4 Advantages of Kitchen Cakes

Kitchen cakes offer many benefits to stressed out brides.  Kitchen cakes, are standard sized sheet cakes that are kept in the kitchen. These cakes are purchased usually in addition to a smaller tier cake or fake cake to keep on display.  They have a basic icing finish and no decoration whatsoever but are never seen by your guests until it is cut and served to these guests. Here are four advantages to having kitchen cakes at your wedding.

1.       COST: The biggest deciding factor for many brides in getting a kitchen cake is the cost saving qualities. Since they involve less than half of the decoration time for a tier cake, the labor cost that the bakery factors in will go down dramatically.

2.       TIME: Many of us have attended weddings where there is a large time gap between when the bride and groom cut the cake, and when the guest receives it. By having cakes in the back before the guest and groom have even started, the catering staff is able to start cutting and platting so that servers may start bringing out cake as soon as the tier is cake is brought back. 

3.       VARIETY: Many bakeries are used to baking multiple flavors in different sized tiers for the happy couple. Kitchen cakes assure that there is an equal amount of each flavor instead of worrying about the top tier being too small to accommodate everyone that would prefer that flavor. This also allows the bride and groom to pick different icings flavors. This may raise the cost but be perfect for the couple that would like a rich chocolate cake with a peanut butter buttercream icing in addition to a carrot cake with cream cheese icing.

4.       ALLERGIES: For those couples that have guests or family members with allergies, kitchen cakes are a great way to keep things safe and avoid cross contact/contamination. Many bakeries offer doing a separate allergen free tier but this may worry some since the tiers are still touching. By keeping the cakes separate and letting both the bakery, and catering staff know, there will be no worries about allergic reactions.
