How much wedding cake is wasted because it's served too late? Some guests are full, some guests already left…
For something that couples fuss over, wedding cake often goes neglected.
Wedding cake should be served during the cocktail hour, or, if there is no cocktail hour, then immediately following the ceremony. Make it a refreshment. I'd rather fill up with a considered cake than overcooked beef or fish.
Idea: A wedding reception where the centerpieces are actually cake.
