One-Tier Cutting Cake With Fresh Berries

“I used to work at a wedding venue as a banquet server in high school, and I can remember couples having this huge fancy cake that we would cut and serve, but most of it got thrown out,”  Stefanie says. “I vowed then that I would never spend money on an expensive, extravagant cake for my wedding.” Instead, the couple opted for a small one-tier cutting cake trimmed with fresh fruit, flowers and a “Love” cake topper. After dinner, the couple treated guests to a slice of white sheet cake with fresh berry filling and whipped cream—Chris’s favorite treat. “The sheet cake was delicious, and we saved a ton of money but still had a small pretty cake to display.”
