WHY A WEDDING CAKE?
Beginning in early Roman times, the cake has been a special part of the wedding celebration. A thin loaf made of wheat was broken over the bride's head at the close of the ceremony to symbolize fertility and the guests eagerly picked up the crumbs as good luck charms. During the Middle Ages, it became traditional for the couple to kiss over a small cluster of cakes. Later, a clever baker decided to gather all these small cakes together, covering them with frosting. Thus, the modern tiered cake was born.
Wedding cakes have evolved over the years to focus more on expressing the individuality of your special day. Couples now have many design options to chose from; traditional, contemporary, rustic or whimsical and much, much more. Today, wedding cakes should be as distinctive as the bride and groom.
