Backdrops Put Your Wedding & Mitzvah Cake at Center Stage

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.
