Should You Have a Marijuana Wedding Cake?

So, you’re about to take that plunge into married life, Congratulations! You want your big night to be unique, memorable by all, and not just by the hangover next morning. While others may host their weddings in expensive venues, with only a skin-deep aesthetic appeal, you’ve decided you want to be original. You want everyone’s night to be as special as yours.
Friends and family surround you, and don’t want there to be a disconnection between you and them. Wedding’s should be interpersonal celebrations of an union, not a way to flaunt your good fortune. How will you do that? There are of course many gimmicks, such as rotating seating throughout the night, to ensure that everyone can spend time with each other, but here’s one you likely haven’t thought of: A marijuana wedding cake!

Won’t that taste terrible?

With medical marijuana becoming legal in more and more places around the world every year, a new craze seems to be sweeping enthusiasts. Edibles have been around as long as marijuana has been cultivated, known for their distinctive taste, which often clashes with other foods. Recently manufacturers and research labs have been developing a new wave of edibles: more potent than ever before and with almost no taste.

This offers many opportunities for baking enthusiasts. You can add marijuana to almost any treat, be it cupcakes, the traditional brownies, or a wedding cake, without worrying about the taste. Traditionally, chocolate was used to mask the taste, but now – you can have a vanilla cake, with any icing, without fear! If people weren’t told, they wouldn’t even know that they were ingesting THC until the world started spinning

What About the Law?

Though Marijuana may be legal in your area, there are still some considerations you need to take. Not everyone may imbibe, it’s not legal for kids to consume it, and some of your guests may have jobs which frequently require drug tests. Though consumption may be legal recreationally, you can still be fired for having it in your system, and rightfully so.
Therefore, it’s essential that you tell everyone beforehand what will be in your cake. It’s better if you go one step further than that, and require anyone who wishes to partake to sign a disclosure – to ensure that if there are any mishaps, the legal responsibility doesn’t fall back on you. There’s no better way to ruin your perfect night, than the threat of a looming lawsuit overhead! If you know there will be children or people who don’t imbibe, consider having a separate cake for them or make a levelled cake.

Can I Cook it at Home?

Yes, but there are many considerations you need to take. Traditionally marijuana was cooked at home, but wedding cakes are serious business, that takes much more work. Adding THC to a wedding cake complicates the baking process. From finding a suitable bonding agent (butter, not margarine) to ensuring the THC doesn’t reach its vaporization point. At 392 degrees fahrenheit, THC has completely broken down, but you also need to ensure your cake is thoroughly cooked through. This may make the already stressful wedding planning harder, and a single mistake could ruin your cake.
Though bakers may not have experience with THC itself, most skilled bakers do have the expertise needed, from working with other culinary ingredients whose flavours degrade at high temperatures. More so, if it goes bad – they are to blame, not you.

If you’re looking for something special for your wedding night, a marijuana cake may be just right for you!

Importance Of Hiring A Wedding Planner

When it comes to weddings, the planning process stretches over a very vast spectrum and involves a lot of work. These aspects are so numerous that it will take someone gifted or trained to do them to bring out the best output. Although, you as the bride might have prior experience or friends and family who can handle each task. Hiring a wedding planner has a lot of benefits but is it advisable for people who don’t have the financial capacity to do so. The fact is that it is a step that is worth it because they can help you in actualizing the following;

BUDGET CONSTRAINTS: Although hiring a wedding planner might cost you some amount of money, they can also help you save some. Wedding planners will help you cut, get cheap deals and make financial decisions that will save you some money. Experienced wedding planners have connections with different vendors and this reduces the cost of searching for these vendors. Also where vendors will want to play on your naivety and inexperience to extort money by charging you high fees, wedding planners can help you broker cheap deals.

WEDDING VISION: Wedding planners will help you ensure every last detail of your wedding vision is actualized. A wedding planner’s attention is solely focused on your special day and is paid to ensure that everything goes according to your unique plan. A wedding planner also knows your mind and will do your wish without you uttering a word. In the event of unexpected circumstances, a wedding planner will make sure your wedding vision is not abandoned but followed through to the end.

STRESS-FREE PROCESS: Since accepting the responsibility to plan and coordinate is that of the wedding planner, you are relieved of a large amount of stress. You do not need to worry about the monitoring the wines, searching for venues or constantly checking the bouquets of flower on the way. You do not even need to think about meeting a vendor or going through the hiring process. All you need do is to state your desire and vision, sit back and watch the wedding planner bring it to fruition. Hiring a wedding planner also keeps the process of working with the vendor streamlined and stress-free.

COORDINATING THE ENTIRE EVENT: a wedding divided into multiple venues and location will definitely need an overall planner. Although these venues might offer their own coordinators this will only be limited to specific aspects that the venue is responsible for. Your wedding planner comes in the scene by helping you coordinate the use and proper allocation of the venue’s resources and the resources and the ones you are providing. A wedding planner will see to it that every detail matched and is delivered at the right time.

PRESERVE RELATIONSHIP: There is nothing as burdensome as planning the wedding of two people from entirely different backgrounds. The event revolves not only around the couples but around their families’ expectations for the day. Tensions tend to arise between the two families during the planning process of the wedding. Hiring a wedding planner in this situation will surely be a great idea. A wedding planner can also be blamed for the certain situation instead of blaming the bride or aunt or sister handling a certain aspect of the wedding. This will definitely preserve the relationship and family ties
