One of our edgy clients from New York decided that a huge puffy wedding cake was not her thing. Instead, she did a little wedding cake as the centerpiece for each table. Each fresh flower trimmed cake was perched on a crystal or silver cake stand wrapped in ivy. Each cake was different, and each one was big enough to serve the 10 guests at the table. Rose petals were scattered over the tabletop, and there was a silver cake cutter on each table.
After she and the groom cut their tiny cake, they asked someone at each table to cut the centerpiece and serve it! What a great way to promote comunity and conversation! (* And to save money, as the cake stood in for the centerpiece!*)
