Cake Cutting

SONG SELECTIONS

Looking for the best songs for your ceremonial Cake Cutting? The following is a curated playlist of Cake Cutting songs that are perfect for this sugary-sweet moment of your wedding day!

The Cake Cutting formality is traditionally announced to all of the guests so they can gather around the cake as you and your spouse cut and feed each other a taste of your wedding cake. Typically, the groom places his right hand on top of the bride’s right hand, and the groom feeds the bride first before the bride feeds the groom. The ceremony concludes with a kiss, and then the guests are invited up to receive a slice of cake as a dessert social commences.

If the couple has opted to offer cupcakes, a cupcake is cut in half, and each half is fed to the bride and groom. Another fun option is to offer a Groom’s cake, which can be customized to the hobbies or interests of the groom. For example, a Seahawks football helmet cake for the groom who enjoys Seattle Seahawks football.

While you can buy a cake serving set from your cake baker, savvy couples purchase a cake serving set from Amazon. The cake serving set includes the wedding cake knife and the serving knife. Don’t forget the wedding cake topper too! A quick tip for cutting the cake: Run the cake cutting knife under hot water, dry it off, and then cut your wedding cake – your cuts will be smooth like butter.

Finally, because this formality can take longer than a few minutes, you may want to pick a few Cake Cutting songs for the entire Cake Cutting/Dessert Social sequence.

Enjoy the Cake Cutting songs below, and as always, a Spotify playlist is included at the end for your listening enjoyment!
