Should your cake be a centerpiece that receives guests and invite them to stop and admire? or
Should your cake be the focal point that draws guests in and invite them to browse and enjoy all the details that you have so carefully planned for your event?
If your event is going to be held at a rental venue, always have the courtesy to ask the venue's staff what their preferred cake table locations are. Bottom line, they are the ones that know the space in and out, and can foresee problems that others wouldn't.
One piece of advice: Location of the cake is final
Tiered cakes are extremely heavy, and it is not a good idea to move them once they have been set up, unless this is coordinated by the cake vendor or other professional coordinated by the cake vendor.
2. Elevate that cake!
I find it very disappointing when a beautifully executed cake is placed straight on a plain table or over an unfinished cake board.
Renting a cake pedestal and ordering a finished board to display your cake may add to the cost of your order, but believe me, it is worth it.
Your cake will look professional and pristine placed on a pedestal and elevated from the table, It will be the showstopper that you envision for sure!
