it tasted quite yummy too. For my shower my mother gave us our engraved cake cutter and server which was great because I had planned to just buy a cheap one at Michael's. But now I'm glad we have a nice engraved set as a keepsake.
The one thing that surprised me was that I felt like there weren't many people watching us cut the cake. Even our families. Everyone seemed to be off talking or dancing or drinking. I guess the cake cutting isn't the most exciting part of a wedding but I thought at least our parents would be watching and from what I remember they weren't around. I could be mistaken though, as I've said the whole night is a blur now.*Here we are getting ready to make the first cut. Our photographers had to guide us on where and how to cut it*
*We fed each other nicely. I'm sorry but I just don't get the whole smashing cake in your spouse's face tradition. Why would you want to smash cake in the face of the person you just vowed to spend your life with?? There were several other people there I wouldn't have minded smashing cake in the face of but my husband was not one of them. It just seems rude and tacky. But that's just me. And God knows if I had gotten cake all over my face/dress/hair I would not have been happy. I know this is what makes for excitement for the guests but even as a guest when I've seen it done I just feel uncomfortable.*
*Nom Nom Nom*
Are you pro or anti cake in the face?
