Wedding Cake Cutting Diagrams

How to Cut Wedding Cake

When cutting wedding cut first remove the top tier from the cake stands or from the other wedding cake tiers. The top tier is usually saved for the first anniversary. Begin cutting the 2nd tier, then the 3rd and 4th and continue until all the wedding cake is cut. In general wedding cake is cut into pieces approximately 1 inch wide x 2 inches deep x 4 inches high (about 2 layers). Remember, the order of cutting is still the same even if a larger serving size is desired. For cakes shorter than 4 inches high, you will need to adjust and cut each slice approximately 1½ inches to 2 inches wide or wider to serve a proper cake portion.
