Pre-cut sheet cakes are starting to emerge as an affordable and time-saving alternative to traditional wedding cakes.  Oddly, these sheet cakes are most often used at both ends of the wedding budget spectrum. For couples planning elaborate weddings, with the ornately sculptured cakes, cutting can be problematic if not done correctly.  So while that cake can be visually appreciated in all of its glory, the bakery will often serve pieces of sheet cake instead.  For those weddings that are on the more frugal side, couples can choose to have a traditional cake in a smaller size, or one that is purely ornamental, such as foam-based cakes.  Sheet cakes can help save on the per slice cost.
