I was wondering if others were going to make any changes to their wedding cake because of COVID. Originally we had ordered a four tiered cake that would serve about 100 guests and kitchen cakes to serve the remainder. Our guest list will be less than or originally planned 200 and I don’t like the idea of having the cake out on display. I’m wondering if we just ask the baker to change the cake to a single tier to display and kitchen cakes for the guests or if we should make some sort of plexiglass barrier to prevent germs. My dad can easily make a plexiglass barrier if needed.
If the baker allows, I believe it would be quite beneficial to reduce the tiers and revert to cupcakes or a smaller serving cake. At the end of the day, your health comes first and I believe the plexiglass will be a great touch!
We aren't having that many guests (about 75-80 are expected) and we are doing a less formal option. (Nothing Bundt Cakes because delicious also I used to work there and everyone loves them!) Anyways but we are going to have masks and servers for the food so no one will be touching or breathing on it. So maybe hire a server or ask a friend who doesn't have a responsibility to help with serving? Good luck and stay safe!
I literally thought about the same thing 2 days ago, having it out all night does not aound too great right now. I was thinking individually wraped cup cakes but I am still not sure. My planer suggested a dummy cake but those are expensive still and then you still need to get cake for the kitchen to serve.
