If you our also attending the wedding as a guest, do you cut the cake or have catering staff handle it.

I guess that would depend on who it is for and if they paid you for it or it is a gift? I personally have made a cake for someone, but let them know they needed someone to cut it - though I told them I would show them how to do it first icon_smile.gif AND I have made one and done the cutting - one was for a friend and one was for family - I guess it depends.

I know a lot of bakers who sell cakes have that as an option, but they are paid for it.

It depends on if i agreed to cut the cake. Some brides will ask that you cut the cake, so that they know that responsibility is taken care of and no one is running around looking for someone to cut the cake. I have not made a cake for a wedding that had catering staff available to cut the cake. I've been the cutter for all events that i attended (if i made the cake). I would be prepared to cut the cake, if you want it done properly and so the bride gets the requested amount of servings.

It depends on the venue. Some dictate that they must cake (and then charge for it). Some brides ask that you cut it. I have cut someone else's cake, at an out of town family wedding. It all just depends.
