It’s not your grandmother’s kosher wedding cake with white butter crème icing and a plastic bride and groom on top. Today’s wedding and bat & bar mitzvah cakes are works of art and as much a part of the décor as the table centerpieces. If you’re going to invest in a glam cake, it only makes sense to place it in a glam setting. A table draped in pretty linen is just the beginning of setting the stage for the cake cutting.
The right backdrop will make your wedding or bat/bar mitzvah cake table and dessert buffet a focal point in the room.
When it comes to hosting a wedding, bat & bar mitzvah or party, presentation is everything. Appetizers, cocktails and desserts can be easily forgotten. But you don’t need to serve the crème de la crème to make your food and drink choices memorable.
Industry expert Brianna Ellis from The Sands at Atlantic Beach notes “interactive food stations such as “Action Stations” really make your guests enjoy ordering and choosing food options with their own personal twist.”
