If the reception is a small get together with only finger food and limited number of guests, then the couple would immediately cut the cake after greeting the guests. If the reception is an elaborate one with many guests, then the couple would cut the cake after the dinner is served and after they enjoy their dance i.e. late in the evening usually. Hence, it is essential to choose the cake cutting wedding songs according to the mood of the reception.
Cut the cake carefully as the photographer and other guests clicking pictures would tell you to pause or stand in a particular way. Listen to them because surely you would want good pictures of your cake cutting. If it is a layered one, cut the bottom layer. Cut gently if the cake is very soft. The bride should hold the knife with the groom's hand on the top of her hand while cutting the cake.
Avoid smudging of cake on each others faces. After cutting it, feed a piece of cake to each other. It is a good idea to offer it to each other's parents. It shows love and respect to each others' families.
Cake cutting also varies with the shape of the cake. Round cakes are divided into concentric circles and then cut into slices. Heart shaped cakes are first divided into equal rows before slicing them. Square shaped can be easily cut into rows and columns. Slicing it carefully is essential, especially if the cake is very soft as it can get crumbled easily. Caterers in the reception hall offer to do the slices charging a certain fee.
