Here in Florida, outdoor weddings are growing more and more popular. And why shouldn’t they…. we have access to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, the views and the sunsets are spectacular!
However, many brides (and even caterers) fail to pay attention to one important detail… where to place the cake. While they look at the layout of the area and pick a spot that it fits into nicely…. few think about where the sun may be shining, and many cakes have melted because of this oversite. I have even noticed that many indoor venues place the cake underneath a window where the sun shines through.
Nobody wants to head to the cake for the cutting and find a cake puddle…. so as you’re designing the layout for your reception, take the sunshine into consideration, and place your beautiful cake in a shady spot!
