I know there's probably been a dozen threads already along this line, but I didn't see any that were very recent, so in fear of getting "yelled" at for resurrecting a zombie thread I figured I'd start a new one
When is the best time to serve the cake? Right after dinner? An hour after? Or later on in the reception, maybe an hour before it's over? I've heard some people say that they serve it later on, since the cutting of the cake is sometimes the "signal" that it's ok for guests to start leaving so they delay it so people won't leave right after dinner. (In my experience, all except 1 wedding I've been to have had the cake served later on in the reception.)
What say you all?
